Auvik, the network monitoring software provider, is buying a pair of companies. The first is Saaslio, which pffers software-as-a-service security and management. The second is Boardgent, a remote device management company.

These snap-ups are part of Auvik’s plans to expand its capabilities overall. They are also designed to aid MSPs and internal IT departments in effectively managing the end-user experience. 

By bringing Saaslio and Boardgent into the fold, Auvik will provide a specific toolset to providers. This includes greater control, visibility and troubleshooting capabilities over the new last mile of the office network.


Auvik’s Marc Stein

“An organization’s ability to be productive is paramount anywhere,” said Marc Morin, founder and CEO of Auvik. “Auvik is working to support distributed-first organizations that need a centralized tool to monitor and manage the modern work environment. Auvik, Saaslio and Boardgent have a similar approach to the market and how we value our clients. We believe that the combination of our deep expertise in network monitoring and management, experienced workforces, proprietary technologies and innovative solutions allows our unified company to deliver the ultimate network monitoring platform.”

Distributed Workforce

Before the pandemic, productivity, collaboration and work typically occurred within the walls of the traditional network. Now, however, the distributed work trend reigns supreme. This, of course, creates unique challenges for IT teams. This shift created a new last mile of the office network located on home networks, 4G & 5G hotspots, and unsecured Wi-Fi. As a result, IT teams find themselves rendered nearly powerless.

Auvik recently acquired MetaGeek to gain its Wi-Fi troubleshooting technologies. With the additions of Saaslio and Boardgent, Auvik will now be able to help IT organizations ensure end-users can remain productive regardless of their location or which applications they are using. Auvik’s product line will also allow IT departments to identify, isolate and resolve issues impacting the end-user experience. This is significant because this is not typically an area covered by traditional endpoint management and RMM tools.

Securing SaaS Systems

Saaslio’s SaaS discovery solution enables IT professionals to uncover, manage and secure SaaS ecosystems. 


Saaslio’s John Harden

“The advent of SaaS productivity apps has enabled the work-from-anywhere trend and lessened reliance on VPN connectivity, further complicating the work IT teams must do to keep end-users productive,” said John Harden, founder, Saaslio. “Now, Saaslio and Auvik will provide IT professionals visibility and centralized control beyond the office firewall and into SaaS applications and issues facing end-users.”

Boardgent’s solution allows IT teams to remotely support end-users and manage endpoints through a web-based interface. The partnership between Auvik and Boardgent will bolster existing endpoint management and troubleshoot issues affecting the end-user experience.


Boardgent’s Ricardo Polo Jaramillo

“Much like Auvik, we want to enable IT pros to quickly resolve any end-user impacting issues,” said Ricardo Polo Jaramillo, CEO, Boardgent. “By joining forces, IT teams can now have the ability to diagnose and resolve end-user experience issues as they arrive, no matter where they sit on the new network.”
