Staff Report From Augusta CEO

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

EDTS has earned a place amongst an “exclusive group of North American IT solution providers,” the 2017 CRN Tech Elite 250. The criteria for gaining a place on the list, compiled annually by CRN, include the number and level of advanced technical certifications held by the company.

Technical certifications, provided by leading vendors like Microsoft and VMware, allow IT companies to stay cutting edge. Hiring managed service providers with advanced certifications grants organizations access to top-tier services without shouldering the cost of maintaining the same level of expertise in an internal team. A few vendor certifications are only accessible to IT firms like EDTS.

In addition to Gold Microsoft, Enterprise VMware, and Premier Cisco certifications, the engineers at EDTS also carry standardized technical certifications, including:

  • CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)

  • CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor)

  • CCFP (Certified Cyber Forensics Professional)

  • CompTIA (a family of advanced technical certifications)

“We’re fortunate to have a large staff with dedicated areas of expertise, but it goes a step further than that,” says Charles Johnson, Founder and CEO of EDTS. “Our commitment to our clients’ profitability has made us more than just their IT guys. We’re their trusted partners.”

This is the second time EDTS has been named in CRN’s Tech Elite 250, which has shown an increased focus on network security-related skills in recent years.
