N-able Cloud Commander: A Game-Changer for MSPs Managing Microsoft Cloud

N-able Cloud Commander: A Game-Changer for MSPs Managing Microsoft Cloud

By Greg Tavarez

The shift toward hybrid work models, where employees split their time between physical offices and remote locations, presents a peculiar challenge for businesses; namely, ensuring their cloud infrastructure can keep pace with evolving needs. As companies expand into new markets and prioritize productivity gains, the ability to scale their cloud operations is important.

In this context, Microsoft Azure stands out as a critical element for businesses around the world. Microsoft Cloud has experienced consistent and rapid growth, demonstrating its ability to support the demands of the hybrid work environment.

This growth is likely fueled by several factors: Microsoft Cloud offers a comprehensive suite of services, from data storage and analytics to application development and collaboration tools. This one-stop-shop approach simplifies cloud adoption for businesses.

Microsoft's focus on security and compliance is particularly attractive in today's data-driven world. Businesses can leverage Azure's robust security features to ensure their information remains protected.

Microsoft's commitment to constant innovation ensures its cloud offerings stay ahead of the curve. By integrating cutting-edge technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning, Azure allows businesses to optimize workflows, gain valuable insights from data and achieve their strategic goals.

We can see why Microsoft Cloud positions itself as a vital tool for businesses navigating this landscape. That said, MSPs were not always able to maximize on the benefits of Microsoft Cloud. Until now.

N-able, a global software company helping IT services providers deliver remote monitoring and management, data protection as-a-service and security solutions, introduced N-able Cloud Commander, built with the vision to enable MSPs to manage, secure, standardize and automate Microsoft 365 users, Azure resources and Intune devices all from a single console. This eliminates the need for MSPs to juggle multiple logins and portals, allowing them to act on client requests faster.

“N-able’s support for Windows 365 will allow MSPs to provide their customers with access to a familiar, secure, and persistent Windows experience managed with other Microsoft services via the Cloud Commander console,” said Deb Dubrow, Group Product Manager, Windows Cloud Experience Team.

Additionally, Cloud Commander enhances security by enabling least privileged access for staff and offering features like monitoring security scores, managing risky users and deploying standardized Intune compliance policies. Streamlined service desk operations include optimizing user onboarding/offboarding, password resets and license changes.

MSPs can also remotely manage devices and monitor subscription costs. This single-pane visibility empowers MSPs to boost their Microsoft cloud efficiency and streamline operations for their SME clients while unlocking potential for increased revenue.

Designed with N-able's Ecoverse vision in mind, Cloud Commander offers value for various stakeholders: IT technical staff benefit from simplified management, faster access to resources and workflow automation. IT business managers can streamline operations, improve efficiency and manage their Microsoft business more profitably.

The icing on the cake? SMEs gain a stronger security posture, improved IT infrastructure and time and cost savings through automated workflows.

“We’re continuing to strengthen our relationship with Microsoft, helping pave the way for businesses to confidently leverage the power of the Microsoft Cloud with efficiency and at scale,” said Mike Adler, Chief Technology and Product Officer at N-able.
