"As a global IT solutions distributor, we've designed our managed services suite including Managed OS, Managed Firewall, Managed Security and Managed Backup to give our partners increased capabilities and the power of choice," states Tim FitzGerald, Vice President of Cloud Services for Avnet Technology Solutions. "True to our  commitment of offering cutting edge resources for our partners, we've made these services available on the new Faction Marketplace – a convenient meet-up portal that increases options and flexibility for solution providers."
