Paid Monitor Wins the Innovator’s Showcase at The 451 Group Annual Conference

Press release

San Jose, CA – November, 2009 – Paid Monitor, the leading provider of affordable, easy-to-use, 100% Cloud-based, network and systems monitoring solutions, has won the Innovators Showcase at The 451 Group 2009 Annual Client Conference held in Boston, USA held on November 3-4.

The Innovator’s Showcase highlights some of the world’s most exciting early-stage IT companies. Following a presentation to the conference, Paid Monitor was voted the most innovative new start-up by attendees, who included leading venture capital firms, investment banks and peers in the technology industry.

A key theme at the conference was computing in the Cloud and how it is changing the rules for enterprise IT. Paid Monitor, as the first and only 100% Cloud-based, enterprise-grade, all-in-one suite network and systems monitoring tools, embodies the benefits of this shift to the Cloud. In addition to freeing up massive amounts of time for IT managers who would otherwise be stuck sitting on-site with software-based systems, Paid Monitor is simple to use, employs a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription model which keeps costs low, and stops companies from having to worry about things like upgrades or server maintenance that are part of the hassle of software-based monitoring solutions.

“The cloud is the next frontier of IT operations management,” said Dennis Callaghan, enterprise software analyst at The 451 Group. “With its ability to do performance monitoring, testing and configuration management in the Cloud, and of workloads running in the Cloud, at an affordable price, we believe Paid Monitor is a company to watch in the nascent Cloud management space.”

“To be invited to compete at The 451 Group’s 2009 Innovator’s Showcase was an honor in itself,” said Hovhannes Avoyan, Paid Monitor’ Founder and CEO. “But to have over 350 opinion leaders from around the world choose Paid Monitor as the most innovative start-up for 2009 is thrilling. It’s testament to the fact that we’ve hit upon a real market need with a product that is at least a generation ahead of the competition.”
