Timonium, MD – February 25, 2022 – Helion Technologies announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Helion to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2022. 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.
“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.”
“The growing prevalence and severity of cybercrime – along with the new FTC Safeguards Rule – is driving our clients to step up their cyber defenses,” said Erik Nachbahr, Founder & President of Helion Technologies. “As our clients discover the difficulties and expense of hiring their own internal cybersecurity expertise, they are looking to MSPs like Helion for help. We’re honored to be recognized for our innovative ability to provide automobile and heavy truck dealers – of any size – the cybersecurity expertise that is required to effectively defend against today’s cyber threat. ”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
