SANTA CLARA, CA – July 28, 2016 – Console, the enterprise software and interconnection company that is changing the way businesses directly connect to their customers, vendors and partners, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named the company to its 2016 list of Emerging Vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.
The Console platform eliminates the configuration complexity, cost management issues and time investment traditionally associated with Layer 2 and 3 interconnections. With a single click, companies can bypass the public Internet and directly connect to other enterprises, cloud providers and SaaS partners to establish a secure, reliable and cost-effective data transmission solution. Once on their global platform with access to 160 global PoPs, enterprises no longer need to set up multiple direct connects. Instead, all connections are accessible in one location, saving Console customers time and capital to focus on their core business.
“The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016.”
“We are honored to be recognized by CRN as a rising innovator as we continue to build our software interconnection ecosystem,” said Al Burgio, CEO and founder, Console. “At a time when the enterprise is looking to move beyond the imperfections of the public Internet, we have developed a platform that fulfills their needs by offering the enhanced security, performance and reliability of interconnection with a single click. We’re glad to see our platform rewarded for its innovation and ability to truly impact enterprise IT alongside fellow industry game-changers.”
The Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/emergingvendors.
