Zenprise announced today that Zenprise for BlackBerry® was named a gold medal winner of the "2008 Editor's Best Awards" in the Mobile and Wireless category by Penton Media's Windows IT Pro magazine.
"The 2008 Editor's Best Awards utilize our editors' product knowledge and subject matter expertise to identify exceptional products that benefit the Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine reader communities," said Jeff Lewis, group publisher. "Our editors selected winners based on the product's strategic importance to the market, its competitive advantages and its value to the customer."
"Our editors are tough, in-the-trenches critics," Lewis continued. "They demand solid value and performance from the products they select. Editor's Best Award winners can feel proud that the products and services they developed have earned the respect and recognition of the Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine editorial staff."
"IT is constantly bombarded with a myriad of support related issues from their mobile users," said Jayaram Bhat, CEO of Zenprise. "Zenprise simplifies the process by automatically monitoring and troubleshooting BlackBerry user issues. This acknowledgement from Windows IT Pro further validates the value of automating mobile management."
Zenprise software automatically troubleshoots end user issues across the entire BlackBerry service. Unlike traditional BlackBerry monitoring solutions, Zenprise identifies the root cause of user issues and provides detailed resolution instructions to fix these problems. In addition to monitoring the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, Zenprise is the only solution that also checks wireless network availability, Active Directory health, BlackBerry SRP availability, carrier availability, WAN/LAN network performance, and overall Microsoft Exchange server health.
Zenprise and its products have continued to gain the admiration of the industry. In 2008, the company was honored with eWeek's Excellence Award in Mobile & Wireless. In 2007, Zenprise won the Technology of the Year award in InfoWorld's annual Technology of the Year issue, Gartner Research's "Cool Vendor" award, and SearchExchange.com's "Product of the Year." Zenprise was also identified by Network World as one of 9 wireless startups to watch, and was a finalist in the Red Herring 100 and Red Herring 100 Global Awards, Windows IT Pro Editor's Best and PC Pro Awards. In 2006, the company was honored by InfoWorld as one of fifteen "Startups to Watch," won TechWorld's "Troubleshooting/Analysis Product of the Year," and was a Codie's "Software Newcomer of the Year" finalist. Additionally, Zenprise is the only startup to have won the Best of Tech-Ed award two years in a row. Last year Zenprise won in the mobility category and in 2006 won the best messaging solution.
