SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM) Named The 2010 Editors' Best and a Community Choice Award Winner by Windows IT Pro Magazine

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - December 15, 2010) -  SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software to more than 97,000 customers worldwide, today announced that its flagship product for network management and monitoring, Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM), received two industry accolades from Penton Media's Windows IT Pro magazine.

Orion NPM was named the "2010 Editors' Best" gold medal winner and the "2010 Community Choice" bronze medal winner in the Best Network Management Product category.

"We're honored to once again have Orion NPM recognized by both the editors and readers of Windows IT Pro Magazine," said Josh Stephens, SolarWinds' Head Geek and VP of Technology. "Designed with feedback from our user community thwack, we are pleased to see that the solution continues to meet and exceed the challenges faced by IT pros needing to quickly detect, diagnose and resolve performance issues."

"Thousands of IT pros nominated and voted for their favorite products in our 2010 Community Choice Awards," said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Windows IT Pro. "Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine and DevProConnections communities showed unprecedented enthusiasm in their voting this year, calling out their favorite products based on top-tier performance and service. And with three separate surveys this year, each magazine offers a uniquely beneficial collection of top products for readers to consider in their environments.

"As always, we counted only those votes accompanied by a valid and unique email address, thereby preventing multiple entries per person. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards."
