Aspire Technology Partners, a technology consulting company specializing in powering business transformation, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Aspire to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Managed 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 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-premise and off-premise 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 and security analysts, Aspire delivers a full suite of platform-based managed services including: Security Management; Comprehensive Infrastructure Management; Lifecycle Services – Vendor Contract Management; Managed Cloud Services; and Managed Collaboration Services.
“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP 500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”
“We’re grateful to CRN for recognizing Aspire’s innovative platform-based managed services,” said John C. Harris, President & CEO of Aspire. “Our unique VIGILENS interactive platform combines a set of invaluable tools with a broad and rich skill set that goes far beyond just identifying and fixing issues.
