Vyatta Recognized as Leader in Open Source in Networking for Second Consecutive Year

Vyatta, the leader in open networking and network virtualization, today announced it has been honored by InfoWorld with a 2009 Bossie Award for its open routing, firewall, and VPN software. This marks the second consecutive year that Vyatta has been recognized with a Bossie, further supporting the networking industry's move to open source.

"Vyatta's open-source approach to networking has been embraced as the router, firewall, and VPN of choice running thousands of networks worldwide. Our commitment to the open-source model has allowed us to build a strong community and business that is challenging traditional networking vendors on price, performance and overall value," said Dave Roberts, Vyatta's vice-president of strategy and marketing. "This Bossie award confirms what Vyatta's customers have been saying: Vyatta is a powerful networking solution that easily handles the requirements of an enterprise network with the added benefit of the flexibility and affordability inherent in open-source. We're pleased that Vyatta has been recognized by InfoWorld for the second year in a row."

"If you think you can easily whittle down the best open source software to a manageable number, you'll soon discover that you can't do it without a great deal of hair pulling, nail biting, and gnashing of teeth," said Doug Dineley, Executive Editor and Tester, InfoWorld. "There are just too many excellent tools."

Companies around the world rely on technology to enable and enhance their business operations and deliver on their business strategies. The InfoWorld Bossie Awards recognize each year the best business-oriented open source software products. The 2009 Bossie winners include products covering the following categories: developer tools, platforms and middleware, and enterprise and networking software.
