Larkspur, CA, February 16, 2022 BLOKWORX, a channel-only master managed security provider dedicated to protecting MSPs and their end clients, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named BLOKWORX to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their 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.

BLOKWORX started off as an MSP 16 years ago before pivoting to focus purely on security in 2016. BLOKWORX President, Rob Boles, recognized an ever-growing need that was impossible for MSPs to fill between tickets, network challenges, and customer requests. BLOKWORX draws on its cybersecurity expertise, armed forces heritage and cutting-edge technologies to protect MSPs’ clients, so they can focus on everything else that pops up when running an IT business.

“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.”

“BLOKWORX is honored to be included among this elite group of MSPs focused on cybersecurity. We know the challenges of running an MSP and the growing cybersecurity threats from multiple vectors makes that even more challenging,” said Boles. “We pride ourselves on taking that cybersecurity burden off our clients allowing them to sleep better at night and focus on growing their businesses.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2022 issue of CRN and online at


Most IT Managed Service Providers can’t keep up with all the security options and threats that come at their clients on their own. BLOKWORX simplifies security solutions and constantly prevents cyber threats before they become catastrophic events so MSPs can protect their clients, reduce their risks and have peace of mind growing their business, with a trusted and proven security partner watching their backs. We Defend. We Protect. You Grow.
