Local IT and security firm earns a spot in Channel Features MSP 501 for second year in a row

FARMINGTON, Conn.ADNET Technologies, an IT management and security firm, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers (MSPs) in the prestigious 2020 Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. This is the second year in a row ADNET Technologies has made the list, which ranks MSPs from around the globe.

“We are honored to be included in the highly regarded 2020 Channel Features MSP 501 rankings. To be recognized alongside so many outstanding peer organizations from around the world is something we don’t take lightly,” said Christopher J. Luise, Co-CEO of ADNET Technologies. “This recognition continues to motivate our entire organization to strive for our best and remain a preferred partner for our clients.”

ADNET Technologies takes a human-centered approach to its client engagements, providing technology services across three core areas – Managed IT Services, Security and Cloud – to businesses in several industries.

In order to qualify for the MSP 501 ranking, participants must complete an exhaustive survey and application to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities, and company and customer demographic information. Applicants are ranked on a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to long-term health and viability; commitment to recurring revenue; and operational efficiency.

“These benchmarks are what local businesses should examine when choosing a managed service provider with the experience, skillset, business knowledge, and defined strategy to help them succeed in this fast-changing digital landscape,” says Kris Blackmon, Senior Content Director, Channel Partners, and Channel Futures. “ADNET Technologies stands as a shining example of excellence.”

In the 13 years since its inception, the MSP 501 has evolved from a competitive ranking list into a vibrant group of service providers, vendors, distributors, consultants and industry analysts working together to define the growing managed service opportunity.

ADNET employs 60 people at its offices in Albany, New York, and Farmington, Connecticut.
