GFI MAX, which on 1st October will be renamed MAXfocus (part of LogicNow), has announced the winners of its annual Partner Awards at the MAX 2014 Customer Conference, held at the Mercure Gold Coast Resort 1-2 September 2014.

The MAX Partner of Year was awarded to IT Logic, a Managed Services business formed in 2003 with a large presence in the insurance broking industry. IT Logic's customers' networks are managed exclusively with GFI MAX RemoteManagement and protected with GFI MAX Managed Antivirus, with many clients using other additional products from the GFI MAX portfolio.

Dr. Alistair Forbes, GFI MAX General Manager, announced the winners of the five Partners Awards at MAX 2014 on the Gold Coast.

“The MAX business is growing rapidly across ANZ, and we are fully committed to supporting our partners in the development of their managed services businesses in this market. I was thrilled to be able to announce the Partner awards for the region,” Dr. Forbes said. “IT Logic is a great example of an MSP breaking away from the outdated break/fix model and ensuring it meets the evolving needs of its customers. This means reaching beyond providing technical know-how and support and instead extending its services into the provision of business-focused strategic consultancy. IT Logic has embraced this critical market shift and has benefited enormously from doing so.”

“MAX is now the platform of choice for over 10,000 managed service providers - the world’s largest community of MSPs. It enables MSPs to grow their business by giving them superior technology and capabilities, and gives them a platform to embrace the future of managed services, including advising on current and emerging issues such as mobility, shadow IT and management of disparate networks,” Dr. Forbes said.

“We are thrilled and honoured to be recognised for our successful partnership with GFI MAX and to be awarded MAX Partner of the Year for 2014,” said Sam Estephan, Director at IT Logic.  “MAX’s forward vision and ongoing support has enabled IT Logic to remain at the forefront of the MSP environment, allowing us to grow and develop our business, and in turn deliver the best possible service to our valued customers.”

Over 10,000 managed service providers actively participate in GFI MAX’s global partner community, with hundreds more joining that community each and every month.

“GFI MAX’s development roadmap introduces functional improvements at a much faster rate than any of our competitors. Recent new capabilities that have been integrated into our management platform include Web Protection, cloud services management and our hosted email security solutions,” concluded Dr. Forbes. “These developments make our MSP platform the most comprehensive in the industry, a vital tool for MSPs and IT support companies as they develop their capabilities in line with the rapidly-changing IT needs of modern businesses.”
