CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, announced today that it has named SADA to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 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. The Elite 150 designation recognizes on-premises and off-premises capabilities, weighted toward midmarket and enterprise customers.
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.
The award recognizes SADA’s leadership in empowering midsize and enterprise customers with innovative cloud transformation expertise that include hybrid and multicloud solutions. Chief among these innovations is SADA’s new POWER line of service products, designed to engage customers at any stage of their cloud journey. This marks the fifth time SADA has appeared on the annual MSP 500 list.
“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,” says 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.”
“We’re proud to once again be recognized by CRN for our ongoing commitments to our customers as they achieve their goals to innovate and scale in the cloud,” says SADA CEO Tony Safoian. “This recognition for our managed services is especially meaningful to us this year as it coincides with the enthusiastic reception of our POWER service products line. At SADA, we’re more committed than ever to our customers’ ongoing success.”
