Annual List Features Trailblazing Solution Providers Transforming Business with Emerging Technologies


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL—November 9TH, 2016—CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CloudHesive to its 2016 Next-Gen 250 list. The annual list recognizes standout IT solution providers who have successfully transformed their businesses to meet the demands of emerging technologies, such as cloud computing, unified communications, virtualization, mobility, business analytics and business intelligence. These solution providers—all in business for fewer than 20 years—have adapted to an evolving marketplace with a notable penchant for bringing key technologies to their clients before they become mainstream.

With headquarters Fort Lauderdale, Florida, CloudHesive is the only Florida-based Amazon Web Services Advanced Consulting Partner with a Managed Service Partner (MSP) competency. They are focused on providing cloud consulting, DevOps, Security Operations (SecOps), and 24/7 cloud managed services for the company’s customers.

CloudHesive is a new breed of cloud services provider that facilitates cost-effective, highly scalable, and secure cloud solutions. Their team of experts helps companies deploy mission-critical workloads onto a reliable platform to reduce operating costs, increase productivity and strengthen security. CloudHesive has partnered with some of the most notable cloud infrastructure companies to wrap traditional cloud offerings (public, private or hybrid) with cloud-centric security controls, such as encryption, endpoint security, intrusion detection, vulnerability management, and continuous monitoring throughout the environment lifecycle.

CEO, Jim Walker said, “We utilize a continuous improvement as a service philosophy to encourage customers and team members to continuously improve their cloud ecosystem, process governance and work efficiency. In most cases, we take on the role of a change agent to help improve our customers’ processes, and our team is always working towards the peak optimization of your operating software and workflow.”

“The solution providers on our Next-Gen 250 list are ahead of the curve when it comes to working with emerging technologies and building successful practice areas around them,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These remarkably agile companies—both established enterprises and new ones—were among the first to architect innovative solutions to meet evolving customer needs. We congratulate the honorees named to this exclusive list and look forward to seeing what other innovations they have in store.”
