Rockville, MD – Optimal Networks today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2017 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Pioneer 250. This is the third year Optimal has been recognized in this category. The MSP500 is an annual list which recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: the Elite 150 are largely traditional, enterprise-focused resellers that have a significant managed service offering; the Pioneer 250 have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services; and the all new Managed Security 100 highlights MSSPs/resellers with a significant managed security practice.
“We are grateful to once again be included on this prestigious list,” said Heinan Landa, Optimal Networks’ Founder and CEO. “For 25 years, our team has fine-tuned our service offerings to help augment the business goals of our clients, and we are proud to be recognized for our proactive approach to managed services.”
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
“Managed service providers play an increasingly important role in the day-to-day operations of businesses across North America,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “MSPs help organizations streamline their spending, effectively allocate limited resources, and benefit from advanced expertise in the latest technologies. We congratulate the service providers on CRN’s 2017 MSP500 list, who have continually succeeded in meeting their customers’ changing needs and help them get the most out of their IT investments.”
In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, annually evaluates thousands of companies and identifies the top providers.
