MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Sept. 27, 2016 — / — Axcient, the leader in cloud-based IT resilience and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), announced today that it has been honored with an XCellence Award in the Boardroom Presentation category during The Channel Company’s Midsize Enterprise Summit® (MES) West 2016 Conference. Determined by CIOs and senior IT executives attending the event, the MES XCellence awards highlight the best midmarket products, services, programs and presentations. By winning this award, Axcient continues to demonstrate its commitment to midmarket leadership that results in innovative solutions that accelerate ROI.

“We are excited for the recognition this award delivers to Axcient as an innovator and driver of new midmarket solutions,” said Justin Moore, CEO of Axcient. “The goal of our boardroom presentation was to bring light to the inefficiency associated with legacy on-premises solutions and offer a cost-effective alternative. IT leaders of midsize enterprise are constantly faced with the challenge of delivering the same levels of resilience and availability as a leading enterprise without the staff and budget. Our cloud-based IT resilience solution, Fusion, provides businesses of all sizes with the resilience and agility of the world’s largest enterprises at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.”

Today’s IT leaders face an environment rife with challenges including rising cost and complexity, unpredictability and constant threats of ransomware and cyberattacks. Axcient Fusion enables enterprises to converge infrastructure and workloads like disaster recovery, data protection and dev/test onto a single, consolidated cloud platform. Compared to legacy on-premises solutions, Fusion reduces IT costs by over 80 percent. Captured and delivered in a 20-minute boardroom presentation at this year’s Midsize Enterprise Summit West, Axcient’s platform promotes a proactive and lean approach to IT resilience, adoptable and scalable to meet any organization’s unique set of needs.

“The MES West XCellence Awards recognize IT vendors that understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing the midmarket,” said Lisa MacKenzie, Senior Vice President of Events, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the winning companies for their commitment and innovation to the midmarket and look forward to their continued success.”
