CMI, a specialist in IT security distribution, brokers relationships between solutions manufacturers and Canadian value-added resellers (VARs) and systems integrators (SIs) to help bring innovative security solutions to enterprise and government organizations across Canada.

“We’ve been truly impressed by AccelOps’ differentiation, how elegantly and powerfully both security and performance and availability monitoring have been integrated into a single solution,” stated Ken Lewis, vice president of sales and marketing at CMI. “Not only does the AccelOps platform create new sell-through opportunities for channel partners, but it helps transform them into operationally efficient MSPs and MSSPs offering margin-rich, differentiated services. End-user organizations should take a close look at AccelOps -- especially if they’re replacing their CS-MARS solution -- and at the service providers leveraging AccelOps to deliver managed services.”
