About Us / Our Services

After Nines Inc. provides strategic technology and business guidance across its IT media sites — including ChannelE2E and MSSP Alert. Co-founded by serial entrepreneurs Amy Katz and Joe Panettieri, we’ve previously launched, built and sold MSPmentor, The VAR Guy and Talkin’ Cloud. We’ve worked in and around the IT industry since the early 1990s. We’ve had our own companies. And we’ve worked for big media — including executive- and senior-level positions at CMP Media, Microcast Communications, NYIT, Penton and Ziff Davis Media. But instead of looking back, we’re focused on the future — your future.

Our Brands


ChannelE2E tracks strategic IT service providers and the five stages of your business journey — from entrepreneur to exit (E2E). We shift the IT channel conversation from tactical chatter to strategic discussions — focusing MSPs and VARs on business development, talent recruitment and management, financial models, marketing, sales and customer engagement. We pinpoint the industry’s top KPIs (key performance indicators) — positioning our community members to maximize their business performance, customer satisfaction and company valuation.


MSSP Alert is the global voice of the Managed Security Service Provider industry. Our exclusive business, technology and cybersecurity content empowers you to build or partner your way toward MSSP success. We address the single most important IT and business issue facing organizations worldwide: How to safeguard customer assets.
