CAMBRIDGE, UK – 27 September 2007 – At CNET Network UK’s annual Business Technology awards ceremony on the 24th of September, a panel of 22 judges awarded “Networking Product of the Year” to Zeus Technology for ZXTM VA (ZXTM Virtual Appliance). ZXTM VA won in a category that included products from Blue Coat, Packeteer, Ruckus Wireless and Sarian Systems. The product impressed judges with its availability as a virtual appliance, its ease of configuration and the fact that it allows administrators to resolve difficult application and network problems quickly, without necessarily having to take down the application.

The CNET Networks UK Business Technology Awards have fast become the most sought-after industry accolade, boasting a panel of high-caliber judges which is comprised of senior practitioners and experts from the industry and media.

“It is a genuine honor and a pleasure to accept the ‘Networking Product of the Year’ award,” said Paul Brennan, Chairman of Zeus Technology. “It validates the strategic direction Zeus Technology has taken, which enables the growing number of users of virtualization to gain greater value from their virtual infrastructures.”

Launched at VMworld 2006 in Los Angeles, ZXTM VA is the only Layer 7 traffic management solution available as a virtual appliance. ZXTM VA has also passed VMware's stringent Virtual Appliance Certification program.
