Secure Designs Recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as One of the Most Innovative MSPs

GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) - Secure Designs, Inc., a provider of world class managed Internet security to small and medium-sized businesses, today announced that they have been recognized by Everything Channel's CRN Magazine as one of the Most Innovative MSPs. This first annual list highlights companies that have found success offering managed solutions to customers, helping them more efficient and reduce costs. CRN felt it was important to focus on these MSPs as reports indicate that the vast majority of small and medium-sized businesses in the United States do not currently have a managed solution, but many are exploring the technology to help drive innovation within their organizations.

Secure Designs was chosen for the award based on its ability to deliver enterprise-class managed Internet security to companies of all sizes. Everything Channel's CRN Magazine notes, "Among its offerings, Secure Designs' e-mail delivered Strategic Management Reports turn a customer's Internet pipe into a complete management information system that can pay for itself in increased employee productivity."

"VARs are beginning to find success in offering managed solutions to their customers. We are recognizing the most innovative MSPs who are ahead of the curve and will help drive these types of services to small and midsize companies. This is a first step toward moving customers toward a recurring bill for services, a strategy that sets them up nicely for more advanced cloud offerings," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. 

Larry Cecchini, Chief Operating Officer at Secure Designs, said, "We are very pleased to receive this award from Everything Channel's CRN Magazine. It recognizes our ongoing efforts to bring the best in managed security services to the broadest customer base, regardless of size. SDI has worked for years to develop affordable, easily-deployed managed security services offerings that are a great strategic fit for our micro SMB customers, giving them peace of mind about current and future security and allowing them to compete at the same level as larger organizations."

"We continually introduce new services and technologies to keep our customers secure, compliant and productive," added Ron Culler, Chief Technology Officer at Secure Designs. "Our proprietary tools and technologies allow us to manage thousands of firewalls in 33 US states and five countries internationally, while still delivering unmatched personal service and customized solutions. The award is a gratifying recognition of our commitment to staying at the forefront of our market."

A special feature of the Top MSPs is in the August issue of CRN Magazine and expanded coverage will be featured online at www.crn.com.
