IT Weapons Recognized on CRN’s 2022 MSP 500 List
The award recognizes the top managed service providers in North America, focusing on companies that help improve business efficiency.
Mississauga, Ontario February 14, 2022 - IT Weapons, a division of Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named IT Weapons to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 Category for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end-users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.
"I am pleased that CRN recognized IT Weapons and Konica Minolta in the recent Security 100 portion of the MSP 500 award," said Mario Mottillo, President at Konica Minolta Business Solutions Canada. "Security is at the heart of all our client offerings, whether it be print, managed IT services, or productivity. This recognition is both a testament to our team's dedication and a reminder of the trust our clients have placed in us to keep them safe."
The annual 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- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.
