 Dream-team of MSP veterans validates need for cybersecurity platform purpose-built for MSPs to protect and monetize customer SaaS applications

March 16, 2021 – Wilmington, NC – SaaS Alerts, the cybersecurity company purpose built for MSPs to protect and monetize their customers’ business SaaS applications, announced today that it has closed a round of funding totaling $1.2 Million. Most notably, the round was led by MSP industry veterans including Gary Pica, David Bellini, Adam Slutskin, Paul Cissel, Pete Peterson, Kevin Lancaster, Paul Brady, John Barrows and Michael France.

“The technology landscape has been evolving for a while, but the rate of change has been hastened by the pandemic. Now more than ever, MSPs need to realize the importance of protecting the SaaS applications which they and their customers use daily. Based on this transformation, I feel like SaaS Alerts is the right solution at the right time for the MSP community”, said David Bellini, Co-Founder of Connectwise and CFO for ConnectOn.

“When we started our fundraising efforts, it was important for us to bring in investors who truly understand the MSP industry and how it’s changing. We now feel like we have a dream team of investors who have seen the industry evolve and know exactly where it’s headed. Receiving investment from such an impressive group of MSP veterans is a real endorsement of our vision and mission at SaaS Alerts,” said Jim Lippie, CEO of SaaS Alerts.

SaaS Alerts will use the funding to further its development activities and incorporate many of the additional features being requested by its existing partners, in addition to sales and marketing initiatives. The unified SaaS alerting and monitoring platform is currently processing over two million events per day and growing rapidly to support its expanding list of MSP partners, allowing those MSPs to add more value to their client relationships and to build incremental recurring revenue. 

SaaS Alerts is looking forward to engaging with the nearly 3,000 MSPs anticipated to attend Datto’s upcoming MSP Technology Day on March 18th where the focus is on cyber resiliency.

Threat Protection Vendors: Why MSSPs Have to Ramp Up Efforts Right Now

Written by Kelly Teal of Channel Futures on February 23, 2021

Jim Lippie, CEO of SaaS Alerts (SaaS Alerts’ platform monitors SaaS applications and alerts MSPs to unusual user behavior on Office 365, Google Workspace, Dropbox and more):

“Data is the lifeblood of every company and it all lives in digital forms today. The bad guys want to access this data based on its value, so anything of value needs to be protected. Why do you lock your doors and windows? Because you don’t want people taking your valuables. The same principle applies here.”

PODCAST – SaaS Alerts CEO Jim Lippie chats with Chris Johnson of the MSP 1337 podcast about the future of MSPs providing security services to their clients

The past decade and beyond the MSP has always been about managing the technology infrastructure of their clients.  As the evolution of an MSP has gone from a business model that was largely break-fix has become over time a per-user model.  Our products and services have largely been tied to enabling our clients to do what they do best.  In more recent years it has become increasingly tied to adding protective layers for our client’s employees through products and services ranging from VPNs and 2FA all the way out to policies and procedures. What used to be about protecting the employees from themselves, from bad hardware, bad software, etc. Is now about monitoring what they do, where they go, when they do it, and yes how.  Join me this week with Jim Lippie of SaaS Alerts as we look at the past to better understand the future of MSPs providing security services to their clients.
