IT and Business Insights for SMB Solution Providers

Best Distributor - Value-Added/Specialized

This brand-new and long-overdue award recognizes smaller distributors with focused expertise. SaaS specialist Excel Micro grabbed the first gold prize, followed by fellow cloud authority Pax8 Inc. The folks at SYNNEX, meanwhile, must be smiling about our inaugural bronze winner. They bought Westcon-Comstor for $830 million in June.

Excel Micro is a distributor of cloud security and compliance solutions including Proofpoint, Reflexion, and Sonian.

Pax8 is a cloud commerce marketplace focused on the delivery of cloud-based solutions to a global network of channel partners and their customers.

Westcon-Comstor (WestconGroup Inc.) is a value-added technology distributor of category-leading solutions in Security, Collaboration, Networking and Data Center.
