Agio Named to CRN’s Elite 150

Agio Recognized for Forward-Thinking Approach to Meeting the Needs of Today’s IT Channel.

New York, NY – February 20, 2014 – Agio, today announced it has been named to CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Elite 150. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services. In today’s world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.

This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.” “Our pulse on the industry landscape continues to inform our strategic, progressive service model. With offerings like Agio’s integrated IT Security platform, among others, we’ve continued to outpace the market, providing superior service to our clients so they remain ahead of the curve,” said Bart R. McDonough, Founder and CEO of Agio.
