BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - Vyatta, the leader in Linux-based networking, today announced it has been honored by IDG's InfoWorld with a 2008 Bossie Award for its open routing, firewall, and VPN software.

"The recognition from InfoWorld underscores that Vyatta is among the 'best of the best' open solutions that are providing new choices for customers, and disrupting traditional markets as a result," said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Vyatta. "Growth in customer adoption and the community, as well as industry recognition validate the flexibility, choice, and value that Vyatta brings to the networking market."

"The breadth and quality of open source software continues to amaze us," notes Doug Dineley, Executive Editor of the InfoWorld Test Center. "We've singled out 60 products for Bossies -- developer tools, middleware, firewalls and routers, productivity apps, CRM and ERP, etc. -- and we're only scratching the surface. When you look at all that's available, and how good it is, you start to think that someday all software will be open."

InfoWorld's annual Bossies recognize the best free and open source software the world has to offer to businesses, IT professionals, and productive individuals who rely on computers to get work done. The 2008 Bossie winners include products in eight categories covering business and productivity applications, development tools, middleware, networking, security, and storage.
