Managed Services: Apparent Networks
Apparent Networks won the Tech Innovator Award in the managed services category for its Pathview Cloud monitoring technology.
Moltzen, in presenting the award to CEO Jim Melvin, said that benchmarking network performance is a longstanding best practice for solution providers, but when the network is the Internet the results can vary widely.
"You look to a solution that provides real-time monitoring of performance by carriers and hosting providers to keep VARs on track with best practices whether IT is on site or in the heavens," he said, referring to the Pathview Cloud.
Runner up in the category was the SecureGRC from Santa Clara, Calif.-based eGestalt, which Moltzen said solution providers can use to help customers be compliant with government mandates.
