These prestigious global awards recognize information technology and cyber security vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of technology and cyber security.

RING8 brings business agility, resiliency and efficiency to organizations facing data storage and orchestration challenges at petabyte-scale and beyond, across multiple clouds, and core-and-edge environments. RING powers many of the world’s largest data deployments, with more than an exabyte deployed in leading financial institutions, hospitals and genomics research sites, government agencies, media & entertainment companies and leading service providers.  

More than 65 judges from around the world representing a wide spectrum of industry experts participated in the judging process. The IT World Awards are open to information technology and cybersecurity organizations from all over the world and their end-users of products and services.

“We developed RING8 to solve the complexities that come with today’s growing hybrid cloud data trends, driven by edge computing. It’s proven to be a trusted foundation for companies during their digital and cloud transformation journeys because they require a reliable and available data platform for both legacy and new hybrid-cloud workloads. We’re honored by this recognition from Globee Awards, as it further validates our commitment to our customers and their security needs.”
