TAMPA, Fla. February 20, 2018 – IT Authorities, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named IT Authorities to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“IT Authorities is honored to be named in CRN’s Managed Service Provider list again this year. I thank our customers for the opportunity to support the mission critical mission applications that enable their business”, said Phil LaForge, CEO of IT Authorities. “Every IT Authorities’ team member plays an integral part in delivering our Cloud and Application Managed Services and we thank CRN for recognizing IT Authorities so prominently on the CRN MSP 500 list."
