Select List Features the Coolest Tech Companies Heating Up the IT Channel

BOSTON – July 22, 2015 – Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands. Continuum was recognized last year as a 2014 CRN Emerging Vendor.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future. We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

In March 2015, Continuum announced Continuity247™, its new fully managed backup and disaster recovery (BDR) platform that allows MSPs to easily manage all clients’ backups from a single pane of glass with remote access to appliances, protected machines and the cloud. Powered by IBM’s Cloud, SoftLayer infrastructure, Continuity247 is a world-class offering that is a game changer for MSPs because every aspect points to greater reliability, flexibility, convenience and better margins. Supported by the company’s Network Operations Center (NOC), Continuity247 minimizes MSPs’ time dealing with BDR, allowing them to focus on business issues, rather than day-to-day IT.

“Continuum continues to provide cutting-edge technology designed specifically for the channel, including data protection and business continuity solutions essential for today,” said Jeanne Hopkins, Senior Vice President & CMO at Continuum. “As a channel-exclusive provider, Continuum is 100 percent committed to the IT channel community. We are delighted to be recognized as an Emerging Vendor for the second year in a row.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at www.crn.com.
