Dataprise, a leading strategic IT managed service provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Dataprise to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2022. This marks the ninth consecutive year that Dataprise has been named an Elite MSP.
CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.
With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.
The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
Founded in 1995, Dataprise partners with strategic IT leaders to help them be the best at what they do. Dataprise delivers best-in-class managed cybersecurity, disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), managed infrastructure, mobility, and managed end-user services that transform business, enhance user experiences, and eliminate risks.
“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
“Cybersecurity and business continuity, or disaster recovery, are now the top priorities for technology leaders nationwide,” stated Steve Lewis, CEO of Dataprise. “Over the past year, we have created the industry’s leading integrated cybersecurity and disaster recovery as a service, to assure that our clients will have bulletproof business continuity, whether the issue is from Mother Nature or Nation States. Our recognition as an Elite MSP by CRN reflects our commitment to providing best-in-class services tailored to the needs and priorities of strategic IT leaders.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
