Six-year-old Uplevel Systems offers a simplified approach to managed IT services for small businesses that is exclusively designed to be offered up through MSP partners. The company’s solution today includes security functions such as firewall, IPS, secure DNS, VPN, and built-in SD-WAN, among other offerings.
The networking upstart last summer launched a new purchasing model to help MSPs extend more IT options to their end customers in the form of an upfront purchasing option -- the Equipment Purchase Program.
