Technium Ranked Among World’s Most Elite 501 Managed Service Providers
June 24, 2019 — Technium has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.
Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.
Channel Futures is pleased to name Technium to the 2019 MSP 501.
“Technium is a hidden gem, because we are unique in terms of technology firms. In 20 years, we continue to have the same mission that drives our company’s focus: to secure networks and protect our customers,” said Michael Joseph, Co-Founder and President of Technium. “Being included on the MSP 501 affirms that Technium is a force within the MSP field. The difference between us and others though, is we focus purely on network and security, while strategically partnering with others in the industry to bring a holistic security program to Technium customers. What you see is what you get with Technium, and that transparency and our partnerships have helped us build 20 year-long customer relationships.”
In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.
“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”
Ten special award winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year September 9-12 in Washington, D.C. Nominations for these special awards, including Digital Innovator of the Year, Executive of the Year and the Newcomer Award, were included in the MSP 501 application, and all candidates were encouraged to submit for them.
In addition to deciding the rankings, the survey drives the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel, released each year at the Channel Partners Evolution conference. The full MSP 501 Report leverages applicant responses, interviews with industry experts and historical data to give a well-rounded picture of the managed services opportunity.

Deciding between keeping IT security tasks in-house or relying on a partner with specialized expertise, can be compared to managing home improvement projects. There are many things you can try to repair using the Do-It-Yourself approach. If everything goes just right, you might save yourself some money, and hopefully, you’ve got time left over to relax. But what if everything goes wrong?
Take a moment and think about your company’s network as your home. In our houses, we go to great length to secure ourselves—doorknob locks, deadbolts, smart locks. Now look at your corporate network, how do you feel about the front door of your network? Does it give you the same sense of security that the front door of your home does? This is why we need network security.
