CRN Names Alvarez Technology Group To Its 2021 MSP 500 List
Alvarez Technology Group, Inc. (ATG) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Alvarez Technology Group, 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.
This year, ATG is celebrating its 20th anniversary and two decades of innovation and delivering leading-edge technology solutions, products and services to businesses throughout California. The company embraced the managed services business model early on and has been recognized numerous times for its trailblazing approach to resolving some of the most challenging issues facing its clients. In recent years, as the threat of cybercrime has grown exponentially, ATG has focused on providing safe and secure technology solutions to empower their clients success.
“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.”
“We are humbled and proud to once again be named to this prestigious list,” said Luis Alvarez, President and CEO of ATG. “Our team works hard to keep our clients up and running, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 one of the most challenging years in our history. We responded by developing technology-based solutions to help our clients survive and thrive in this difficult climate, which included our fever screening solution, ATG Thermal Protect, that helped schools, government agencies and private companies keep their doors open safely.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2021 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
