The Best Of Interop Awards pay tribute to some of the most innovative vendors and products to come out the annual networking event. This year, nearly 150 products were selected for Interop judges to review, with only seven of them ultimately taking home a prize.
The judges' decisions were meant to reflect the products showing "the most potential of advancing the business technology market" and were split across seven Best of Interop Awards categories: Cloud Computing and Virtualization; Data Center and Storage; Management and Monitoring; Networking; Performance Optimization and Testing; Security; and, Wireless, Mobility and BYOD Support. There was also an award given for the overall Best of Interop Award, Best Start-Up and Audience Choice.
Here are this year's Best of Interop winners.
