Timonium, MD – February 13, 2023 – 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 2023. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the industry-leading service providers in North America who are driving a new wave of growth and innovation for the channel through forward-thinking approaches to managed services, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.
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.
“Managed services offer a path for businesses of all sizes to remain efficient and flexible as they grow,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2023 MSP 500 list are bringing innovative managed services portfolios to market, helping their customers win by doing more with the IT budgets they have and freeing up resources to focus on mission-critical activities to drive future success.”
“Our clients are not only burdened with the growing incidence and severity of cybercrime but also with new cyber related government regulations and stiffer requirements from cyber liability insurers,” said Erik Nachbahr, Founder & President of Helion Technologies. “To meet these demands and keep their data, finances, and reputations secure, our clients need access to a team of well-trained, certified, and experienced cybersecurity and IT professionals. Outsourcing this function is quickly becoming the only viable option for most in the industry that we serve. We’re honored to be recognized for our ability to provide automobile and heavy truck dealers with the IT and cybersecurity resources that they need to succeed in today’s business environment.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2023 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
