ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ProviDyn, Inc. to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category.
The list, released annually, recognizes the leading North American solution providers that have demonstrated innovative and forward-thinking approaches to managed services. These services help end users improve operational efficiencies and navigate the ongoing complexities of IT solutions, while maximizing their return on IT investments.
With cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services, MSPs have become an integral part of the success of businesses worldwide. They help empower organizations to leverage complex technologies, keeping a strict focus on their core business without straining their budgets.
CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list identifies the market’s key managed services players who are setting themselves apart with best-of-breed solutions that provide the business outcomes customers need.
The MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: 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-premises and cloud-based security services.
According to ProviDyn CEO, Hamish Davidson, “The pandemic shined a light on the deficiencies of many traditional MSPs in the Atlanta area who were caught off guard by the work from home transition. ProviDyn has been cloud-forward and cyber security focused since our inception and not only shined in this virtual setting, but also picked up clients whose MSPs weren’t as nimble and adaptable.”
“Effective MSPs enable companies to focus on their core objectives while improving the quality and reliability of their cloud computing capabilities,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list deserve recognition for their innovative and forward- thinking approaches to managed services, and the ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems to maximize return on investments.”
Solution Advisor Jed Fearon noted, “COVID drove us to conduct more face to face virtual meetings with our team, clients, and prospects. Video and other collaboration tools in Teams have dramatically improved productivity, engagement, and trust - especially with prospects by reducing the “stranger factor. Companies are also getting much more interested in Single-Sign-On (SSO) and Microsoft 365, which is the perfect marriage of enterprise-class cyber security with transformational tech tools.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
