Meet the 2019 ChannelPro Vendors on the Vanguard: Page 2 of 4

They’re our latest selection of software and hardware makers you probably haven’t heard of but definitely should get to know better. By ChannelPro

Verifyoo Ltd.

When distributor Ingram Micro announced a contest last year aimed at recognizing and nurturing B2B tech startups, over 300 competitors applied to participate. Verifyoo was one of just three companies to claim top honors when winners were announced this March.

Headquartered in Israel, the company makes a user authentication solution that issues biometric one-time passwords based on finger gestures even crafty cyberthieves will have trouble imitating. The upshot? Users no longer need to memorize complex passphrases—or write them down on Post-it notes—and channel pros no longer need to spend time on password resets and token management. One hundred percent hosted in the cloud, the system is entirely device agnostic, so users can access it from any device, anywhere. verifyoo.com 

Managed Services

Liongard Inc.

Founded by former MSPs, Liongard has barely been selling Roar, its automated discovery and documentation solution, for a year at this point. Yet the system has caught on fast among MSPs by providing a potent cure for a widely felt headache.

Drawing on a continually expanding library of integrations, Roar automatically collects configuration data about cloud services, network devices, and on-premises software from Amazon Web Services, Cisco Meraki, Microsoft, SonicWall, Sophos, StorageCraft, WatchGuard, and many others. It then consolidates all that information on a centralized multitenant dashboard, and can export it as well to IT Glue’s documentation platform, the ConnectWise Manage PSA solution, or Datto’s Autotask PSA, with more options coming.

A new reporting feature added last November, meanwhile, lets users view statistics about most- and least-active users, when a customer’s subscription-based products are slated to expire, and much more. liongard.com 

ServiceTree

Does the world really need another RMM/PSA platform? Not if it provides the same features as every other system out there. ServiceTree’s recently introduced solution, however, adds new twists to old product categories thanks to built-in automation and orchestration technology. Powered by artificial intelligence, the system automatically optimizes operational efficiency by routing tickets to the people most qualified to handle them, walking technicians through standard resolution procedures, tracking their time, and more.

There’s integrated CRM, project management, invoicing, and knowledge base functionality as well. The total package is a sort of managed services toolset in a box with unusual smarts built in. service-tree.com 

Cloud Computing

Corent Technology Inc.

Turning a plain old on-premises application into a software-as-a-service application is a complex process entailing multiple steps. Corent’s SurPaaS platform is designed to expedite all of them. The system starts by analyzing local workloads and developing detailed migration plans, complete with cost modeling data. Then it migrates the applications into the leading public cloud of your choice, integrates them with performance- and efficiency-boosting platform-as-a-service functionality, and “SaaSifies” them, within a few days and without reengineering. Ongoing management and metering tools are available as well. corenttech.com

Refactr Inc.

Thinking about adding a cloud hosting business or other online service practice? Better get busy hiring experienced, expensive architects, coders, and DevOps technicians. Alternatively, you can use Refactr’s Cloud + Security Architect Platform (CSAP). An orchestration, automation, and integration system for public cloud solutions, CSAP is engineered to help businesses unfamiliar with the intricacies of cloud development and hosting stand up, configure, and manage complete Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure environments without assistance from a pricey team of in-house experts. The system lets users automatically monitor and enforce compliance with industry regulatory requirements like HIPAA and GDPR as well. refactr.it
