Aspire Technology Partners, a technology consulting and managed services company specializing in powering business transformation, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Aspire to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category. 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 organizations to ensure the availability of enterprise infrastructures, manage risk, and free up IT resources to focus on new initiatives that support desired business outcomes. 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.
Aspire Managed Services, powered by the VIGILENSTM Platform, make managed services an integrated strategic asset for client organizations. VIGILENS establishes visibility across the entire IT infrastructure – serving as a hub for everything from data collection, event correlation, alerting, comprehensive reporting, and new service deployment. Backed by an expert team of infrastructure engineers, security analysts, and incident responders, Aspire delivers a full suite of 24x7x365 managed services including: Managed Security; Managed Infrastructure; Managed Collaboration Services; and Lifecycle Services – Vendor Contract Management.
“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.”
“Our managed security services, and managed services as a whole, continue to grow at a tremendous rate,” said John C. Harris, President and CEO of Aspire. “We’ve built a technology platform complemented by an exceptional operations and delivery team that constantly innovate to meet the evolving needs of the market.
