The delivery of truly differentiated offerings that create opportunities for partners during this unprecedented period is the crowning achievement of our 2020 Tech Innovators.

MSP Technology



With its platform for MSPs, Liongard empowers them with deep visibility into on-premises systems and applications, network devices and cloud services. The end result is faster on-boarding times and the ability to resolve customer issues more quickly. Key features of Liongard’s platform include automated documentation of the full customer environment; powerful reporting capabilities; automated alerts; and a central location for MSPs to view comprehensive system data. The platform also stands out by continually collecting data and offering historical timelines, allowing MSPs to turn back the clock to answer key questions about what took place in the past.


Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud

With Cyber Protect Cloud, Acronis integrates an array of tools for MSps into one central site—eliminating complexity and improving productivity and cyberprotection. The tools include backup, disaster recovery, advanced anti-malware and endpoint management solutions, and unifying them ultimately allows MSPs to make security a focal point of their offering to customers.

Axcient AirGap

Axcient’s AirGap helps MSPs to eliminate ransomware attacks through separating requests to delete data from the actual mechanics of data deletion. AirGap walls off data from all delete requests, places false positives in the system to deter repeat attempts and adds human controls to prevent accidental data loss.

Barracuda Message Bus

Barracuda Message Bus enables MSPs to integrate products with varying technologies such as SOAP and REST APIs; different location logic, including geographic sites versus server locations; and convert log files to alerts. MSPs can use the offering to simplify administration and integrate more quickly with security products.
