REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS) a global provider of services that unify the management of enterprise mobility, today announced that its iPass Mobile Office service has been named Mobile Product or Service of the Year at the CNET Networks UK Business And Technology Awards 2007. iPass fought off stiff competition from industry leaders including Intel, T-Mobile and Vodafone to claim the award. Estelle Derouet, marketing director, EMEA & APAC, iPass, collected the award at a gala dinner on September 24 at the London Hilton Park Lane, London.

"iPass is honored to receive this award and considers it a reflection of the hard work put in by every division within the company, from product development to sales and marketing," said René Hendrikse, iPass managing director, EMEA. "We've seen accelerating growth in Wi-Fi usage in both the UK and Europe this year, with London leading the charge as the most popular Wi-Fi city in the world. Working on the move is becoming second nature to business people as enterprises seek to increase efficiency and productivity, and iPass Mobile Office helps them achieve this while maintaining necessary control over connectivity and devices."

Voted for by a panel of 22 judges of UK public and private sector executives, industry analysts and CNET Networks editorial staff, the award for Mobile Product or Service of the Year is presented to the technology vendor which has demonstrated innovation and is making a real difference to the way companies do business.
