MSP501 winner badge12th Annual MSP 501 Identifies Top Forward-Thinking Global MSPs & Leading Trends in Managed Services

St. Louis, MO (June 26, 2019) – SSE has been named one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.

Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Channel Futures is pleased to name SSE to the 2019 MSP 501.

“We are grateful to our client partners who put their faith and trust in SSE’s hands every day to manage and secure their data and networks! And, of course, I am incredibly proud of our amazing team who dedicates themselves to serving our clients and stays disciplined to working within our policies and procedures which ensures the quality of our work.  To be ranked #78 out of 2000+ IT managed service providers around the world is almost beyond belief, but a clear tribute to the team’s focus and hard work!” said SSE President and CEO, Elizabeth Niedringhaus.

SSE’s distinct tech stack is a key differentiator that sets their service offering above the rest. With hyperfocus on cybersecurity and business processes, SSE’s products and services ensure that their clients are covered on every angle, from every type of threat and provide a measurable means to ensure regulatory compliance in the businesses they serve.

In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.

“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”

In addition to deciding the rankings, the survey drives the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel, released each year at the Channel Partners Evolution conference. The full MSP 501 Report leverages applicant responses, interviews with industry experts and historical data to give a well-rounded picture of the managed services opportunity.
