PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Feb. 12, 2024 – Blue Mantis, a leading digital strategy and services provider delivering managed services, cybersecurity, and cloud solutions, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Blue Mantis to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2024.


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. MSPs play a crucial role in supporting businesses by offering managed services that enhance efficiency, simplify IT solutions, and optimize return on investment.

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.

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.

Blue Mantis was named to CRN’s MSP 500 and the Elite 150 category for the 11th consecutive year based on its extensive and growing managed services portfolio, including on-premises and cloud capabilities, which deliver valuable business outcomes to midmarket and enterprise in a host of vertical industries. The company’s team of certified experts helps customers leverage the cloud with less risk and cost, increase their security posture and achieve positive business outcomes.


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, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”

“Our continued recognition as a member of the CRN MSP 500 Elite 150 list reaffirms Blue Mantis’ commitment to excellence,” said Josh Dinneen, CEO of Blue Mantis. “Looking ahead in 2024, we’re continuing to strategically expand our managed services in cybersecurity, cloud, modern workspace, and data center modernization – four key areas perfectly aligned with the critical priorities of the enterprises we serve. This approach positions us for continued success and will empower us to continue to deliver for our clients.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2024 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/msp500.
