Leading Technology Reseller/Channel Publication Spotlights Online Tech and Its Secure, Compliant Hosting Services
Ann Arbor, Mich. and Indianapolis, Ind. – March 3, 2015 –Online Tech has been named one of the leading providers of hosting and cloud services for the second consecutive year in CRN’s annual Hosting 100 list. It is part of the magazine’s MSP 500 ratings of the industry’s most innovative companies. The annual list recognizes the leading businesses that are helping IT channel organizations meet the hosting and cloud needs of their customers.
CRN’s editorial staff chose companies for the Hosting 100 list that are providing managed services that are “one innovative step ahead.” They are also “changing the landscape of the IT channel with a forward-thinking approach to providing managed services.”
The publication is recognizing Online Tech for its secure, compliant enterprise hosting services. These include cloud, colocation, offsite backup and disaster recovery. The company is widely recognized as the leader in hosting and cloud services for organizations in regulated industries. Examples include healthcare, financial services, retail, Software as a Service (SaaS) and other fields that must comply with regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI and Safe Harbor.
“CRN is one of the most respected voices in the IT industry, and they put a tremendous amount of work into this annual feature about companies in our space,” said Mike Klein, co-CEO of Online Tech. “Our focus on meeting the needs of organizations with long lists of security and compliance requirements is unwavering. We know that doing so is daunting for most businesses, and that what we offer, and the references and success stories we have to share, are unmatched. This is why our name has become synonymous with security and compliance. It is also why we have earned our place on this list.”
“Many cloud and hosting companies say they provide secure, compliant services,” said Yan Ness, co-CEO of Online Tech. “But there’s a big difference between lip service, and making security and compliance the centerpieces of your organization. CRN recognized us once again because no other cloud and hosting company has made the commitment we have to meeting the needs of this fast-growing segment of customers and the resellers who serve them.
“Annual audits are one of the big things that differentiate the contenders from the pretenders. So too does a providers’ relationship with its auditing firm. Our investment in audits and encouraging feedback sets us apart from those vendors that don’t go through annual audits, and can’t or won’t provide reports of those they do undergo. This is standard practice at Online Tech, and it’s one of the many, many ways that we are a true partner to the resellers and customers we support,” concluded Ness.
