Yesterday CNET named Mozy the 2009 CNET Webware 100 winner in the Infrastructure & Storage category. The Webware 100 Award honors the people’s choice in the best sites and services available today.
We thank each Mozy customer who voted for Mozy and helped us win the award. After more than 6,000 nominations for inclusion in the Webware 100, the CNET editors narrowed the nominations to 300 in each category. From this list, web users voted more than 600,000 times to select the top 10 products from each category.
The award points to Mozy’s popularity and leadership in the online backup market. We won the award because of the support of our great customers, and we thank our customers for their enthusiasm.
