Mar 23, 2020

FOXBOROUGH, MA, March 3, 2020 – Thrive, a premier provider of NextGen Managed Services, proudly announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Thrive to its 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Thrive has been named to the MSP 500.

This popular list identifies North American solution providers that deliver operational efficiencies, IT system improvements, and a higher rate of return on investments for their customers. These accomplished MSPs work tirelessly to guide their customers and create solutions for complex IT issues. This annual list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250 who are focused primarily on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, large data center-focused on- and off-premises, and the Managed Security 100 made up of off-premises-focused, cloud-based IT security services.

Thrive made strides in the MSP space in 2019, most significantly marked by the expansion of our offices and data centers from the Northeast into the Mid-Atlantic. The consultative approach that Thrive takes with each client means delivering unique and comprehensive NextGen solutions that keep businesses operating at peak efficiency while remaining secure.

“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.”

“We’re proud that CRN continues to recognize our services. The demand for NextGen Cloud and security continues to grow rapidly and we’re well equipped with the highest levels of security, technical expertise and industry leading customer service for our clients.” stated Rob Stephenson, Thrive CEO.
