Boston, MA - March 12, 2024 — ECI, the leader in managed services and cybersecurity for the global financial services industry, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2024.

The 2024 MSP 500 list recognizes the top technology providers of 2023 that are driving growth and innovation in the managed services industry. Honorees include service providers that not only enable businesses to harness complex technologies, but also contribute to maintaining a strong focus on core business goals. Since 2018, ECI has been honored as part of the MSP 500 list on behalf of the organization’s commitment to its clients and partners, as well as its dedication to creating cutting-edge managed services and enabling customers to go beyond just keeping the lights on. 

In 2023, ECI made waves in the MSP landscape with the launch of the ECI Large Language Application (ELLA), the first large language model application for the alternative financial market. ELLA’s customizable features enable clients within highly regulated industries like the financial sector to align its use with their specific data and compliance needs, unlocking the ability to responsibly leverage artificial intelligence. Additionally, as a Microsoft Gold Partner, ECI introduced its Copilot Readiness Program to support the preparation and deployment efforts for Microsoft 365 Copilot, helping clients achieve further business acceleration with Microsoft 365’s AI assistant. 

“ECI’s recognition on the CRN MSP 500 list is a testament to the dedication of our employees and partners who strive each day to deliver the innovative products and services that enable our customers to achieve positive business outcomes at scale,” said Jeff Schmidt, CEO of ECI. “We’re honored to be featured for the seventh-consecutive year and look forward to continuing to drive growth and innovation for our customers around the globe.”

The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets.
