Hauppauge, NY, February 16, 2021 – Custom Computer Specialists, Inc.  (“Custom”) announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Custom Computer Specialists to its 2021 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Security 100 category for the second consecutive year. 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.

Founded in 1979, Custom offers their clients the confidence that they are working with a team that has deep technological experience to protect and maintain their infrastructure. While no amount of technology can secure an environment, it’s important to have a strong foundation which comes from partnering with an experienced MSP who can design, operate and optimize technology.

“We are excited to be named to CRN’s 2021 MSP 500 list in the Security 100 category for the second consecutive year. I’m proud of all that my team has accomplished this year and believe that it is in no small part due to their commitment to the success and security of our clients.”  said Gregory Galdi, President and founder of Custom Computer Specialists. “We like to say that it’s not enough to be happy with your IT, you have to be confident with your IT.  If you’re confident that your IT will work and that your data is safe then we will have done our job.”

“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.”
