LAS VEGAS, Aug. 9, 2019 — Four companies that stood out among some 160 exhibitors were recognized as Best of Show winners at ChannelCon 2019, the technology industry’s premier education, networking and partnering event presented annually by CompTIA, the leading trade association for the tech industry.

The award winners were announced here this week on the final day of ChannelCon and its companion technology fair. Winners were determined by the votes of technology solution provider attendees at the conference.

We’re pleased to recognize and congratulate the 2019 Channel Best of Show Award winners.”

Barracuda MSP, a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, won the award for Best Emerging Technology Solution.

CloudOak, a market leader in cloud data management, was named Best Startup at ChannelCon 2019.
