IDS today announced it has been named to The Channel Company’s CRN® Tech Elite 250. This annual list recognizes an elite group of IT solution providers that have invested in the training and education needed to earn the most advanced technical certifications from leading vendors.
In compiling the list, The Channel Company’s research group and CRN editors collaborated to assess the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications—from vendors including Cisco, Citrix, Dell, EMC, HP, IBM, NetApp, Microsoft, VMware and Symantec, among others—have enabled solution providers to deliver an outstanding level of premium products, services and support to their North American customers.

Over half of IDS is comprised of engineers who hold many of the industry’s most prestigious certifications. “At IDS, we view our focus on technical expertise and certifications as a focus on our customers. They rely on us to be constantly evaluating new technologies on their behalf and we take that very seriously,” said Justin Mescher, CTO of IDS. “Our engineering team at IDS is one of the best in the industry and we invest heavily in their education and advancement. Being named to the Tech Elite 250 list is really a testament to each and every one of our IDS engineers.”
