For the 6th year in a row, MRW Systems is on the 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 List. And this year, we’ve made it into the top 50 out of 501 MSP companies.
What an honor!
If you’re unfamiliar with this list, the MSP 501 is the world’s first and most comprehensive ranking list in IT services.
Not only is this industry ranking survey the first of its kind, but it is basically the Oscars of the IT world. Companies included on this list represent IT’s most innovative and influential market leaders.
And competition is steep! The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 attracted the most applicants submitted since 2017.
But that didn’t stop us! At MRW Systems, we pride ourselves on being proactive. We know how to adapt not only to the changes in the tech community but in the entire world. We strive to find innovative and strategic solutions for our clients.
In 2021, we saw major changes on three fronts: remote work, cybersecurity & compliance.
So, let’s dive into what helped us rank high on the 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 List:
Continued Demand for Remote Work Solutions
In 2020, COVID-19. disrupted the modern workforce.
For the safety of their staff and customers, many companies had to close their office doors. As a result, many companies urgently needed to find remote solutions.
And in 2021, remote work isn’t going away for some businesses.
But to be effective, you need the right remote solutions in place to avoid headaches.
And our team can provide those solutions. Our ability to roll out effective solutions shows that the MRW Systems team is in an elite class. And I believe this ability gave us an edge on the 2021 MSP 501 rankings.
High Demands for Cybersecurity Solutions
Every year cybercriminals get a little bit smarter. So, every year, we, as an MSP, must continue to grow our cybersecurity efforts. This year, MRW Systems also continued to implement robust and innovative cybersecurity solutions.
Our cybersecurity team, NetGarde, has seen growth in solutions, employees, and clients in 2021.
Our ability to manage cybersecurity sets us apart from other MSPs. Many MSPs only cover the bare basics in terms of cybersecurity. But we go above that.
We have the certifications to back it up. Our cybersecurity team is made up of Certified Information Systems Security Professionals, Certified Ethical Hackers, and CompTIA Security Specialists.
There is no doubt that our cybersecurity abilities helped us gain a high ranking on the Channel Futures MSP 501 list.
CMMC Solutions on Demand
In the last year, we saw an increase in compliance needs, specially CMMC.
If you’re unfamiliar with CMMC. It stands for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification. And it is the next stage in the Department of Defense’s (DoD) efforts to secure the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
Under CMMC, contractors and subcontractors must meet security requirements before applying for a DoD bid.
Last November, MRW Systems became an official CMMC Registered Provider Organization (RPO).
As an RPO, it is our job to help our clients with the basic constructs of the CMMC Standard. Our goal is to help our clients prepare for a CMMC assessment.
What sets RPOs apart from other companies claiming to offer CMMC-related services is their certification.
Suppliers can rest assure that an RPO is ethical, prepared, and motivated to meet their CMMC needs. So, when you work with an RPO, you know they’ve had adequate training in CMMC compliance.
Not many MSPs hold the RPO title, which is why, once more, MRW Systems stands out.
But our services aren’t the only standouts.
MRW Systems as a company would be nothing without our employees. They are the best and brightest tech professionals out there.
This award speaks volumes to their service excellence, teamwork, and accountability.
So, team, thank you for your continuous effort.
And to our clients.
The same gratitude goes to our clients. Without them, we would be nothing. So, thank you to all our clients for supporting us with your business and for trusting us with your company, employees, and referrals.
We hope you will continue to do so!
It is always exciting to make it on the MSP 501. And to do it 6 years in a row is outstanding.
I could not be any prouder of our team! Hopefully, we will be back again in 2022.
