ADNET has been named to the list in the Pioneer 250 Category for the Third 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 2024 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies and recognizes industry-leading service providers in North America who are playing a critical role in supporting small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) by offering managed IT services that increase efficiency, simplify technology solutions and optimize return on investment.

In an ever-evolving technology landscape, ADNET, a New Charter Technologies company, remains steadfast in its dedication to empowering organizations of all sizes to overcome business challenges and seize opportunities. ADNET, recognizing the critical importance of proactive measures, places a strong emphasis on constant vigilance, evolution and the precise management of security policies, behaviors, and services. This holistic approach of aligning managed IT, cloud and cybersecurity solutions with a company’s business goals ensures its clients navigate the dynamic technological terrain with resilience, confidence and solutions that help minimize risk. ADNET’s commitment extends beyond mere adaptation; the company leads organizations through digital transformation securely and successfully.

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

“As the business landscape continues to evolve, the demand for diverse, adaptable and secure managed services remains. ADNET has designed our services to address the ever-changing needs of companies and the market, from small and medium-sized businesses to global enterprises,” said ADNET President Lynette Maffei. “We’re committed to ensuring clients are empowered to match services to their unique needs, offering custom solutions that deliver maximum return on investment. By understanding our clients’ organizations and business objectives, we leverage the strength of managed IT, cloud and cybersecurity services to help them achieve success. Our passion is in discovering the perfect fit for our clients and supporting them on their journey.”

ADNET remains at the forefront of the industry, integrating secure Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions into its service delivery as the company expands and innovates its Managed Cloud Services. The primary objective is to seamlessly integrate AI to enhance and elevate the effectiveness of services, meeting the evolving needs of the market while keeping security top of mind. ADNET’s dedicated team of Engagement Managers and technical experts collaborates closely with clients, ensuring that their IT investments contribute to overarching business objectives. This approach maximizes return on investment and drives business value.

“Managed services provide a route for businesses of all sizes to maintain efficiency and adaptability throughout their growth journey,” said Jennifer Follett, VP of US Content and executive editor of CRN. “The solution providers featured in our 2024 MSP 500 list are introducing cutting-edge managed services portfolios to the market, enabling their clients to achieve success by optimizing their IT budgets. This allows businesses to allocate resources strategically, concentrating on mission-critical tasks that drive future success.”

“I’m truly honored by our third consecutive recognition on the CRN MSP 500 Pioneer 250 list. Our success is a testament to the collective efforts of our exceptional team and the robust foundation provided by our national platform, New Charter Technologies,” said CEO Christopher J. Luise. “Fueled by our culture of empowerment and outstanding client service, the exceptional talent, skills, and unwavering dedication of our people and partners are the driving forces behind ADNET’s standing as a top MSP. Every day, we’re grateful for the outstanding individuals who contribute to our growth and success.”
