Here Are 16 Additional Vendors Coming To Pax8’s Marketplace This Year

About 85 vendors are on Pax8’s marketplace today. About 100 will be on the marketplace by the end of the year.

The demand to join Pax8’s marketplace is rapidly increasing. In fact, there’s about 400 vendors on a wait list to join the marketplace. Five new vendors reach out per day, according to Ryan Burton, vice president of product strategy for Pax8.

“We’ve really been focused on the IT stack from security, infrastructure continuity, current communications and network,” Burton told CRN. “And that’s going to expand into new areas.”

He said there’s both a “huge demand” to service MSPs, as they have a need for a lot of vendors, and vendors looking to come into Pax8’s ecosystem wanting to get on the marketplace.

“Partners are asking for more,” he said. “We’re going through and closing holes in our portfolio based on frameworks.”

There’s also a heavy focus on bringing in more security vendors. In June, Denver-based cloud distributor Pax8 partnered with Austin, Texas-based CrowdStrike to further its footprint in the MSP market and help enhance protection and mitigation when it comes cyber risks.

What Pax8 has done in terms of creating this disruptive cloud marketplace makes it easy to buy, easy to scale and easy to bill. It’s the whole life-cycle management of how an MSP consumes technology. We chose Pax8 not only because of their scale and reach from a global perspective, but also the experience that partners have.”

One vendor new to the martketplace this week is Rewst, a purpose-built robotic process automation (RPA) platform that combines seamless integration with Pax8’s pre-built integrations, ready-to-use workflows and training and support.
