Adopt Technologies Makes CRN Pioneer 250

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Feb. 22, 2019)—Phoenix-based Adopt Technologies has been named to's prestigious Pioneer 250 list which is part of the media company’s powerhouse Managed Service Provider 500. This list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose forward-thinking approach to providing managed services is changing the landscape of the information technology channel.

Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses everywhere. They empower companies to implement and operate complex technologies while staying within their budgets and keeping focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth. This annual 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-premises, cloud-based security services.

Adopt was recognized for its average annual growth of thirty-nine percent (39%) year-over-year for the last seven years; an extraordinary feat for a self-funded company. 2019 is expected to deliver a twenty percent (20%) growth, slowing only because of a focus on internal process and improvements.

According to Brett Helgeson, President, CEO & Managing Partner, a significant reason for Adopt’s recognition is the forward-thinking approach it takes to understand trends and how they will impact Arizona businesses. “We see a multi-cloud strategy becoming a tremendous opportunity,” he said, explaining that being able to run and move workloads seamlessly from on-premises, in private clouds and then between public cloud providers is the ultimate goal to ensure optimal redundancy, cost efficiency, and flexibility based on business and compliance needs. Adopt’s recent commitment to cybersecurity includes a six-figure investment in security systems and protocols, and participation on national cybersecurity expertise panels designed to combat an ever-growing increase in malicious actors worldwide.

“The only thing that keeps me up at night is not only how we can protect our clients, but how many small and medium-sized businesses in Arizona have no idea how vulnerable they are. Unfortunately, a very small number of companies can survive a cyber attack, and he warns saying, “it doesn’t matter how small you are or how little of a target you think you are.”

A total of seven Arizona companies placed on the 2019 MSP 500 list (Adopt included) and Adopt is one of three companies in Arizona that placed on the Pioneer 250.

Adopt Technologies is currently focused on ensuring that processes are tightened up to provide a consistently positive experience among its client base which has a current retention rate of about ninety-seven percent (97%).

This award follows on the heels of Adopt recently being named to Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America.

The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2019 issue of CRN and online at For more information about Adopt Technologies, visit
