CRN Names the ioSafe 1513+ a 2014 Product of the Year

AUBURN, Calif., December 8, 2014 -- ioSafe announced today that the CRN Test Center named its 1513+ NAS/RAID a 2014 Product of the Year. Recognized companies represent best-in-breed technological innovation backed by a supportive channel partner program.

Throughout the year, the CRN Test Center conducts in-depth reviews on an extensive array of products across a wide range of categories. CRN's annual Product of the Year awards are selected by editors from each relevant product group. This year's highlighted award categories include cloud, components, data center, desktops, displays, enterprise software, laptops, mobile, networking, office equipment, rugged, storage and wearable technology. Products are recognized for a number of factors including quality, uniqueness of features, ease of setup and use, ability to increase worker productivity and reduce cost and complexity for solution providers, IT departments and end users.

"Technical excellence in products that have the ability to drive sales and create an immediate and long-lasting impact on a solution provider's business, backed by a technology vendor that understands and supports the channel, is a winning combination deserving recognition," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We salute our Products of the Year honorees for their determination to create products that provide real value and their desire to support the channel as their go-to-market strategy."

"We're pleased that CRN has recognized our unique solutions which provide businesses with an unparalleled level of flexibility and physical security for onsite data: network attached storage + fireproof/waterproof design + best-in-class data recovery options," said Ray Robidoux, ioSafe VP of Sales. "The 1513+ provides a 5, 10 or 15 drive solution that enables organizations of all sizes to better protect their data."
