NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 09, 2016) - Presidio announced today that it has received a Cisco® Partner Summit Global award
for Enterprise Partner of the Year as well as an additional 11 geographic and regional awards, most notably being recognized as Americas
Partner of the Year for both Security and Collaboration. Cisco revealed the winners at a Global Awards reception during its annual partner
conference that took place in San Francisco, California.
Awarded to exemplary channel partners, the Cisco Partner Summit Global awards are designed to recognize best-in-class business practices

"It gives me great pleasure to recognize our partners' incredible accomplishments, breakthroughs, and innovations that address our
customers' most pressing business issues," said Wendy Bahr, senior vice president, Global Partner Organization, Cisco. "I'm honored to
present the Enterprise Partner of the Year to Presidio in recognition of its outstanding achievement in helping customers on the path to
digitization and true IT transformation."

business units, bringing them a broad portfolio of digital transformation services," said Bob Cagnazzi, CEO, Presidio. "Being singled out from
the Americas partner community for Security Partner of the Year is a testament to Presidio Cyber Risk Management, our next generation
approach for security. And being recognized repeatedly as Collaboration Partner of the Year is a strong affirmation of our roots and long
history of being a leader in Collaboration, and this year for our leadership in Spark and cloud-based collaboration solutions." He added:
