Company’s AppFabric Recognized in the 2018 Enterprise Networking Category
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CloudGenix announced today that CRN,® a brand of The Channel Company, has been recognized as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. CloudGenix’s AppFabric took top honors in the Enterprise Networking category.
CloudGenix AppFabric is a revolutionary software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) platform that allows businesses to integrate cloud and SaaS applications, create a secure application-defined fabric across any WAN transport, reduce operational cost and complexity, and dramatically simplify and automate operations. AppFabric operates at the application layer, which is in stark contrast to traditional network-layer devices, allowing IT to implement and enforce top-down policies that align with business goals, rather than a set of esoteric networking rules and protocols.
“CloudGenix has taken the networking world by storm. Several hundreds of businesses and over ten percent of Fortune 100 branches rely on our AppFabric platform every day. We are pleased that CRN has recognized how we have fundamentally changed the way networks are built by providing a secure, application-centric platform that truly aligns business goals with WAN policy, leading to confident cloud adoption, digital transformation, and material improvements in operations through automation,” said Joel Christner, VP of Marketing at CloudGenix.
“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
