The award—which Code42 also received in 2013—recognizes the most innovative products in higher education in a variety of areas, including technology, sustainability and academic instruction.

"Security is a crucial, ongoing concern for higher-ed IT teams charged with protecting endpoint data without hindering productivity," said Mitch Coopet, co-founder and chief technology officer at Code42. "CrashPlan is chosen by leading institutions such as Boston University, University of Notre Dame, University of Texas and MIT because it provides mobile faculty and staff with continued access to data—all while helping IT comply with the most stringent data security and privacy requirements."

Selected by University Business' editors from hundreds of nominations, winning products were based on both the quantity of nominations and quality of nominees' testimonials. The complete list of Readers' Choice Top Products is featured online and in the January 2015 issue of University Business.
