MSP/MSSP Platforms


WatchGuard Cloud

With the goal of simplifying and improving the way that managed services providers bring security to their customers, the WatchGuard Cloud platform recently received a number of major updates including a centralized new interface for MSPs. The update makes life easier for MSPs by providing a single location for delivering and managing customer security across network security, advanced threat detection and multi-factor authentication (MFA). Other key enhancements include simplified network policy creation and management; the addition of WatchGuard’s ThreatSync threat correlation service; and enablement of risk-based MFA as a way for MSPs to bring zero trust security to their customers.


Druva Managed Services Center

A multi-tenant SaaS solution for MSPs, Druva’s Managed Services Center offers rapid onboarding for customers to the Druva Cloud Platform without the need for managing hardware infrastructure. The solution provides MSPs with management capabilities for customized service levels, visibility into storage consumption and a real-time view of customer health.


With a focus on providing unified visibility for MSPs, the Liongard platform continually gathers data from cloud environments, network systems, endpoints, apps and services. The platform brings an automated approach to discovery, documentation and auditing—enabling MSPs to secure their clients, scale operations and standardize processes.


With MSP360 RMM, MSPs can simplify their management of IT infrastructures with a single location for remote monitoring and management. Key features include system resource monitoring, performance monitoring, antivirus management, Windows patch management and PowerShell scripting.
