JMARK Business Solutions, Inc. has once again been named to exclusive lists of the best-performing and most reliable I.T. service providers in the world. Proving that you don’t need to be the biggest to provide the best service, the Springfield, Missouri-based MSP (managed services provider) takes its place among the most elite I.T. companies in the world for the second year in a row. The company is led by President and CEO Thomas H. Douglas, who himself was recently named by the Springfield Business Journal as the most Trusted Business Advisor in technology, proving that the commitment to excellence in service at JMARK starts at the top.
These honors are researched and compiled by two of the I.T. industry’s leading authorities: Channel Futures (the MSP 501) and MSSP Alert (the Top 200 Managed Security Services Providers). At a time when the bar for entry into selling I.T. support has been lowered, these awards help cut through the static and shine a spotlight on the I.T. providers that are currently raising the bar on the quality and consistency of services being offered.
These lists provide an invaluable service for business leaders looking to outsource their I.T. needs at a time when high-quality, high-performing I.T. security and support is more vital than ever. Historically, business leaders have found it difficult to sort through the noise when evaluating I.T. service providers. It can be an intimidating endeavor to switch support solutions, and similarities between offerings and service descriptions can further complicate matters. The true differentiators between MSPs are caliber of knowledge, customer service, and experience, and the effectiveness of the solutions when put into practice. Lists such as these provide standardized, verifiable, third-party proof of the capabilities and performance of the MSPs that make the cut.
True to its name, the Channel Futures MSP 501 list is focused on I.T. service providers and consultants whose business strategies and services best help their clients anticipate and respond to trends and changes in the fast-evolving ecosystem of information technology. In a statement, the lead of the MSP 501 program noted that MSP 501 recipients are the companies that are defining the managed services sector as we head into the next decade. “The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic I.T. service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” said Kris Blackmon, content director of Channel Partners.
“It is truly an honor to have achieved a spot on the MSP 501 list this year,” said JMARK CEO Thomas Douglas. “I know this would not be possible without our dedicated employees who work tirelessly every day to help our clients improve their business through the strategic use of technology. We are thrilled and very grateful to be recognized by industry leaders for our work.”
In the same statement, Douglas acknowledged the tireless efforts of the JMARK security team that allowed the company to earn a spot on the prestigious MSSP Alert Top 200 Manages Security Services Providers list. “I.T. security is a moving target. You have to stay constantly vigilant to new threats and alert to new technologies. Every change to the status of a company’s I.T. setup has an effect on security. Our team does a phenomenal job of protecting our clients and continuously evolving our strategies to stay on top of every new challenge that comes along. It is highly gratifying to have MSSP Alert acknowledge our success in taking care of our clients.”
The Top 200 MSSP list focuses on managed security service providers that specialize in comprehensive outsourced cybersecurity services. 2019 marks the expansion of the lineup to two-hundred honorees. Previous versions have topped out at one hundred. MSSP Alert attributed the change to the extreme, rapid growth in demand for managed security services worldwide. Amy Katz, CEO of MSSP Alert publisher After Nines Inc., acknowledged this growth in the cybersecurity sector by saying that “The Top 200 list honors the MSSP market’s true pioneers.” MSSP Alert went on to note that an important correlation between the providers on the list is their investment in “next-generation [security] services,” showing that, just as Douglas pointed out above, the “pioneers” become industry leaders by refusing to rest on their laurels.
The consistent recognition of JMARK, year-after-year, by industry watchdogs and analysts like Channel Futures and MSSP Alert demonstrates that the company has taken that message of continual growth and innovation to heart and put it into practice through steadfast discipline and superior execution.
