The MSPmentor 100 report is based on data from MSPmentor’s global online survey, conducted October-December 2011. The MSPmentor 100 report recognizes top managed service providers based on a range of metrics, including annual managed services growth, managed services offered, and customer devices managed.

“Nine Lives Media and MSPmentor congratulate Acropolis Technology Group for earning this distinguished honor,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “As our expanded survey results reveal, the annual MSPmentor 100 survey attracts MSPs from across the globe. Qualifying for our MSPmentor 100 Global Edition list is a great accomplishment.”

“MSPs on this year’s global 100 list lifted their annual revenues 28 percent to $1.04 billion, an incredible showing considering the economic uncertainty all IT services providers faced,” said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of Nine Lives Media. “Those MSPs are now managing 2.7 million desktop and mobile devices for customers, an incredible jump of 50 percent from 2010.”
