Safe Systems, a national provider of fully-compliant IT and security services for community banks and credit unions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Safe Systems to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Safe Systems focuses on providing community banks and credit unions with high quality IT, security, and compliance products to better meet the strict demands of the banking industry. The company’s comprehensive solutions enable community financial institutions across the country to maximize their technology investment and remain up to date on the current technologies, security risks, regulatory changes, and FFIEC guidelines.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“At Safe Systems, we are committed to developing innovative technology solutions for community banks and credit unions that help streamline processes and ensure secure and compliant operations for these institutions,” said Darren Bridges, president at Safe Systems. “We are honored to be named again to the CRN MSP Elite 150 list and look forward to expanding our compliance-centric products and services to continue improving our customers’ IT processes and supporting their strategic goals.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
