Claranet named a Leader in Gartner’s latest Magic Quadrant

Gartner publishes latest Magic Quadrant for Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting, Europe 2015

Claranet has been positioned as a “Leader” in Gartner’s Cloud Enabled Managed Hosting Magic Quadrant, Europe, for the third year in a row. Claranet believes that their placement in the Quadrant, which was published by Tiny Haynes et al. on 30th June 2015, confirms their position as one of the leading providers of integrated hosting, network and communications services in Europe.

In its latest report Gartner states: “Leaders have proved they have staying power in this market, can frequently innovate on their existing products and can be relied upon for enterprise-class needs. They have proved their technical competence and ability to deliver services to a wide range of customers. They can also address multiple cases with stand-alone or integrated solutions.”

Commenting on the Quadrant, Claranet’s CEO, Charles Nasser, stated:

“We have taken big strides over the past year to support our completeness of vision and improve our ability to execute across Europe. The strategically-important acquisitions in Portugal and Spain bolstered our Iberian presence, while our strengthening relationships with large infrastructure providers, such as AWS and Microsoft, have facilitated the development of more innovative services. We believe that these improvements enable us to support our customers better than ever before and have been reflected in our improved position in this year’s Magic Quadrant.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant assessment offers snapshots of markets and their participants. It enables users to map vendor strengths against their current and future needs. Gartner evaluated Claranet’s hosting portfolio on both its completeness of vision and its ability to execute using 15 weighted criteria.

“The European managed hosting market is rapidly consolidating around a handful of major providers, of which Claranet is one. Earlier this year we successfully completed a round of refinancing, which has granted us new flexibility to further develop the business, with new acquisitions and product development, while ensuring that our growth is sustainable in the longer term,” Nasser concluded.
