Paessler Wins "Software Vendor of the Year" at the CRN Awards

It all began back in the spring/summer of 2015. I suggested to the team that we had made some fantastic progress with our channel partners over the past year or two and that we should submit an entry for Software Vendor of the Year in the upcoming CRN Channel Awards.

Ever Wondered How Much
Letter Mail You Get During the Year?

We always love to learn about new ways to implement PRTG and have seen quite a lot of great usage scenarios in the past. Naturally, we were really excited when we heard that Andreas Ginther set up a Letter Count Sensor "Smart Post Box" for his private mailbox! It tells him not only when he receives a letter, but also when the mailbox is emptied. This way, he always knows if he needs to start looking for the mailbox keys once he gets home.

New MSP License Available

PRTG Network Monitor now comes with a new license targeted towards MSPs (Managed Service Providers) that makes it a perfect solution for offering "Monitoring as a Service" to your customers: the remote probes. Each license of PRTG from 100 to 5,000 sensors allows you to implement as many probes as you want to on your customers' networks. The probes send the monitoring data to the core server using SSL encryption. With the roles and rights model in PRTG you can even give your customers full access to their monitoring so they can manage it by themselves if they want to. You could also set up your customers' monitoring and deliver the results in reports or on custom maps.

In February this year, our CEO Dirk Paessler shared some words on how to set up a cloud policy before entering the cloud with you. Since then, eight months have passed and you probably rely more on cloud services than ever before. While the backbone of your productivity still lies within a well working network and especially a functioning internet connection to use said cloud services, including them into your favorite monitoring software seems like the next logical step. With this and the next blog article, I want to introduce the new PRTG cloud sensors to you: They will help you to keep track of the most important values of your cloud services.
