ClassLink recognized as a cool vendor in CRN’s top 20 cloud software vendors

Clifton, NJ – February 13, 2018 – ClassLink, the leader in single sign-on, class rostering, and learning resource analytics, was named to CRN’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2018 list. The 8th annual lineup highlights the “best of the best” in cloud infrastructure, platforms, and development, security, storage, and software. The list is broken down into five subcategories within the “cloud” space; cloud security, cloud software, cloud infrastructure, cloud storage, and cloud platforms. ClassLink is recognized as a cool vendor in CRN’s top 20 cloud software category.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.
