CNL PSIM Profile

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Sep 06, 2017

CNL has been one of the strongest advocates for PSIM, as one of the earliest entrants into the market releasing their command and control software before the 'PSIM' term was first coined.

PSIM has not become as big as proponents hoped. However, CNL says they are profitable and things are going well.

CEO and founder Keith Bloodworth spoke with IPVM about the current status of CNL, and the core features of their platform, which they say is used in the largest PSIM deployments in the industry so far.
