We’ve been shortlisted for 4 ISPA Awards!

Exa Networks nominations for the 2016 ISPA Awards

The team at Exa Networks are very proud to announce that we’ve been shortlisted in four categories at the 2016 ISPA Awards! Run by the Internet Service Providers’ Association to celebrate the best internet services available in the UK, the ISPAs are the most prestigious award of their kind.

We’ve picked up 4 ISPA nominations across the board, and we’ll be giving you a bit of information about why we’re up for nomination in each category. We’ve been nominated for the following ISPA Awards:

Best Shared Hosting Best Dedicated Hosting Best Cloud Product Safety Award

The 2016 ISPA Awards take place on the 7th of July in London’s historic The Brewery, and look set to be a spectacular event.

Why we’ve been nominated for the ISPA Awards

Exa Networks have been a regular finalist at the ISPAs for over a decade because of our high quality internet services for schools and businesses. In fact, this is our twelfth consecutive year of finalist nominations. We were shortlisted for 5 awards in 2015, and took home the award for Best Business Customer Service back in 2014 (after 3 nominations).

We’re looking forward to the 2016 ISPAs, with our Director Mark Cowgill saying that ‘Exa has always been committed to providing our customers with a great level of service and options to meet their needs, and we’re proud to have been nominated for 4 ISPA Awards this year’.

Here’s the 4 categories we’ve been shortlisted for:

1. Best Shared Hosting: We offer simple, customer-focused hosting with low contention ratios and high load speeds. Because we offer a completely flexible service, we’re able to give our shared hosting customers exactly what they’re looking for from a hosting solution. Our flexibility ensures that we’re able to quickly respond to any issues our customers have, while being able to provide completely bespoke service.

2. Best Dedicated Hosting: Our dedicated hosting service is built to give our customers high quality, reliable service that doesn’t overcomplicate or overcharge. We make sure that Exa Networks customers never have to worry about hidden charges, while creating bespoke hosting solutions designed to achieve exactly what the customer wants.

3. Best Cloud Product: Our SurfProtect Cloud content filtering system is one of the most flexible content filtering services around. SurfProtect’s user-friendly design lets designated users easily change filter setting in real time - making it absolutely ideal for schools, where teachers may need to quickly access resources. SurfProtect’s flexibility means that different permissions can be applied to different groups, users and computers - giving different year groups different levels of access is simple, for example.

4. Safety Award: SurfProtect has also been nominated for a Safety Award, showing off just how useful it is for schools and various businesses. We’ve constantly work to improve SurfProtect with the recent addition of helping with the Prevent Duty and our brand new version of SurfProtect launching very shortly, at no cost to our customers.

We’re looking forward to the ISPA Awards, and we’ll be keeping you updated after the event! Make sure you follow us on Twitter @ExaNetworks to see exactly what’s going on.
