Diversified Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

KENILWORTH, NJ—Diversified, an industry leading technology solutions provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Diversified to its 2018 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 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.

The past year was another tremendous year of growth for Diversified, particularly with the strategic acquisitions of CompView and MCW Solutions—a 2017 MSP 500, Elite 150 honoree. These acquisitions have bolstered Diversified’s already strong managed service offerings through increased geographic coverage and the addition of a third Network Operation Center (NOC) in the Mid-Atlantic region. Through its strategically placed NOCs across the country and expanded portfolio of services, Diversified is able to provide valuable technology solutions to its clients like never before.

“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 clients’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”

Diversified Chairman and CEO, Fred D’Alessandro, comments, “It is an honor to be named among the 2018 Managed Service Provider Elite 150. Our dedicated Global Services team works around the clock to provide our clients with exceptional support and client service to help them accomplish their goals and business objectives. I couldn’t be more proud of our team and what they have accomplished.”

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2018 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
