GuidePoint Security recently made their debut on CRN’s elite 2017 Managed Service Provider 500 (MSP) list in the Managed Security 100 category.

The prestigious annual list is comprised of organizations that have demonstrated excellence in their Managed IT services and North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.

“GuidePoint’s vSOC Managed Security Services have experienced tremendous growth over the past two years and our inclusion on this list validates that the market is taking notice,” noted Justin Morehouse, GuidePoint Security’s Co-founder and Principal.

“We pride ourselves on our World Class customer satisfaction rating and believe that we are truly advancing the industry through our innovative approach to partnering with our customers to achieve their mission,” Morehouse said.

He cited GuidePoint’s exclusive managed services, Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) as one the best examples of the team’s coordinated efforts to level the playing field in terms of providing a customized solution that fits all budgets and organizational sizes, while identifying threats and vulnerabilities and creating a safer cyber environment.

“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”

CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.

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