NEW YORK, NY – February 23, 2021 – Align, the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions and Managed IT Services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Align 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.
“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.”
This year, industries have experienced tremendous transformations, specifically around investor due diligence and marketplace regulatory changes. Despite these changes, Align continues to enable businesses of all sizes, whether start up, emerging or enterprise level, to demonstrate a sound operational environment and It infrastructure.
"As the first Managed Service Provider to leverage the public cloud in the alternative investment space, Align has been able to deliver an incredibly secure, cutting-edge platform—all while ensuring an excellent customer experience for our clients,” said Vinod Paul, Chief Operating Officer at Align.
