“We are incredibly proud for John to win such a coveted award and be recognized for his technology achievements at Talari,” said company president and CEO Emerick Woods in a statement. “He was the chief architect for Talari’s patented adaptive private networking technology, a technology that puts intelligence into the wide area network (WAN) so businesses can maximize their network investments, up-level reliability and successfully deploy business-critical and real-time applications, such as cloud-based services, mobility, VDI and unified communications, VoIP, etc.”
RapidFire: IT assessment tool provider RapidFire Tools was also the recipient of an award, with the company being awarded with the “Revenue Generator” award at the GFI MAX US Customer Conference in Florida. RapidFire beat out 32 other vendors for the coveted distinction.
The award marks the second time RapidFire has won a revenue-based award in the past four months, with the company also named “Best Revenue Generator” at the 2014 Vendor Awards competition at Datto Partner Conference in June, according to the company.
“MSPs in the field are the true test of whether a solution is genuinely effective and will deliver real-world ROI for their businesses,” said Mike Mittel, CEO at RapidFire Tools. “Top billing in the revenue generator category is the most coveted win we could hope for, since our objective is to offer tools that increase sales and help our customers grow their practices. As a network assessment innovator, RapidFire Tools will continue to develop its roster of appliances that build income opportunities for IT solution providers.”
SHI International: Identity management provider OneLogin has partnered with SHI to help customers migrate to Microsoft (MSFT) cloud solutions.
