Intelliden Selected as Finalist for Coveted CODiE Award Wednesday 20 February 2008 PDF Print Recognition Spotlights Importance of Policy Based Compliance Management for Network-Driven Organizations MENLO PARK, CA, - February 20, 2008 - Intelliden, a leading provider of Intelligent Networking solutions that enable organizations to control, manage and scale their networks, announced today that its Policy Based Compliance Management application has been named a finalist in the 2008 CODiE Awards “Best Systems Management Solution” category. This year the competition for Software & Information Industry Association’s 23rd annual CODiE Awards was particularly stiff with more than 1,000 nominations by more than 600 companies. Intelliden’s Policy Based Compliance Management (PBCM) application has been designed to meet the compliance needs of ‘network-driven’ organizations, who demand the highest possible levels of network availability, reliability and security. It is industry’s first application to support total network compliance needs, including regulatory, industry, security and operational requirements. It is also the only application that combines automated compliance, intelligent remediation, unmatched usability, and support for an unlimited number of policies to meet the needs of the largest and most complex networks. The CODiE Awards celebrate achievement and vision in software, education technology and digital content, and these awards represent the only-peer reviewed honor in the industry. Winners will be named at the 23rd Annual CODiE Awards Gala held on May 20, 2008 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. ”Competition is tough this year and that makes selection as a CODiE Finalist a real achievement," said Ken Wash, the Software & Information Industry Association’s president. “All of the companies on this year’s list should feel justifiably proud of their recognition.” “Network engineering and operations have never been under greater pressure to support the business requirements of today’s networks,” said Alan Black, CEO of Intelliden. “The need to rapidly deploy IP-based services at lower costs coupled with heightened compliance and security requirements necessitates a greater degree of automation, reliability and intelligence than that provided by traditional script-based tools. Intelliden PBCM uniquely enables our customers to balance business risk management with stringent service availability requirements. It’s extremely gratifying to have our peers in the software industry recognize our commitment to innovation and contribution with PBCM.” Jupiter Media’s Datamation Product of the Year This award comes on the heels of another distinction for Intelliden. The company was recently named as a runner-up in Jupiter’s Datamation Product of the Year award for Network and Systems Management. According to Datamation.com Managing Editor James Maguire, the winners represent “the essential building blocks of IT infrastructure.” ### About the CODiE Awards In 1986, the Excellence in Software Awards program was established by the Software Publishers Association, now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that the pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work. In 1993, the Excellence in Software Awards became the Codie Awards. Since its inauguration, the Codie Awards program has carried forward the same vision: to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence for corporate achievement and philanthropic efforts. The Codie Awards holds the distinction of being the only peer-recognition awards program of its kind in the industry, providing a unique opportunity for companies to earn the praise of their competitors. Now in its 23rd year, the CODiE Awards program remains the standard bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in our industry.
