Managed service provider distinguished as MSP Pioneer, focusing on small-to-medium business (SMB) market

CHICAGO, Feb. 18, 2020 – Xamin, a leading provider of managed IT services for highly regulated and reputation-sensitive companies, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company has recognized Xamin on its 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category.

In today’s constantly evolving business and technology environments, MSPs play a critical role in helping companies leverage new technologies without losing focus of their key business goals. CRN’s MSP 500 honors forward-thinking providers that are partnering with their clients to create solutions for complex business challenges, deliver operational efficiencies and system improvements and advance the IT channel landscape in North America.

The list is divided into three categories including the MSP Pioneer 250, which recognizes companies focused on the small-to-medium business (SMB) market; the MSP Elite 150, which recognizes large data center-focused MSPs both on- and off-premises; and the Managed Security 100, which recognizes MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based IT security services.

Xamin was honored as an MSP Pioneer for its innovative approach to managed services. Additionally, the company was recognized for supporting customers through improved operational efficiencies and systems and maximizing return on investments. The company was recognized in the areas of asset management, managed security, backup and disaster recovery, mobile device management, patch management, remote monitoring and vendor management.

“MSPs are the critical bridge for customers looking to assess, implement and migrate their IT and cloud solutions to drive efficiencies, lower costs and secure your environment,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of our team at The Channel Company, I want to congratulate the accomplished companies on CRN’s 2020 MSP 500 list and thank them for their commitment to finding innovative solutions that move the IT channel forward.”

“As a constantly evolving company that takes a consultative, white glove approach to technology, we are excited to be recognized as an industry-leading managed service provider,” said Jonathan Smith, President and CEO of Xamin. “We are honored to be recognized on the 2020 MSP 500 list for the MSP Pioneer 250 category. We have seen great success helping highly regulated and reputation-sensitive companies expand their company’s business goals by partnering with their IT department or director, and we plan to continue developing technology roadmaps for our clients to help achieve their goals.”
