Netsurit has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.

Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant's business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Channel Futures is pleased to name Netsurit to the 2019 MSP 501.

"We are really proud to be ranked in the Top 100 MSP’s in the world for the 10th year running. Huge thanks to our people, our clients and our partners that have made this possible," said Orrin Klopper, CEO, Netsurit.

In the 12 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.

“The 2019 MSP 501 winners are the most elite, innovative and strategic IT service providers on the planet, and they stand as a model of excellence in the industry,” says Kris Blackmon, Content Director of Channel Partners and Channel Futures and lead of the MSP 501 program. “As the MSP 501 Community grows, leagues of managed service providers learn from the successes of these winning companies, gaining insight into the best practices, strategies and technologies that elevate an MSP to the level of the 501 winners. Our heartfelt congratulations to the 2019 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of both the 501 and the thriving managed services sector.”

Ten special award winners will be recognised at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at Channel Partners Evolution, held this year from 9-12 September in Washington, DC. Nominations for these special awards, including Digital Innovator of the Year, Executive of the Year and the Newcomer Award, were included in the MSP 501 application, and all candidates were encouraged to submit for them.

In addition to deciding the rankings, the survey drives the creation of an annual in-depth study of business and technology trends in the IT channel, released each year at the Channel Partners Evolution conference. The full MSP 501 Report leverages applicant responses, interviews with industry experts and historical data to give a well-rounded picture of the managed services opportunity.

The complete 2019 MSP 501 list is available at Channel Futures.


The 2019 MSP 501 list is based on data collected by Channel Futures and its sister site, Channel Partners. Data was collected online from 1 March through 31 May 2019. The MSP 501 list recognises top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, growth and other factors.


The Netsurit journey began in 1995 with two university friends, Rian van der Walt and Orrin Klopper.

Orrin’s entrepreneurial career began selling shoes and clothes in hostels while he completed his business degree. Orrin met Rian Van der Walt, Netsurit’s CTO, during this time and they became fast friends. Rian was also running a side business selling computers and engineering calculators during his pursuit of an engineering degree.

Rian quickly recognized Orrin’s sales abilities and encouraged Orrin to begin selling computers and engineering calculators. By the end of 1996, Orrin decided that supporting other entrepreneurs by helping them purchase the right technology solutions for their business was his true calling. In genuine dot-com style, Orrin and Rian soon started a formal business from a back room in their home in 1997. It only took a year before they moved up to providing outsourced IT services and support to small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It was time for a proper office a few years later, and Netsurit was born.
