Paessler, LANAIR Group Partner to Launch ControlPoint Monitor for Hosted Network Monitoring

Turnkey Solution Built on Award-Winning PRTG Network Monitor Puts the Power of Enterprise Network Monitoring in the Cloud for Managed Service Providers

Nuremberg and Los Angeles (November 6, 2013) - Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring specialist, and LANAIR, a leading IT solutions provider, today announced the launch of ControlPoint Monitor, a powerful new cloud-based network monitoring solution. ControlPoint officially debuts to the public Nov. 13 at the ConnectWise IT Nation 2013 in Orlando, Fla., where ControlPoint is a Gold Sponsor.

Powered by Paessler's PRTG Network Monitor, ControlPoint provides a plug-and-play solution for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) looking to add a robust, scalable remote monitoring solution to their service offering. Deployment on the SaaS platform enables MSPs to launch a monitoring solution faster, generating new revenue and positive return on investment quicker than building a solution in-house.

ControlPoint includes all of the advanced PRTG functionality, including 200+ pre-built sensors for traffic, QoS, website, email, application and database monitoring, plus virtual environment monitoring, in a reliable, 24/7, fail-safe and easy-to-use hosted solution. In addition to PRTG's template set of monitoring tools, ControlPoint also integrates seamlessly with Professional Service Automation (PSA) tools, allowing MSP users to create alerts specific to their needs for monitoring and managing customer networks.

"As a longtime user of PRTG, we've experienced the flexibility, depth and breadth of the product for ourselves in managing networks for our own clients. PRTG has proven to be one of the most stable network monitoring products on the planet today, far surpassing the competition," said Neil Hawkins, partner at LANAIR. "Now, we've worked closely with the Paessler team to develop this hosted system that offers these unique features, functionality, ease of use and affordability in a turnkey solution to channel partners."

LANAIR will provide ControlPoint exclusively to channel partners, to assist them in growing recurring revenue with a robust network monitoring platform. The LANAIR and Paessler teams will work together to rapidly deploy new features and upgrades for ControlPoint as the underlying PRTG platform grows and evolves.

"We've worked diligently to develop the most robust, intuitive and comprehensive network monitoring solution on the market today, offering the best user experience and a unique all-in licensing model that meets the budgetary needs of every size business," said Paessler Founder Dirk Paessler. "Collaborating with best-of-breed partners like LANAIR allows us to extend our reach, providing an increasingly comprehensive solution to a much broader market segment, while maintaining focus on our core competency: providing the absolute best network monitoring solution available."
