Structured Outstanding Among Secure Managed Services Providers


Firm named to CRN MSP 500 list for seventh straight year, fourth straight year on the Security 100.

PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 22, 2022) – Structured announced today that it was named to the 2022 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company.

CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies leading North American service providers whose adaptive and business-focused approach to delivering managed services helps customers see a greater return on their technology investments, better manage cyber risk, and avoid employee burnout.

MSPs like Structured have become vital to modern business success. They are a stabilizing force in times of great disruption, helping to insulate businesses against staff shortages, skills deficits, supply chain delays, and rising costs for goods and labor.

With its ability to offer automated and cooperative network operations center (NOC) and security operations center (SOC) services, Structured also helps companies combat an ever-increasing range of business-impacting security threats. Structured can even help mitigate spiking cyber insurance rates as its MSP clients are in a better position to demonstrate risk management and regulatory compliance to their insurers.

“Building, managing and staffing an effective NOC as well as a fortified, 24x7x365 SOC is impractical for most companies,” said Ruth Walters, senior managing director of Structured’s cloud practice. “In order to stay focused on business priorities and growth, our customers often choose to outsource some or all of their NOC and SOC processes to Structured.”

“We are glad to be a trusted, around-the-clock resource for our customers and delighted to be recognized as an elite, security-first MSP,” she added.

Structured is a SOC 2 Type 2-compliant MSP, undergoing regular audits and adhering to a rigorous set of standards and meticulous processes to ensure customer assets and data are kept as secure and confidential as possible. Its services include Managed SOC as well as Managed NOC offerings from Tier 1 through Tier 4 for the management and maintenance of hardware, software and subscriptions operating in on-premises datacenters, at the network edge, and in the cloud. 

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”

Indeed, operational efficiency gains and time-to-value are two major benefits clients realize when leveraging Structured’s managed services. Customers who choose Structured often have determined that building in-house NOC and SOC teams poses a very expensive distraction for their business. Instead, they decide to partner with a proven entity, saving time, headaches, and considerable expense – and becoming much more secure and compliant in the process.

“We’ve built a strong, capable, security-minded and process-oriented team as well as a broad portfolio of managed services that can fulfill nearly every business need,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “Whether a customer wants routine maintenance, troubleshooting and alerting across their enterprise, assistance with a specific part of their infrastructure, or requires the full weight of threat detection and response services inherent in managed SOC services, Structured delivers.”
