Apple, Hackers And MSPs: 5 Questions With Addigy CEO Jason Dettbarn
Dettbarn, whose company specializes in Apple device management software, speaks with CRN about the recent iMessage exploit, Apple’s product announcements this week and Addigy’s expanded efforts with managed services providers.
How is Addigy working more closely with MSPs?
Addigy has been ramping up its efforts with managed services providers in recent years, and MSPs already accounted for 50 percent of the company’s revenue even before the Pax8 agreement announced in August, Dettbarn said. And with that agreement, “I’m very bullish about what this means for our MSP channel,” h said. “Pax8 gives us that extended reach into MSPs.”
Addigy offers the “only multi-tenant remote monitoring and management (RMM) and mobile device management (MDM) tool available for Apple devices,” and Addigy “ offers MSPs an affordable option to expand their Apple business,” Pax8 said in a news release in August.
Ultimately, working with Pax8 and MSPs is a “great way to ensure that we’re expanding with SMBs at a fast rate,” Dettbarn said. “We expect the Apple ecosystem to be growing in the SMB space, arguably, at an even faster rate than in enterprise. We feel like our investment [in MSPs] is going to be continuing to pay off for the next decade.”
