Auvik leverages Cisco Service API to surface warranty and firmware information for MSPs
WATERLOO, ON / April 9, 2019 — Auvik Networks, a provider of network management software for IT managed services providers (MSPs), is collaborating with Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) to give MSPs greater insight into the performance and health of Cisco network devices.
The integration will bring Auvik partner MSPs greater efficiency by giving them warranty and firmware information about Cisco network equipment directly within Auvik.
“Our MSP partners will no longer need to manually look up the warranty status of a Cisco device or its latest firmware version,” said Auvik Chief Product Officer Alex Hoff. “This information can be critical when making decisions about how to evolve and optimize a client’s network to support their business, and we’re making it much easier for MSPs to access this data.”
In its 2018 report Managing Network Vendor Diversity: The MSP Challenge, Auvik highlighted Cisco as the most commonly deployed vendor on today’s MSP-managed networks. By combining Cisco’s network equipment with Auvik’s unprecedented network insight, MSPs can be confident they have the information they need to effectively manage networks and keep clients connected.
Increasingly, critical business applications and data are moving to the cloud, making networks the gateway to everything businesses need to function. The reliability of a client’s network can significantly impact their productivity and their ability to generate revenue. By taking full responsibility for keeping networks running, MSPs have the opportunity to differentiate their service offering and add a new stream of revenue.
Cisco and Auvik are hosting an in-depth live webinar on April 23, 2019—as well as several joint North American roadshows starting in May—to show MSPs how they can streamline network management by augmenting Auvik with Cisco device details.
