CRN’s 2022 Products Of The Year
CRN staff compiled the top partner-friendly products that launched over the past year, then turned to solution providers to choose the winners.
Our 2022 Products of the Year awards honor the leading partner-friendly products that launched over the last year as selected by the solution providers who bring these products to customers.
CRN editors selected finalists in 30 technology categories from among products that were launched or updated from September 2021 to September 2022. The categories ranged from mainstay channel products like laptops and multifunction printers to products in newer technology areas such as AI, the Internet of Things, and hyperconverged and hybrid cloud infrastructure.
We then asked solution providers to rate the products based on three subcategories: technology, revenue and profit, and customer need. The survey received more than 5,000 product ratings from solution providers, and the product with the highest overall score in each category was named the winner.
Notably, a number of companies received top prizes in multiple product categories this year, including Cisco Systems, Palo Alto Networks and SentinelOne (two each), Microsoft with three and Hewlett Packard Enterprise with an impressive seven wins (five from the GreenLake portfolio and one each from HPE’s Aruba and Zerto companies).
What follows are the winners, subcategory winners and finalists for 2022.
