San Jose, Calif., February 12, 2024 – ZAG Technical Services (ZAG), an IT consulting firm, specializing in cybersecurity, data analytics, and managed services in the Ag and Food & Beverage industries, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has released its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list and chosen ZAG for its 2024 MSP Pioneer 250 category.

The MSP 500 list compiled by CRN serves as a comprehensive guide to identifying and recognizing the top Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in North America playing a crucial role in supporting businesses by offering managed services that enhance efficiency, simplify IT solutions, and optimize return on investment. This was ZAG’s sixth year in a row on the MSP 500 and eighth appearance, overall.

“We’re incredibly honored and proud to have earned a spot on CRN’s MSP 500 again,” shared Greg Gatzke, president of ZAG. “Providing consistent value to our clients is a priority, whether SMBs or enterprise agriculture companies.”

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

According to CRN, the MSP 500 list aims to showcase and celebrate MSPs that are driving growth and innovation in the industry. These service providers not only enable businesses to harness complex technologies but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals without stretching financial resources. By categorizing MSPs based on their business models and areas of expertise, the list helps end-users find the right partners to meet their specific needs and challenges in the rapidly evolving technology landscape.

Jennifer Follett, VP of US content and executive editor CRN, The Channel Company, emphasized the significance of managed services for businesses at various scales, stating, “Managed services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability throughout their growth journey. The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market.”
