TORONTO--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - Specops Software, a global innovation leader of Group Policy and Windows PowerShell-based desktop automation and password management software, today announced that Windows IT Pro has named Specops Software as the Editors' Best 2010 winner in the category of "Best Deployment/Configuration Product." 

Specops Deploy is a Group Policy and Active Directory-based solution designed to help administrators easily deploy software and operating systems in Windows networks. It requires no additional hardware and uses existing infrastructure to help manage the deployment of applications and operating systems; its competitive pricing and the real-time feedback it offers administrators are additional benefits.

"Our team and our products continue to prove themselves successful year after year," said Thorbjorn Sjövold, CTO of Specops Software. "We are proud that our customers and the industry recognize the value of Specops Deploy and we are thrilled to be given this award."

Windows IT Pro's Editors' Best and Community Choice awards are bestowed annually in several categories. Last year Specops Deploy won the Community Choice award.

"I think that if an organization is sophisticated enough to have a Windows domain with AD, it would be reasonable to have Specops Deploy in its tool kit," says Mike Lypp, a systems administrator for a large automotive retail outlet. "Microsoft just never made deployments this manageable. I'm fairly self-sufficient when it comes to deployments, as I was using the Windows MSI technology prior to purchasing Specops. With Windows, it's a 'hope for the best' scenario that is mostly blind. With Specops Deploy, I know exactly what's happening, where the errors are by computer name, and which error is causing an issue. I can be proactive in solving the issue simply because I know about it. Prior to having this product, I was reliant on software manufacturers to provide a useable MSI package. I now have the flexibility to truly deploy legacy installers with equal success."

Specops Deploy is a proven solution that offers automation of client computers, making it an ideal tool for organizations planning to migrate to Windows 7. This easy-to-use software deployment system has garnered numerous technical and user rated awards.
