ALPHARETTA, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Safe Systems, a national provider of compliance-centric IT support and hosted services for financial institutions, today announced it has been named to the MSP Elite 150 in CRN’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiency, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

Safe Systems’ network management solution, NetComply, is the link between the core provider and other third party services within a financial institution. Through this service, banks and credit unions can build a solution that best suits their needs with varying levels of co- managed IT network support, patch management, and documentation reporting in order to satisfy regulatory compliance, reduce costs and free internal employees from manual and tedious IT maintenance.

“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”

This year, CRN’s MSP500 is broken down into three groups highlighting the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who own and operate their own data centers, providing a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services.

“We are honored to be included among the nation’s top managed services providers,” said Danny Johnston, CEO of Safe Systems. “It has always been our priority to provide financial institutions with sophisticated solutions that meet their evolving needs. Our technology, team of experts and compliance-centric approach has enabled hundreds of institutions nationwide to bridge the IT gap.”
