Axcient, a provider of data backup, business continuity and
disaster recovery services for managed service providers and
their small and midsize business customers, announced a partnership and
product integration with PacketTrap, a division of Quest Software, and
a provider of remote monitoring and management solutions built for

management, monitoring and tracking of all Axcient backup, continuity
and recovery events, including alerts, notifications and status
reports, to the centralized PacketTrap MSP remote monitoring console.

DVP of product management for Quest Software. "We have heard the
increasing demand from MSPs for an easy-to-manage, reliable backup and
recovery service and feel that the combination of the PacketTrap MSP
remote management and monitoring platform with Axcient's total data
protection and business continuity service offers MSPs the solution
they've been looking for."

growth of data in SMB environments, managed service providers are

protection, functionality, ease of use and uptime to best serve their
clients, and the PacketTrap integration gives them the flexibility to
manage their Axcient backup service through the same interface they use
to monitor and manage the rest of their clients' network," Moore said.
"Axcient partners are excited about the high-value RMM integration
between Axcient and PacketTrap."
