Less than two weeks after SolarWinds completed the acquisition of remote monitoring and management (RMM) software provider N-able, Amsterdam-based AVG Technologies N.V. has entered into an agreement to acquire, subject to closing, the business of LPI Level Platforms Inc., an N-able competitor located in Ottawa, Canada.
Level Platforms' cloud-based RMM tool, Managed Workplace, provides visibility and unified management of the entire IT infrastructure, including devices, applications, networks, and cloud. Managed Workplace will be added to AVG CloudCare, which offers VARs and MSPs a free, cloud-based administrative platform for remotely deploying and managing their clients' security with AVG anti-virus.
