Emerging Vendor’s Latest Innovation Cycle Combines the Power of SaaS Discovery with Multi-Vendor SaaS Management and Security in a Single Solution Designed Exclusively for MSPs
Ottawa, Ont. Canada – May 25, 2021 – Modernizing and optimizing the way MSPs manage their clients’ fast-growing SaaS ecosystems, technology pioneer Augmentt is pleased to introduce its latest technology innovation: Augmentt Engage.
Available now to trial or buy, Augmentt Engage makes it easy for MSPs to accelerate secure SaaS management by streamlining provisioning, simplifying daily user management and increasing productivity and security, at scale from a single screen.
“Security is a huge focus for today’s MSP and with more and more people and organizations moving their business to the cloud and taking advantage of a hybrid environment, the risks around Shadow IT and security in general are increasing dramatically,” says James Wood, CTO, CalTech. “Having the ability to discover, manage and secure these SaaS applications proactively, remotely and from one platform, one pane of glass, will be a big advantage for the MSP.”
With immediate support for Office 365 applications, Augmentt Engage provides MSPs with a strong, actionable, real-time view of what is and is not taking place across their customers’ entire SaaS ecosystem. Engineered on the experience and expertise of the company’s Partner Advisory Board, Augmentt Engage is foundational to the frontline success of today’s MSPs, many of which are hyper-focused on empowering their technical talent, to optimize operations and enhancing the customer experience.
“Historically, managing SaaS solutions at scale fell into the ‘too hard’ to execute without spending a tremendous amount of time and money category,” says Bill Lunam, Chief Technology Officer, Kinetics Group, a successful IT and solutions provider based in New Zealand. “Augmentt is the only solution we found that allows us to identify and manage SaaS applications that are being used both in-office and on the road. With more than 5,500 devices under management, having the ability to quickly and easily deploy Augmentt across all devices anywhere in the world was a real kicker for us.”
Designed to identify, centrally manage and secure all SaaS usage in distributed environments, Augmentt Engage integrates seamlessly with the majority of today’s PSA and RMM platforms including ConnectWise and N-able. It also serves to improve the experience delivered by today’s MSPs, offering reliable data around SaaS usage, spend optimization and security policies.
“Our goal is to give MSPs complete visibility and total SaaS control of their customers’ solution ecosystems, from a single platform,” says Derik Belair, co-founder and CEO, Augmentt. “We are the only channel-enabled SaaS management solution on the market today, and we’re innovating at a rapid clip to serve as a single source of truth and reliability for MSPs when it comes to delivering secure SaaS management.”
