StratITsphere Honored as One of Top Managed Service Providers in North America

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - StratITsphere, a Houston-based technology solutions firm, has been named to Nine Lives Media's 2012 MSPmentor 200 North America Edition, an annual list identifying North America's top 200 managed service providers (MSPs).

"It's a great honor to be recognized like this by our peers who truly understand this dynamic and challenging industry," said Stephen Webster, StratITsphere president and CEO. "I'd like to extend my personal thanks to all the good people who work at StratITsphere who made this happen, and continue to deliver excellence every day."

The MSPmentor 200 North America Edition is based on data from MSPmentor's global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 200 North America Edition recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services revenue growth, revenue per employee, managed services offered and customer devices managed.

StratITsphere was listed at number 147 for its first appearance on the list. The growing technology firm opened its new Tier-IV-design Alpha Data Center in January 2011 in west Houston, and launched its Nimbus line of cloud computing solutions in June. In other industry honors, StratITsphere was named to the 2011 CRN Next-Gen 250 List of groundbreaking technology companies.

"On behalf of Nine Lives Media and MSPmentor, I'd like to congratulate StratITsphere for its leadership position in North America," said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. "In the fiercely competitive IT services market, these MSPs represent the best of the best."

Getting on the list is no easy task, another Nine Lives Media leader said.

"MSPs on this year's North America 200 list lifted their annual recurring revenues 25 percent to $1.05 billion, an impressive feat," said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. "Those MSPs are now managing 4.1 million desktop and mobile devices for customers, up 33 percent from 2010."

MSPmentor is the number one online media destination for managed service providers. It features the industry's top-ranked blog, research, Channel Expert Hour Webcasts and FastChat videos.
