What happened in the Network Computing Awards of 2018?

The 2018 Champions were crowned in an evening ceremony on 22nd March. Former cricketer, Graham Cowdrey, was Master of Ceremonies. He was assisted in presenting by Comedian, Patrick Monahan, as well as by Ray Smyth and Dave Bonner of Network Computing.

The Bench Tested Product of the Year category is open to all solutions that have been reviewed for Network Computing in the year leading up to the Awards. It is one of the few categories in which the winner is chosen by a judge. NetScout made history in this category when, for the first time, the judge (Ray Smyth, Editor of Network Computing) was so equally impressed by TWO of the company's products that he made them joint winners.

In the voting categories, Sudlows enjoyed its first taste of being a finalist as it won the Data Centre Product of the Year. The company's Technical Director, Andy Hirst, won the Inspiration Award. Another newcomer, Natterbox, scooped both the Cloud Telephony Product of the Year and the Software Product of the Year. Q Associates were first-time winners in the competitive Reseller of the Year category. Nuvias also held off fierce competition to retain its Distributor of the Year crown. The company also won the biggest prize of all as it was voted Company of the Year.
