"The automation within N-able's N-central technology and volume of tribal knowledge captured within its new MSP Technician Runbook is astounding and aligns with the criteria outlined in MSPA's Unified Certification Standard (UCS)," says Weaver. "We are pleased to strengthen our alliance with N-able in 2012, and see great synergy and shared partner value in our business certification and N-able's new MSP Technician Runbook."
