ADNET has been named to the list in the Pioneer 250 Category for the Second Consecutive Year

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 Technologies to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category for 2023. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies industry-leading service providers in North America who are driving a new wave of growth and innovation for the channel through forward-thinking approaches to managed services, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

Across the globe, businesses and nonprofits of all sizes have turned to MSPs like ADNET to supply solutions to significant challenges — from helping them address tech talent shortages to helping them implement collaborative technologies for hybrid work environments. MSPs empower organizations to use complex, modern technologies and help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.

The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections:

  • MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on serving small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). 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.
  • MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services
  • Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services

“There is a clear need in the market for more variety in managed services — that’s why we’ve designed our services to meet the diverse and evolving needs of companies across all industries and sizes, from SMBs to global enterprises,” said ADNET CEO Christopher J. Luise. “ADNET empowers our clients to choose the services that work best for them, creating customized solutions that maximize return on investment. By meeting our clients where they are, we learn about their organization and business goals, and then we leverage managed IT services to help them achieve them. We’re passionate about finding the right fit for our clients.”

As an MSP that prioritizes cloud services, ADNET helps its clients migrate their IT infrastructure to the cloud and optimize cloud-based resources. It offers customized cloud solutions that help organizations provide services in new digital channels while strengthening security protocols. ADNET’s client Engagement Managers and technical experts work closely with clients to ensure their IT investments contribute to their business objectives, maximizing ROI and driving value.

“Managed services offer a path for businesses of all sizes to remain efficient and flexible as they grow,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2023 MSP 500 list are bringing innovative managed services portfolios to market, helping their customers win by doing more with the IT budgets they have and freeing up resources to focus on mission-critical activities to drive future success.”

“I’m humbled that we’ve been named to the CRN MSP 500 Pioneer 250 for the second year in a row,” Luise said. “Truly, we owe it to our team, and to our platform New Charter Technologies, for supporting our culture so that we can support clients. Without the talent, skill and dedication of our people and partners, ADNET wouldn’t be the same. We’re a top MSP because of those people, and we’re grateful for them every day.”

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2023 issue of CRN and online at
