Ricoh USA Named to ChannelE2E's Top 250 Public Cloud MSPs List for 2021

ChannelE2E has named Ricoh USA Inc. to the Top 250 Public Cloud MSPs list for 2021.

The list and research identify and honor the top managed IT service providers (MSPs) that support customers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and more. The research also pinpoints MSPs that increasingly address public cloud security for end customers.

The rankings are based on ChannelE2E's 2021 readership survey combined with the digital media site's global editorial coverage of managed cloud services. The fourth-annual list highlights growing momentum for cloud-focused MSPs and growing investments in managed cloud security services.

"As an integrated services provider and partner, receiving a recognition like this for the second year in a row, is a testament to the value we bring our customers day in and day out," said Bob Lamendola, senior vice president of technology and head of Digital Services Center, Ricoh North America. "We empower digital transformations because we build flexible hybrid cloud and IT services sensing the needs of our customers and continuously adapting to anticipate their future requirements. Innovation requires agility and we're honored to be recognized for our contributions as a top managed IT services provider."
