  • MSP Pioneer 250: Recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and primarily focused on the SMB market. 
  • MSP Elite 150: Recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a potent mix of on- and off-premises services. 
  • Managed Security 100: Recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
