Lubbock, Texas, February 12, 2024 — CTSI, a Texas based IT Solutions provider, announced
today that CRN ® , a brand of The Channel Company, has named CTSI to its Managed Service
Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category for 2024.
The MSP 500 list compiled by CRN serves as a comprehensive guide to identifying and
recognizing the top Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in North America. MSPs play a crucial
role in supporting businesses by offering managed services that enhance efficiency, simplify IT
solutions, and optimize return on investment.
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.
The MSP 500 list aims to showcase and celebrate MSPs that are driving growth and innovation
in the industry. These service providers not only enable businesses to harness complex
technologies but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals without
stretching financial resources. By categorizing MSPs based on their business models and areas
of expertise, the list helps end-users find the right partners to meet their specific needs and
challenges in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.
Jennifer Follett, VP of US Content and executive Editor CRN, The Channel Company, emphasized
the significance of managed services for businesses at various scales, stating, “Managed
services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability
throughout their growth journey. The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are
introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to
achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources
strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”
“We are honored and excited to be ranked among North America’s Leading MSPs,” said
Michael Vaught, Chief Revenue Officer at CTSI. “Over the last thirty-nine years, CTSI has
continued to adapt and evolve to the ever-changing demands of the IT industry. Every solution
