He further emphasized that in an era characterized by pervasive data breaches and cyber threats, Thrive adheres to its mission of delivering the utmost protection for businesses spanning North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region.
Thrive distinguishes itself from its industry peers due to its unique approach, which involves integrating cutting-edge tools, a 24/7 Security Operation Center staffed by vigilant experts, and advanced cybersecurity mesh automation systems, all aimed at enhancing the overall security posture of its clients. The company consistently demonstrates innovation, expertise, and a client-centric approach to streamline all security functions through its state-of-the-art SOAR and ServiceNow platforms, in contrast to the limited, point-in-time solutions many competitors offer.
This year's survey has seen one of the fiercest competitions in its history. Thrive has jumped to the 21st position on the 2023 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings, a significant leap from its 2022 ranking at 50.
The MSP 501 ranking does not exclusively recognize MSPs based on their size and revenue; instead, it assesses organizations by considering criteria such as annual sales, recurring revenue, profit margins, revenue composition, growth, innovation, and the technologies they supported in the preceding year. The study also acknowledges their business acumen, best practices, and the consistent and reliable advice they provide to their customers.
MSPs worldwide regarded 2022 as a significant year, marked by increased investments by SMBs, the integration of cloud computing for hybrid workforce support, automation, AI development, M&A activities, and the elevation of MSPs to trusted business and technology experts in their roles as frontline employees. The providers featured in this list exemplify their commitment to driving progress within the MSP sector and the entire channel, ushering in a new wave of innovation.
Before the MSP 501 Gala, Rob Stephenson participated as a featured expert panelist in two distinguished sessions at the Channel Futures MSP Summit: 'Gaining an Edge in Cybersecurity with AI: A Channel Partners Playbook' and '(Almost) Everything You Need to Know About AI: Tips and Best Practices for Building AI Solutions Customers Actually Need.'
