Management & Monitoring

ScienceLogic: ScienceLogic EM7 v7.3
iTrinegy: AppQoS
ExtraHop Networks: EH8000

ScienceLogic dominated the Management & Monitoring category with its Smart IT software that delivers comprehensive, multi-tenant support for Amazon Web Services and vCloud Director. Lead judge Steven Hill described the current version, EM7 v7.3, as "pretty much the network administrator's equivalent of Batman's amazing utility belt, offering practically any customizable tool you need when you need it."

Performance Optimization & Testing

Talari Networks: APN 3.0 Operating Software
PathSolutions: PathSolutions Network Performance Manager, Release 4.3
Mellanox Technologies: Unstructured Data Accelerator (UDA) Version 3.1

Talari's Adaptive Private Network (APN) 3.0 won the Performance Optimization & Testing category for its ability to provide a dynamic, simple and robust private network over existing WAN technologies, with minimal effort required for configuration and management. Judge Mike Fratto, who is a senior analyst with Current Analysis, pointed out how Talari's APN 3.0 builds a mesh network between destinations and tunnels network traffic through the best path. This process helps ensure application performance regardless of what's happening in the underlying network.

Security

The Hacker Academy: HackRack
F5 Networks: Application Delivery Firewall
Solera Networks: Solera DeepSee Virtual Appliance

The Hacker Academy's HackRack won the Security category by offering a solution to the industry's shortage of skilled security professionals. HackRack uses a virtualized training environment to give security and IT people a simulated attack environment, enabling them to learn how best to react to different threat scenarios -- much the same way that pilots learn to fly in flight simulators.

Wireless, Mobility & BYOD Support

Citrix: Mobile Solutions Bundle
Cisco: Adaptive Radio Modules for the 3600 Access Point
Mersive: Solstice

Citrix won the Wireless & BYOD Support competition with its Mobile Solutions Bundle that helps gives enterprises a comprehensive mobile device management (MDM) solution. Judge Lee Badman, who is a network and wireless engineer with Syracuse University, said, "Citrix makes short work of a complicated challenge," referring to the strong defenses it provides against data leakage and the helpful audit trails it provides for dealing with bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments.

Networking

Arista Networks: 7500E Data Center Switch
Aryaka Networks: Network as-a-Service (NaaS)
NetScout Systems: nGenius 3900 series packet flow switch (continued...)
