By: Core BTS | February 14, 2022

Managed services provider earns recognition for third consecutive year.

Core BTS, a leading IT consulting firm and managed services provider, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has selected Core BTS for the 2022 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category.

CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel. This recognition in the Security 100 category demonstrates Core BTS’ commitment to delivering secure and comprehensive solutions that keep client operations running at peak performance.

“This award is evidence of our ability to help organizations effectively optimize capacity, consumption, and cost,” said Paul Lidsky, CEO at Core BTS. “As more organizations look to realize value from the cloud, we are driven to empower them by implementing flexible, secure, and customizable managed service solutions.”

This marks Core BTS’ third consecutive year on the list and positions the MSP as a leader in driving off-premises and cloud-based security services for clients. The MSP 500 List achievement follows Core BTS’ recognition as a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP, as well as two partner of the year awards from Cisco. Core BTS’ recent momentum affirms their commitment to helping clients find innovative ways to transform their business and keep their environment agile, secure, and cost predictable.

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration, and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”
