For the third year in a row, ADNET has been listed among the world’s best managed service providers (MSPs).

ROCKY HILL, Conn., July 12, 2021ADNET Technologies was again recognized as one of the world’s top managed IT service providers (MSPs) in the 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. Following a transformative year for the IT and cybersecurity industries, ADNET has entered a period of evolution that is fueling its growth. It recently built new collaborative workplaces after permanently adopting a work-from-anywhere environment, and it launched a new independent cybersecurity firm MachBlue Defense. Now, for the third year in a row, ADNET has been placed on the tech industry’s most prominent list of the best MSPs.

“This year, we have reimagined the way we work – launching collaborative workplaces that harness innovation while empowering our team with the flexibility to work wherever they’re most productive. This evolution is essential to our long-term success, but the driving force behind it has been at the heart of our company’s identity since its inception – our steadfast commitment to the people we serve,” said Christopher Luise, Co-CEO of ADNET Technologies. “We have always put people first. Our team makes managed IT and cloud services easy to understand, and they provide cybersecurity services that make companies safer. This people-first mentality extends to our workplace culture and creating an environment where people can thrive.

“We’re thrilled to again be recognized on the Channel Futures MSP 501 because it demonstrates the ongoing impact of our talented team and people-first approach,” he added.

The MSP 501 identifies the technology industry’s top-performing providers of managed services as selected by the editors of Channel Futures. Each year, MSPs around the globe complete a comprehensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. Managed services providers that qualify for the list must pass a rigorous review conducted by the research team and editors of Channel Futures that rank applicants using a unique methodology that weighs financial performance according to long-term health and viability, commitment to recurring revenue and operational efficiency.

This year’s list attracted a record number of applicants and was one of the most competitive in the survey’s history. Since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking into a vibrant group of innovators focused on high levels of customer satisfaction at small, medium, and large organizations in the public and private sectors. Today, many of their services and technology offerings focus on growing customer needs in the areas of cloud, security, collaboration and support of hybrid workforces.

“The 2021 Channel Futures MSP 501 winners are the highest-performing and most innovative IT providers in the industry today. They stand head and shoulders above the competition,” said Robert DeMarzo, vice president of content for the Channel Futures and Channel Partners Conference & Expo division of Informa Tech Channels. “Coordinated by Channel Futures MSP 501 editor Allison Francis, this year’s list was clearly one of the best ever on record.”

“Vendors that are aligned with the Channel Futures MSP 501 are driving a new wave of innovation in the industry. Through their partnerships they are demonstrating a commitment to moving the MSP and entire channel forward,” said Kelly Danziger, general manager of Informa Tech Channels. “We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the 2021 winners and gratitude to the thousands of MSPs that have contributed to the continuing growth and success of the managed services sector.”

The complete 2021 MSP 501 list is available on Channel Futures’ website. The MSP 501 winners will be recognized at the MSP 501 Awards Gala at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo / MSP Summit, Nov. 1-4, in Las Vegas.


The 2021 MSP 501 list is based on confidential data collected and analyzed by the Channel Futures editorial and research teams. Data was collected online from March 1-May 24, 2021. The MSP 501 list recognizes top managed service providers based on metrics including recurring revenue, profit margin and other factors.
