NetIQ's Security Compliance Suite Receives Top Honors in Redmond Magazine’s 2007 Readers’ Choice Awards

Security Solution Recognized by Readers as “Best Compliance Tool”

Press Release


Redmond Magazine today announced that NetIQ's Security Compliance Suite has been named winner in the "Best Compliance Tool" category of the Redmond Readers' Choice Awards. The 2007 Winner and Preferred Product awards, which appear in the April issue, are presented to vendors across 45 different product categories, ranging from anti-virus and network management to firewalls and backup utilities.

The Redmond Readers' Choice Awards are a true representation of readers' preferences. The Readers' Choice survey is sent out to thousands of readers and responses are collected during a two-week period in January. Following that, a team of editors review and evaluate the responses before the final results are announced.

"I like working through the responses from the Readers' Choice survey and examining the comments they make on the individual products," says executive editor Lafe Low, who has coordinated the awards process for the last several years. "It's sort of like having a conversation with our readers. It's important to appreciate that this is indeed direct from our readers. The winners are all chosen by our readers—period. I salute NetIQ's Security Compliance Suite for receiving this recognition. Redmond's readers have put you on top."
