Among Recent Awards: IT Nation Best in Show and Biggest Buzz, SMB Nation Hot Shot, SF Beta People’s Choice and CRN Top 100 Executives of 2012
Mountain View, Calif. (November 28, 2012) – Axcient, the leading cloud platform for eliminating business downtime and data loss, continues to earn top industry accolades, with an additional five awards announced today.
Axcient brought home IT Nation’s most prestigious award, Best in Show, after Axcient CEO Justin Moore presented at ConnectWise’s annual IT Nation conference in Orlando, Florida, earlier this month. More than 1,600 IT professionals attended the show and voted; Axcient also received the Biggest Buzz award.
Also, in the November issue of CRN, CEO Justin Moore was named one of CRN’s Top 100 Executives of 2012 in the Top 25 Disruptors category. Under Moore’s leadership, Axcient sales have grown 2,462% in the past three years, ranking Axcient as the 7th fastest growing company in Silicon Valley and as an Inc. 500 company. CRN’s Top 100 Executives list was based on nominations from solution providers, who ranked executives based on channel influence, effectiveness and visibility, along with business and sales impact.
In addition, Axcient won the People’s Choice Award from attendees of the Cloud and Infrastructure event hosted by SF Beta on November 15. This event combined live demos and interactive competition with an audience of leading San Francisco Bay Area technology influencers, hackers and entrepreneurs.
Last month, Axcient was named the backup and disaster recovery (BDR) category winner in SMB Nation’s 1st Annual Hot Shot Awards, which recognizes the positive impact that Axcient has made for VARs, MSPs and IT consultants in the SMB IT space. Winners were announced during SMB Nation’s Fall Conference in Las Vegas.
