LAN Infotech, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named LAN Infotech to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Managed Security 100 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or 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.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based security services.
Over the past year, LAN Infotech has taken an “all in” approach to its security practice, based on the belief that security education is extremely important to our community, prospects and customers.
“Managed service providers have become integral to the success of businesses everywhere, both large and small,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies. The companies on CRN’s 2018 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”
“Over the last few years, we have seen a significant increase in calls from prospects reporting devastating security breaches,” said Michael Goldstein, CEO of LAN Infotech. “Their entire IT system gets locked down by some unethical hacker thousands of miles away because a server or PC wasn’t properly patched. LAN Infotech is fighting back with unique, cloud-based managed security packages that proactively protect our clients. We are proud to be recognized for these efforts; however, the job of fighting hackers is never finished. We plan to expand our security services and continue our ongoing mission of defending customers against malicious attacks.”
The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
