Press Release: Kelser Corporation Recognized for Continued Excellence in Managed IT Security Services
GLASTONBURY, CT – CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kelser 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.
This is the second straight year that Kelser has been chosen for the Managed Security 100 category and fifth straight year that they’ve been named to the CRN Solution Provider 500 list. Kelser’s comprehensive cybersecurity solution, called Defend Forward, is what leads their cybersecurity efforts. Defend Forward supports Kelser’s clients by protecting their data, networks, and reputation against the numerous cyber threats that modern businesses face.
“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.”
“At Kelser, we're excited to continue growing as an MSP,” said Matt Kozloski, Vice President of Professional Services at Kelser. “Over the last year, we tripled our managed technology services revenue and attribute that to relationships we've developed, having the right people, and using the right software. Organizations can procure technology products and services from anywhere, but there's only one place in the world they can get the talent, dedication, and efficiency of the people and systems we've assembled - that's Kelser.”
