SilverBack Technologies Certified as Five-Star Vendor From CMP's VARBusiness Magazine

Marks 5th Consecutive Year as Five-Star Vendor

BILLERICA, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- SilverBack Technologies (, the industry's leading provider of service-delivery platforms that allow IT service providers to profitably enter the managed services business, today announced it has been recognized by CMP Technology's VARBusiness magazine as one of North America's top information-technology (IT) vendors in terms of the partnership programs it offers to solution providers that sell its products and services to end users.

SilverBack was certified as a Five-Star Vendor, acknowledging its commitment and strength of its programs for IT integrators, resellers and consultants.

Of the 250+ vendor-program entries reviewed for the past year, only 60 companies received the coveted five-star rating in the magazine's 13th annual Partner Programs Guide survey. The guide appears in the March 19, 2007 issue of VARBusiness.

"This award marks our fifth consecutive year of being selected a 5-Star Vendor, more times than any other MSP platform vendor," said SilverBack CEO Dan Phillips. "We've worked hard to win the channel's trust in adopting our brand and methodology surrounding the sometimes challenging nature of the managed services business model. The industry has evolved to the point where large profit margins have become commonplace."

"We applaud vendors like SilverBack Technologies for demonstrating best practices and for the leadership roles they have achieved within the IT distribution channel," said VARBusiness Editor Lawrence M. Walsh.

SilverBack provides the MSP industry's leading service management platform. It monitors and manages the complete IT infrastructure, including servers, desktops, network and security devices, printers, and UPS systems.
