Intelligent Technical Solutions Part of ChannelE2E Top 100 MSPs: 2022
Intelligent Technical Solutions (ITS) is pleased to announce that it ranks among the world's Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs for 2022, according to ChannelE2E, a CyberRisk Alliance resource.
The annual list and research (#MSP100) identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) in healthcare, legal, government, financial services, manufacturing, and additional vertical markets. Moreover, the research affirms that vertical market MSPs have vastly expanded their managed security capabilities.
This year's research revealed several key MSP businesses, security, and market trends. Key takeaways include:
Surging MSP Revenues:
Honorees generated a combined $3.05 billion in vertical market annual recurring revenue (ARR) in 2021, up 42% from $2.14 billion million in 2020. The surge involved extremely strong MSP merger and acquisition (M&A) activity; accelerated demand for cloud & cybersecurity services; and successful MSP pivots amid the continued COVID-19 pandemic.
The most successful vertical market MSPs are zeroing in on healthcare and manufacturing, with a continued strong interest in financial services, and legal and government opportunities.
Managed Security Services:
All of the honorees offer some form of managed security services – particularly backup and disaster recovery (96%), endpoint detection & response (EDR, 88%), and managed detection and response (MDR), 82%). Moreover, the MSPs increasingly focus on emerging areas such as Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM, 49%) and eXtended Detection and Response (XDR, 38%).
The Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs now manage more than 6.1 million users across their customer sites as of 2021, up from 3.1 million in 2020.
Top 10 Strategic Technology Partners:
MSPs consider their top vertical market technology partners to be Microsoft (46%), ConnectWise (18%), Datto (18%), Cisco Systems (15%), Dell Technologies (14%), Ingram Micro (13%), Amazon Web Services (10%), SentinelOne (10%), Fortinet (9%) & Tech Data (7%).
ITS takes pride in this new achievement even though the company is no stranger to sharing the stage with some of the best in the industry. The recent wave of recognition has continued to drive the team to continue delivering exemplary service and effective solutions to their clients.
"ChannelE2E and CyberRisk Alliance congratulate Intelligent Technical Solutions on this honor," said Amy Katz, executive VP and general manager of ChannelE2E, a CyberRisk Alliance resource. "Businesses worldwide increasingly outsource their most critical security, business automation and IT management requirements to the world's Top 100 Vertical Market MSPs."
