Los Angeles, November 19, 2009

Network Automation, Inc., the leader in automation software, announced today that its Business Process Automation (BPA) software, AutoMate 7, has received a gold medal in the "Best IT Automation Product" category of Windows IT Pro magazine's 2009 Community Choice Awards. The awards, nominated and voted on by the general IT community, recognize the favorite products and services individuals visiting the online forums of Penton Media's Windows IT Pro/SQL Server magazine.

AutoMate 7, which also won Windows IT Pro magazine's Editors' Best award in 2007, has risen to the top of the IT automation software marketplace due to its remarkable power, simplicity and ease-of-use. The application allows organizations to automate any repetitive computing task-from small jobs on workstations to network-wide "intelligent" processing routines -- using a highly intuitive design interface that enables IT professionals to build automation tasks quickly without writing code.. Designed for flexibility and applicability to a wide range of automation issues, Automate 7's pre-programmed automation actions and drag-and-drop visual workflow assembly are ideal for automating tasks involving application integration, job scheduling, automated FTP transfers, Excel automation, batch processing, automated report generation, data transformation, database queries, system monitoring and automated problem resolution.

"The 2009 Community Choice Awards had a record number of entries this year. Thousands of products were nominated by our audience of IT professionals. Peer-to-peer product and service recognition is the ultimate goal that all market players have, but it can be difficult to achieve," said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director. "Our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server magazine communities even the playing field by calling out their favorite products based on performance and service. 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."

"Perhaps more than anyone else in the industry, the readers of Windows IT Pro have their ears to the ground when it comes to the evolving state of enterprise software. It's that product knowledge that makes this honor all the more gratifying," said Dustin Snell, founder and CEO of Network Automation. "It's our intent at Network Automation to continually do all we can to keep AutoMate 7, and all our products, at the forefront of their categories in quality and user value."
