    Huntsville, AL  
    February 12, 2024 — Summit 7 announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Summit 7 to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 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.

    Summit 7 was chosen for this award due to their extensive history helping DoD contractors with cybersecurity and compliance with rigorous government-mandated standards such as the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, or CMMC. They’ve also established themselves as a top Managed Service Provider for the Defense Industrial Base by serving small businesses and prime contractors all across the country for over a decade.

    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."

    “We are truly honored to receive this award,” said Summit 7 CEO Scott Edwards. “It’s a testament to the hard work our team puts in every day to serve our customers and fuel the mission – Protecting the American Dream. We believe that what we do matters, and that attitude of excellence is what gives our team the edge we have.”

    The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2024 issue of CRN and online at
