iCorps Named a Top Security Solutions Provider by CRN
BOSTON, MA – February 20, 2018 – iCorps Technologies, a leading IT Consulting, Managed Services and Cloud Computing Company, has announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named iCorps Technologies to its 2017 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Managed Security 100 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-premise and off-premise services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
"We're happy that CRN has again recognized us in the Managed Security 100 category because IT security remains a significant focus for us," said Michael Hadley, President & CEO of iCorps Technologies. "Cybercriminals are not slowing down. In fact, ransomware is growing at a rate of 350%. As a solution provider, we are consistently improving our offering and working closely with channel partners like Microsoft to keep up with the threats that are evolving daily. Ultimately, our goal is to help keep our clients stay protected and educated in as many ways as we can."
iCorps Technologies continued to grow its robust security practice in 2017, helping more businesses improve their defense-in-depth strategy. With proactive services such as vulnerability assessments and monitoring, email threat protection, and managed security, iCorps is committed to helping its clients strengthen their security posture by implementing best practices, user education and innovative security technologies such as Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). iCorps has achieved a well-rounded security practice by partnering with vendors leading the security solutions space such as Microsoft, Sophos, SonicWall, Mimecast, Datto, Cygilant and RapidFire, as well as hiring top talent.

"Microsoft's EMS is helping us meet a lot a lot of our clients' needs for identity management and tools such as multi-factor authentication," Hadley said. "But I would say that all of our security partners – combined with the knowledge of our internal experts – allows us to offer comprehensive managed security services for businesses of all sizes."
iCorps also hosted several data security education sessions throughout the Northeast in 2017, providing helpful tips and best practices for proactively combating threats.
“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.”
