Zenprise MobileManager Named 2009 Editors' Best Award Winner by Windows IT Pro Magazine

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Zenprise, Inc., a provider of mobile management software, today announced that Zenprise MobileManager was named a silver medal winner in the Windows IT Pro "2009 Editor's Best Awards" in the Best Messaging Product category. The Editor's Best Awards are given to products that Windows IT Pro editors believe are the best-of-breed products in their respective categories.

Zenprise MobileManager is the only product to integrate and support monitoring, expense management, security, and device management across multiple smartphone platforms including BlackBerry®, iPhone, Windows Mobile and Palm. Adopting a complete mobile management strategy enables IT to increase end user service levels by more than 75 percent, reduce total cost of ownership by more than 25 percent, and increase corporate compliance rates to 100 percent.

"The 2009 Editors' Best Awards are an accumulation of our editors', contributors' and authors' subject matter expertise, in service of identifying the year's most significant products in the market," said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director. "We believe that our editorial experts' annual tradition of selecting winners based on a product's strategic importance to market, its competitive advantages and its value to the customer is particularly significant to the Windows IT Pro community this year, as we call out exceptional products in a highly competitive market."

"Taking a holistic approach to mobile management is a key priority for IT managers given the rapid proliferation of smartphones within the enterprise," said Ahmed Datoo, vice president of marketing at Zenprise. "This award validates Zenprise's longstanding commitment to helping our customers achieve the full benefits of enterprise mobility and our continued focus on driving innovation in our category."

This is the second year in a row that Zenprise has received an Editor's Best award, having won in the Mobile and Wireless category in 2008. This announcement follows on the heels of another award for Zenprise, which recently announced that its customer, Varian Medical Systems Inc., was recognized as a 2009 Mobilizer Award winner from Mobile Enterprise Magazine based on its deployment of the Zenprise MobileManager platform.
