How We Helped Amazing Support Achieve Their Place In The 2020 MSP 501 Awards
One of our MSP partners, London-based Amazing Support, has been recognized as a leading global Managed Service Provider, being named in the Channel Futures MSP 501 for 2020. Amazing Support is an IT services company, delivering managed IT support, cyber-security, business continuity, cloud solutions, and IT consultancy to its clients. They’re also Microsoft Silver accredited and a Cyber Essentials certified company.
Brigantia has partnered with Amazing Support for the last three years, and we’re thrilled that our products and services played a part in helping them achieve their most recent success as a leading MSP.
What is the MSP 501?
The MSP 501 is a list of the biggest and most successful Managed Service Providers around the globe. For the last 13 years, Channel Futures, a subsidiary of Informa Tech, has released the MSP 501. MSPs compete for the prestigious award each year by completing an extensive survey and application. Scoring methodology is based largely on weighted annual revenue and recurring annual revenue. Judging is broken down further into categories like contractual recurring managed services, cloud services, and professional services.
Each year, the number of applicants for the MSP 501 grows, and 2020 was “the most competitive in the survey’s history,” according to Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director at Channel Partners and Channel Futures.
How Did Amazing Support Win the Award?
For the 2020 MSP 501, Amazing Support was ranked 341 – one of the top UK-based MSPs in EMEA. For the last 13 years, the company has focused on financial longevity, operational efficiency, a diversified client base, and best-of-breed enterprise IT services to build up a business worthy of an MSP 501 ranking.
Through their partnership with Brigantia, Amazing Support was able to align their business success with the MSP 501’s core benchmarks. Fifty percent of their annual revenue comes from recurring managed services and security. Thirty percent comes from recurring cloud services. These two factors are among the most highly ranked in the MSP 501, allowing Amazing Support to secure a spot on the list.
How Do Brigantia Work with Amazing Support?
Brigantia supply Amazing Support with superior cyber-security solutions, which helps their clients achieve impressive security standards. Amazing Support sought out our cloud email security services, which we provide through Hornetsecurity. We also supply them with our automated compliance platform, CyberSmart, to help their clients achieve the British government’s Cyber Essentials scheme, and a Microsoft 365 monitoring tool, Bluedog Security, to protect users working from home.
With our comprehensive suite of cyber-security products, we’re able to offer Amazing Support a layered security stack that they can take to their client base. We’ve helped them overcome common cyber-security concerns such as ransomware and non-compliance as well as more advanced challenges like social engineering and data leakage incidents.

What Amazing Support Has to Say
David Share, CEO of Amazing Support, credited Brigantia’s services in his company’s success.
“Working with Brigantia has enabled us to leverage IT solutions that ordinarily would be extremely costly on a 1:1 basis, direct with a supplier. However, going through a distributor means that we can benefit from scalable costs [and] highly accessible, advanced IT solutions – together with great customer care.”
Share also attributes Amazing Support’s scores in the MSP 501 judging to the partnership with Brigantia, saying, “Without the partnership with Brigantia, I don’t think we would have achieved such high overall business scores because working directly with them contributed to building and improving on those stable foundations [of our business] within the last three years.”
Brigantia is absolutely delighted about Amazing Support’s success at the 2020 MSP 501 Awards. It is testimony to their continued hard work and dedication to be the most “amazing” IT Managed Service Provider they can be. We thank Amazing Support for trusting in Brigantia to help deliver best-in-class security services to their clients.
