- New platform will enable easy deployment of IT services, starting with security and data protection
- Norway-based company appoints experienced channel professional to lead UK and international sales activities
ZaveIT has built the world’s first virtualised service platform for IT resellers and managed service providers (MSPs), enabling them to transact digitally and automate the deployment and delivery of any IT service. It already provides access to a range of simple, affordable services, including security and data protection services, and enables service providers to build and deploy their own customised services.
The platform supports e-commerce and end-user self-service, and allows service providers to take a risk-based approach to managing IT services. It supports data classification to ensure assets are treated appropriately and uses machine learning to highlight areas needing attention.
ZaveIT is a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) venture from Fred and Lars Habberstad, entrepreneurial brothers behind several successful Norwegian technology companies. Fred was co-founder and CEO of cyber security specialist Watchcom prior to its 2018 acquisition by Combitech, part of Saab. Lars was previously co-founder and CEO of Purity IT, a cloud storage company acquired by Dustin Group in 2017.
The company has hired Andy Palmer, a business leader with extensive channel experience from global corporations and fast-growth startups, to lead its activities outside the Nordic countries. Andy was previously International Sales VP at Exagrid Systems, where he built an international sales and support organisation and initiated channel partnerships across EMEA and Asia Pacific. He also served in leadership roles at Foundry Networks and 3Com Corporation.
ZaveIT has already signed-up ten resellers to its platform since its Norwegian launch in July and is in advanced discussions with another 40 service providers. The UK is the company’s first target market outside of Norway.
Lars Habberstad, CEO at ZaveIT, comments: “We are thrilled to make ZaveIT available to service providers in the UK and to appoint Andy to lead our international expansion efforts. We developed our platform to help service providers of all sizes compete more effectively, provide competitive offerings and reduce time on repetitive, manual tasks. We are making great progress in Norway and are excited to start our global journey in the UK, an innovative IT market that Andy knows well.”
Andy Palmer comments: “The way security, data protection and other IT services are sold and delivered has changed dramatically, and ZaveIT allows resellers to adapt to this reality and become strong, successful MSPs. ZaveIT has the potential to transform the channel, enabling service providers to delight customers, create new revenue streams and drive efficiencies with minimum impact on their existing businesses.”
