Edge Hosting Recognized by MSP Hosting 100 for Excellence in Managed IT Services


Baltimore, MD – August 9, 2016 – Edge Hosting LLC, an innovative provider of secure, scalable and business-driven managed hosting services, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Edge Hosting to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Hosting 100 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with a superior approach to managed services that reduce the cost and complexity of maintaining a secure, compliant and high performing customer experience.

In today’s fast-paced, often highly regulated 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 MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.

“Our consultative managed services and domain expertise deliver immediate value and ultimately economies-of-scale. In addition, our customers leverage the latest technologies through an optimized and geo-diverse infrastructure,” commented Vlad Friedman, CEO, Edge Hosting. “We continue to fortify our solutions with certifications that best meet today’s ever growing security challenges. We are SSAE16 certified and one of the few managed services companies to receive authorization for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, or FedRAMP, to help government agencies rapidly address the mandate to move to the cloud.”

“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
