Plano, TX, March 13, 2019 – Top managed SD-WAN, disaster recovery, UCaaS and voice provider, Magna5, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. The annual list recognizes the most groundbreaking managed service providers in North America. Magna5 specializes in providing proactively monitored and managed IT and network services, including SD-WAN, disaster recovery, UCaaS and voice. Its 24/7/365 continuous monitoring makes it easier for mid-market and enterprise businesses to avoid costly disruption and downtime.
Managed service providers are critical partners for businesses that care about reliability, compliance and security. They deploy complex technologies cost-effectively and then manage everything so companies can focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list singles out managed service organizations that offer approaches with endless potential for growth.
The annual 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-premises, cloud-based security services.
Magna5 was selected due to its well-rounded service offering and proactive approach to managed services. The company delivers cutting-edge networking, IT and voice technology and infrastructure by partnering with leading vendors including VeloCloud, Metaswitch, Commvault and AlienVault. In addition, it also offers year-round, uninterrupted monitoring and support out of its US-based 24/7/365 network operations center. This ensures it can rapidly identify, report and resolve network and device status issues while minimizing the effect on the customer’s day to day operations.
“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,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 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.
“Magna5 is honored to be included in the Elite 150 for this year’s CRN MSP 500 list”, said Rick Lottie, CEO of Magna5. “We pride ourselves on being innovators in the managed services space and delivering always-on availability for our customers.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2019 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
