ROCKY HILL, Conn., February 15, 2022 — ADNET Technologies, a managed IT services, cloud and cybersecurity provider with offices in the Greater Hartford, Connecticut region and New York’s Capital Region, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ADNET to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2022. As a leading publication for the industry, CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the top service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches are changing the IT landscape, helping end users adopt technology solutions that contribute to workplace culture, support productivity and drive business outcomes.

“The driving force behind our company’s success has been the incredibly talented people who make up our outstanding team. They deserve all the credit for ADNET’s recognition on the CRN MSP 500 List,” said ADNET CEO Christopher Luise. “They go above and beyond to help our clients drive digital transformation and optimize their technology investments, and I’m grateful for their commitment to fostering collaboration and innovation within our own work-from-anywhere environment.

“In today’s tech industry, talent is the key differentiator among firms. That’s why we invest in our people — supporting their development and building a workplace culture that emphasizes opportunity, empowerment and belonging,” Luise added. “We’re excited to keep bringing great people onto our team, as our growth surges ahead.”

Amid the ongoing economic recovery, businesses and nonprofits of all sizes have turned to MSPs like ADNET to provide solutions to significant challenges, such as addressing their tech talent shortages and implementing advanced technologies that drive greater collaboration in hybrid work environments. Engaging an MSP partner can help businesses maintain a strict focus on their core business objectives without straining budgets.

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections:

  • The MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models geared toward managed services and largely focused on serving small and medium-sized businesses. ADNET was recognized in this category — a reflection of the firm’s mix of managed IT, cloud and cybersecurity services for organizations of all sizes. 
  • The MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services.
  • The Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.

This MSP 500 recognition follows a year of investment and evolution for ADNET. In 2021, the firm took significant steps to build a company that attracts and retains top talent, while doubling-down on its human-centered approach to meeting its clients’ technology needs. It opened new collaborative workplaces in Albany and Rocky Hill, empowered its team with greater autonomy in its work-from-anywhere environment and updated its brand identity to align with its modern way of working. ADNET also partnered with New Charter Technologies, joining its national MSP platform and gaining greater access to capital to accelerate its plans for growth in the Northeastern U.S.

ADNET is now pushing ahead with innovation in specialty areas such as cloud technology and cybersecurity, while also pursuing opportunities to acquire complementary technology firms and expand its team of technologists.

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
