DOWNERS GROVE, IL—February 15, 2022—VAST, a leader in enterprise-level IT services, IT infrastructure, and cloud management services, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named VAST to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list for 2022. CRN’s annual MSP 500 list identifies the leading service providers in North America whose forward-thinking approaches to managed services are changing the landscape of the IT channel, helping end users increase efficiency and simplify IT solutions, while maximizing their return on investment.

With many customers still recovering from the impact of the ongoing pandemic, MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.

“In addition to having to adjust their own business operations to account for the changed conditions during the pandemic, MSPs have also seen increased demand for their managed communications, collaboration and security services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The solution providers on our 2022 MSP 500 list deserve credit for their innovative and game-changing approaches to managed services in these unpredictable times, as well as their ability to optimize operational efficiencies and systems without straining IT budgets.”

“I would like to thank CRN for this recognition and including VAST on their Managed Service Provider 500 List for 2022.  Additionally, I would like to thank all of the VAST Customers who put their confidence in us to help support their mission critical IT resources, applications, and data,” states Bob Swanson, President at VAST. “With the paradigm shifting towards a hybrid cloud model, VAST partners with our customers to execute on sound strategy for management and operations of these more diverse environments.”
