Structured Honored by CRN for Expert IT Engineering Capabilities


Firm named to 2023 Tech Elite 250 for 13th straight year, honing skills in security, infrastructure and cloud.

PORTLAND, Ore. (March 27, 2023) – Structured proudly announced today that it was named to the 2023 Tech Elite 250 list by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company.

This annual list features solution providers of all sizes across the U.S and Canada that have differentiated themselves by achieving the highest level and largest breadth of certifications and specializations from leading technology vendors in infrastructure, cloud, and security.

These solution providers offer critical guidance, leadership, and elite skills in the always-evolving tech sector. The best organizations, like Structured, employ engineering experts who also understand the business ramifications of technology procurement decisions. These professionals quite often are as adept in the boardroom as they are in the data center.

“Information technology has always been about business enablement, but the current necessity to mitigate risk has placed data protection and cyber resilience strategies at the forefront of key business conversations,” said Structured CTO Ty Trabosh. “Regardless of their area of expertise, Structured’s engineers understand how a particular technology fits into a larger business plan and how that technology can improve security and operations across the enterprise.”

“While machine learning and automation continue to make hardware and software tools easier to use, the reality of complicated distributed networks, the prevalence of ransomware, and a major skills shortage in the cybersecurity community makes companies like Structured more valuable than ever,” Trabosh added.

Demand for Structured’s security and regulatory compliance services, such as security controls validation and policy gap analysis, remain high. Many customers also seek out Structured for recommendations and professional services for securing cloud-based applications and workloads, procuring and implementing network management and visibility tools, and improving end-user experience.

Structured’s close partnerships with the tech sector’s leading vendors, as well as its topmost engineering certifications for those technologies, provides customers with confidence they are building secure, scalable and sustainable IT infrastructures that enable business and offer a positive return on investment.

“Engineering excellence has been our hallmark for 30 years,” said Structured President and CEO Ron Fowler. “We will continue to invest heavily in the skills training our engineers need to help customers successfully navigate modern technology and business requirements.”

“CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list features the leading solution providers in the IT channel with the most in-depth technical knowledge, expertise, and certifications for providing the highest level of service for their customers,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “These solution providers have continued to extend their aptitudes and abilities across various technologies and IT practices, demonstrating their commitment and value to their customers.”
