Marlborough, Mass., December 8, 2020 – ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that the company was honored with three industry awards at the annual SDC Awards, which held a virtual awards show on December 3, 2020.

ExaGrid’s wins at the SDC Awards are in categories that reflect different areas of strength that the Tiered Backup Storage company has become known for. ExaGrid’s Reseller Program was voted “Vendor Channel Program of the Year,” and it won the “Storage Hardware Innovation of the Year” award for its Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature released this year in ExaGrid Software Version 6.0. ExaGrid was further recognized by voters with the “Storage Company of the Year” award.

“We are so honored to win three SDC Awards,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “In particular, we are very pleased that our reseller program received the Vendor Program Channel of the Year award, and thank our partners in the channel for their support. We are very proud of our Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature that was launched earlier this year with our Software Version 6.0 release, so we are extremely grateful that it has been recognized with the Storage Hardware Innovation of the Year award. The crowning achievement is winning the Storage Company of the Year award, which is a huge honor, especially considering the other finalists in the category, who are all leaders in our industry. Thank you to everyone who voted, and congratulations to all of the winners of this year’s awards.”
