PLANO, Texas, Feb. 25, 2020 – Critical Start has been named to CRN’s MSP 500 list for 2020, in the Security 100 category.
CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants whose forward-thinking approach to providing managed services is changing the landscape of the IT channel. This annual list honors solution providers who bring innovative approaches to managed services, companies who support customers through improved operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.
Critical Start was recognized as a result of the company’s strategic moves, including expanded Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution nationally, the growth of the company’s North American MDR sales team, and new partnerships with SentinelOne, Chronicle BackStory, Microsoft Defender ATP, and Microsoft Azure Sentinel.
This comes after Critical Start‘s recent announcement that the company’s MDR business grew 101% last year compared to the previous fiscal year. This rapid growth is driven by mid-size firms and enterprises looking for help combatting today’s complex and rapidly evolving human and machine-generated security threats. To accommodate the increased business, Critical Start expanded its headquarters by adding nearly 100 new employees and an additional 33,000 square feet of office space.
“Critical Start experienced explosive growth in 2019, which we believe is a direct result of doing the right thing for our customers and attracting the most talented employees in the industry,” said Rob Davis, CEO at Critical Start. “Our platform for MDR services features our Trusted Behavior Registry and MobileSOC applications that make us unique in the value we provide our clients. None of this is possible without our fantastic customers and employees.”
