(NASDAQ: NTIQ), a leading provider of integrated systems and security management solutions, today announced that NetIQ® MailMarshal™ SMTP was named a midmarket "Product of the Year" by CMP Media's VARBusiness Magazine.

VARBusiness, a biweekly magazine that provides strategic insight to technology integrators, solicited input from information technology (IT) vendors and solution providers to determine which products and services were best for midmarket customers -- companies with between 100 and 999 employees. Entries were considered and reviewed by VARBusiness editors, who selected only 100 of the more than 400 nominated products.

"Our readers tell us that the middle market is one of the fastest-growing IT categories today," said Robert C. DeMarzo, publisher of VARBusiness. "NetIQ MailMarshal SMTP is a product that best meets that segment's needs."

"It is an honor to be recognized by the editors at a publication such as VARBusiness, as it is a publication that is valued by the reseller channel," said Michael Ragusa, vice president of Worldwide Channel Sales at NetIQ. "NetIQ strives to provide customers of different sizes with integrated, best-of-breed Systems and Security Management solutions that ease their pain and also offer the most bang for their buck."
