Stronghold Data, a leader in IT services and cyber security, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Stronghold Data to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100. The list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. These services help end users improve operational efficiencies and navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions, while maximizing their return on IT investments.

“It is exciting to see that our team’s continual efforts to provide the highest levels of security and protection for our clients are being nationally recognized among our peers and reputable publications. In addition to our protocols and offerings, our partnerships with CISA and the Department of Homeland Security are valuable resources to help us constantly grow with viable training and robust data security solutions.” said CEO James Richards.

With cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services, MSPs have become an integral part of the success of businesses worldwide. They help empower organizations to leverage complex technologies, keeping a strict focus on their core business without straining their budgets. CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list identifies the market’s key managed services players who are setting themselves apart with best-of-breed solutions that provide the business outcomes customers need.

The 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
