NEW YORK, February 28, 2018 – Abacus Group, a leading provider of hosted IT solutions for alternative investment firms, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Abacus Group to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Managed Security 100 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
Abacus Group was listed as a top provider of cloud-based technology solutions and processes for alternative investment firms. The hosted IT solutions and services offered by Abacus Group help provide an enterprise technology platform specifically designed for the unique needs of the financial services industry.
“Once again we are pleased to be recognized as an industry leader in managed service solutions for our growing list of clients,” said Chris Grandi, CEO of Abacus Group. “In the past year we have expanded our products and services and our client base is growing to one of the largest in the alternative investment management space.

In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: 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-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
