Network Automation, Inc., the leader in automation software, has been honored with two prestigious awards. Network Automation's Automate has been named the winner in the Automation/Scheduling Software category of the 2006 Windows IT Pro Readers' Choice Awards. Just as importantly, Redmond Magazine chose AutoMate for an MVP award in a recent product review.

"The 2006 Windows IT Pro Readers' Choice Awards continue our tradition of honoring products that our readers tell us are most worthy of recognition," said Kim Paulsen, group publisher of Penton Media's Windows IT Pro. "These are the hardware, software, and services that measure up where it counts most--in the businesses, agencies, and institutions that rely on them to deliver what they promise."
Readers were asked to vote on their product preferences in 12 broad technology categories. More than 5,200 readers chose the best among more than 750 products and services.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by end-user customers for our efforts to automate those routine tasks and make day-to-day IT operations run more smoothly," said Dustin Snell, CEO at Network Automation. "As Window-based enterprise administrators and other users face increasing cost and complexity when accomplishing their daily goals, it is gratifying to be recognized as a key solution to help streamline operations and improve efficiency. Being honored in the two publications most widely read by Windows administrators is a testament to the power and value of AutoMate."

Network Automation's AutoMate drastically reduces the time associated with business and IT processes by eliminating repetitive, non-value-added human interaction, as well as process errors and delays. Networks, mainframes and desktops are automated through AutoMate's easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface, enabling users to develop and deploy complex tasks quickly. IT professionals of all levels use the platform to create sophisticated automation routines more quickly than writing code from scratch, and with far greater ease.
