MSP Challenge

  • GCI needed a solution that could evolve with their over 4,000 clients’ needs and business goals and meet strict SLAs on response times, without being overwhelmed by the complexity of its functions and amount of data generated.


    Barracuda RMM was selected for its ability to:

  • Simplify monitoring capabilities to help relieve GCI’s workload
  • Support GCI’s business model and support the needs of their large customer base
  • Offer broad capabilities, such as reporting, patch management, a built-in site security assessment, and integrated antivirus


GCI is now:

  • Able to monitor many clients from one screen
  • Targeting migration of over 1,000 customers to move onto the platform by year-end, with the remainder to follow
  • Finding cross-sell and upsell opportunities created across the customer base

Barracuda RMM improves overall business offerings to partners

Barracuda RMM enables us to be very proactive, to anticipate and respond to customers’ needs, and continue to strategically plan for their security future.”
