"Our customers and prospects understand the value that collaboration and productivity tools bring to their business, yet the large capital expenditures and the cost of maintaining the solution in house can often halt the deployment of these tools," said Eric LeBow, CEO of Spanlink Communications, in a statement. "As a CEO, I can empathize with this. That's why I’m thrilled to be launching Spanlink Cloud Services in an effort to remove barriers for our customers and empower them with the latest in Cisco technology, bundled up into an affordable, monthly subscription.

"The migration of business-critical applications to the cloud requires business-class service reliability," LeBow continued. "Having already saved our clients more than a million minutes of downtime to date, OnGuard offers a level of confidence that no other Cisco cloud provider can match. OnGuard was built specifically for Cisco collaboration solutions, and businesses both large and midsized rely on it to ensure their business communications solutions are highly available and perform as designed."
