Expanded offering from Continuum will leverage LogMeIn Rescue for remote support of both desktop and mobile devices
BOSTON – Continuum, a leading provider of remote monitoring and management (RMM) and business continuity solutions, and LogMeIn, Inc. (NASDAQ: LOGM), a provider of essential cloud services, today announced a deal that will bring on-demand remote support for smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs to Continuum’s RMM platform.

“LogMeIn is the preferred choice for remote support technology among our partners, and we are excited to offer this proven solution, which rounds out our remote access capabilities,” said Dee Zepf, vice president of product management and technical services at Continuum. “Given the expanding needs of today’s mobile workforce, we are especially pleased to offer Rescue support for both desktop and mobile devices to our partners.
“Continuum’s RMM offering and LogMeIn’s remote access and remote support products continue to provide a winning combination for MSPs seeking the power of a robust managed services platform and the flexibility of accessing, supporting and managing a variety of devices,” said Seth Shaw, SVP Sales for LogMeIn.
