Ensono Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

Ensono announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Ensono to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP 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.

Over the past year, Ensono has proven its hybrid IT leadership through the acquisition of U.K.-based Inframon, a variety of new partnerships and the release of innovative solutions, such as Ensono M.O. As an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner and through its Microsoft Gold Partner status, Ensono demonstrates its expertise in helping clients seamlessly and cost-effectively manage, optimize and transition mission-critical applications to the Azure and AWS platforms. As one of a select number of managed service providers with the expertise from mainframe to cloud, Ensono is uniquely positioned to assist enterprises through every stage of digital transformation, further establishing Ensono as a true hybrid infrastructure provider from mainframe, private cloud and public cloud services on AWS and Azure on a global scale.

“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.”

“Being recognized by CRN as one of the 150 Elite MSPs in North America is a testament to the incredible work from our team, and each member’s dedication to innovation and greatness for our clients,” said Jeff VonDeylen, CEO of Ensono. “We take our role as a partner to countless organizations very seriously, so it’s an honor to appear on this list along with other leaders shaping the future of the industry.”

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at
