OpenDNS revealed Wednesday the integration of its Umbrella for MSPs security service with ConnectWise's service management software. It is part of a recognition by OpenDNS of the channel's push toward a single-pane-of-glass system, Dima Kumets, OpenDNS MSP product manager, told CRN at IT Nation. Kumets said that his company has seen "exponential growth" in its MSP business and the partnership announcement shows how the company is working with its partners to provide a better, more seamless security solution.
"If we can help our partners be better off and grow faster, we will absolutely do that," Kumets said.
The product will help those already using ConnectWise, the most popular managing platform with OpenDNS partners, to be more proactive than reactive in the cloud marketplace, Kumets said.
