Tech Elite 250 list recognizes IT solution providers with deep technical expertise and premier certifications

CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named GuidePoint Security to its 2018 Tech Elite 250 list. This annual list honors an exclusive group of North American IT solution providers that have earned the highest number of advanced technical certifications from leading technology suppliers, scaled to their company size.

To compile the annual list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors work together to identify the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the North American IT channel. Companies who have obtained these elite designations— which enable solution providers to deliver premium products, services and customer support—are then selected from a pool of online applicants.

GuidePoint cybersecurity professionals, who make up the majority of our workforce, provide the services, strategies, and solutions necessary to help customers navigate through the risks and threats, which could have devastating consequences. Whether it is helping our customers to maximize older solutions, by implementing untapped security features, or creating brand new offerings, GuidePoint is committed to ensuring our work and solutions result in a safer cyber environment.

“Being named to CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list is no small feat,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “These companies have distinguished themselves with multiple, top-level IT certifications, specializations and partner program designations from the industry’s most prestigious technology providers. Their pursuit of deep expertise and broader skill sets in a wide range of technologies and IT practices demonstrates an impressive commitment to elevating their businesses—and to providing the best possible customer experience.”

“We’re honored to be placed on this list among such highly respected and accomplished organizations,” noted Michael Volk, GuidePoint Security Founder and Managing Partner. “Our dedication to hiring the most accomplished professionals and teaming with a wide range of top level vendors are just some of the reasons we are always be able to offer our clients the very best customized solutions to meet all of their security needs,” Volk added.
