CentraStage, Panda Security: Global MSP, Cloud Partnership?
Something is brewing between CentraStage and Panda Security. Indeed, Panda Cloud Systems Management apparently leverages CentraStage's cloud-based RMM (remote monitoring and management) platform, MSPmentor has heard. The upshot for MSPs: Panda appears poised to push into the RMM market, while CentraStage potentially gains international reach.
MSPmentor has sent emails to CentraStage and Panda seeking comment but it's the evening hear in the U.S. and we have not heard back from either company. Still, we're confident in our sources and it sounds like the Panda-CentraStage relationship is for real.
Ironically, Panda also has an OEM relationship with N-able Technologies — another RMM software provider — but it sounds like that relationship is winding down while N-able continues to work with a variety of OEM partners.
CentraStage, meanwhile, is an up-and-coming RMM provider based in Europe. The company use Amazon Web Services as a cloud provider to push into North America. And the Panda relationship could help CentraStage to expand further internationally, MSPmentor has heard.
Also of interest: The Panda-CentraStage relationship could also compete pretty aggressively against GFI Software — which offers multiple MSP-oriented tools — particularly in the European market.
Of course, the CentraStage-Panda relationship faces plenty of challenges and entrenched competition. But we're curious to see just how aggressively Panda pushes into the RMM market — with an assist from CentraStage.
