Toronto, ON, March 21st, 2018 – PACE Technical Services announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named PACE Technical Services to its 2018 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 a vital role in how businesses protect themselves against a range of cybersecurity threats. 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.
“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.”
PACE Technical Services takes security seriously and is leading the way against today’s modern threats to businesses. “A firewall and antivirus are no longer enough to protect businesses in today’s world”, says PACE President Michael Sugrue. PACE’s services go beyond basic elements to include system checks, audits, standards alignment, disaster recovery, enhanced threat protection and security education. “We have always taken a 360 degree approach to security and made it a critical element in our service. It’s great to be recognized by CRN for the accomplishments of our staff in this area.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
