Datto scoops a CRN Award in recognition of growth and innovation
Green Park based Datto, a disaster recovery and backup firm, has been celebrating the win of one of the most coveted technology awards in the UK IT channel sector.
Last week, a team from Datto headed to the Battersea Park Arena and was named the Specialist Vendor of the Year 2016 at the CRN Awards.
The judges revealed the reasons behind Datto’s success in the highly competitive category: "Datto impressed the judges with its entry. It was packed full of relevant statistics and demonstrated its growth story in the channel while showing a very strong understanding of the UK market. The entry also demonstrated why Datto should be considered as a specialist vendor. It was a unanimous decision to make Datto the winner in this category."
Andrew Stuart, Managing Director of Datto EMEA, said of the award, “This is a fantastic recognition of the team’s efforts, especially as we continue to grow and provide new job opportunities within Reading’s technology community. The award also confirms our ability to innovate, and support the success of hundreds of Managed Service Provider (MSP) companies as they help SMEs protect their critical data.”
The CRN award adds to existing accolades the team has gained - in 2015, Datto was “highly commended” by the judges in the Cloud Vendor of the Year category in the CRN Awards; and was named ‘Best Newcomer’ in the Partner Events Category of the CRN Sales & Marketing Awards earlier this year. 2016 is the first year that Datto has scored a top title.
An added bonus was the success of Datto’s Elite Partner, Mirus IT, was crowned SMB Reseller of the Year. Paul Tomlinson, Managing Director of Mirus IT, said of the twin win; ‘'We've had great success because Datto’s products are such a good fit for our customers. This award demonstrates what we already knew; Datto are the best in their field.’
