NEW YORK, NY – February 23, 2023 – 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 2023 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Pioneer 250 category. The annual list 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. This marks the 10th consecutive MSP 500 list that Align has been featured on.

The Managed Services Provider sector has risen to the forefront of the post-COVID world as a means for providing IT services to the distributed workforce. The demand for cloud-based managed services has continued to grow, with predictions placing the global spending at $349.3 billion this year, and reaching as high as $757.1 billion by 2030.
