List recognizes elite VARs with deep technical expertise and premier certifications in North America

Force 3 has been named to the CRN Tech Elite 250 list and was recently named an overall winner in the Security category at the world’s leading IT channel event, Everything Channel’s XChange Solution Provider. The Tech Elite 250 serves as the industry’s definitive list of VARs with both deep technical expertise and premier certifications. Force 3 has been recognized as a best-in-class integrator who has invested in technical know-how and earned premier certifications for North American customers.

For the first time, CRN honored six solution providers that have made deep investments in technology certifications combined with unique professional services methodology. One company each was chosen as the leader in areas of Virtualization, Services, Networking, Storage, Editor’s Choice and Force 3 was selected as the Security Elite category winner.

“We are honored to be singled out as the solution provider organization that has demonstrated technical elite status in Security technology practices,” said Rocky Cintron, Force 3 CEO. “Our deep focus on customer success has resulted in dramatic technology breakthroughs for clients.”

CRN Editors worked with solution providers and outside experts to define the most important technical certifications in the market today. By mapping certifications against the key technology opportunities as defined by CRN’s State of the Market and Midmarket studies, the Tech Elite 250 recognizes the elite VARs most committed to helping customers innovate while reducing costs.

"This company, which has won Cisco's Federal Security Partner of the Year for four consecutive years, has invested heavily in its own value sales methodology that has paid off in numerous technology breakthroughs," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director of CRN. " In fact, that value methodology led to the development of an Active Defense Platform security application that is turning the heads of its vendor partners and some of the largest technology integrators in the country."

The CRN Tech Elite 250 and CRN Security Elite Leader recognition is the latest in a series of awards Force 3 has recently received. The company was also recently named Cisco’s Federal Virtualization Partner of the Year at the 2011 Cisco Partner Summit.
