N-able, the planned SolarWinds MSP spinoff, has hired RSA Security vet Mike Adler as its new chief technology and product officer.


N-able’s Mike Adler

Adler will lead N-able’s global technology and product organizations. The SolarWinds MSP spinoff should be complete later this spring.

Adler has more than 20 years of experience in security, mobility and cloud. Before joining N-able, he was RSA‘s chief product officer. There, he was responsible for building the RSA security operations and identity portfolios, and all product operations containing the RSA NetWitness Platform and RSA SecurID.

Before RSA, he was vice president of engineering at Constant Contact, and vice president of engineering at Symantec.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in March.

“I’m looking forward to helping drive N-able’s next phase of growth and to inspire new product enhancements that will most benefit our MSPs and their customers,” Adler said. “There are very few opportunities where you can join a company like N-able that is already set up for growth and also has the ability to invest in its people and technology to continue to move the solutions forward. I’m excited to work with the team on continuing to provide market-leading, MSP purpose-built solutions.”

New DNSFilter Collaboration

Also this week, N-able announced a collaboration with DNSFilter. It will integrate its cloud-based security solution with N-able N-central and RMM. That will provide MSPs with threat protection and content filtering.

N-able will roll out the new capabilities in N-central this spring with RMM following later in the year. They will give MSPs insight into web-based threats from within the N-central or RMM dashboards. They’ll also provide an additional layer of security, as well as greater network visibility and user-based reporting.


N-able’s John Pagliuca

John Pagliuca is president of the SolarWinds MSP spinoff.

“MSPs need to ensure they have a reliable web filtering solution, whether users are on or outside of the corporate network,” he said. “The importance of this has soared rapidly with the rise in remote working and for a lot of organizations, these working conditions are here to stay. We know that SMEs are key targets of malicious advertising, phishing and other harmful sites through DNS-based cyberattacks. And this partnership allows us to provide our partners with a proactive approach to web protection. High volumes of malicious websites are created every day. So the ability to classify and filter sites in real time is a must.”
