Idera’s SQL Diagnostic Manager Wins Bronze in Best Database Monitoring & Performance Category

HOUSTON – DECEMBER 19, 2013 – Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, announced today that its SQL Compliance Manager and SQL Diagnostic Manager solutions have earned the gold and bronze distinctions, respectively, in Penton Media’s SQL Server Pro annual awards program.

“We are honored that DBAs tasked with optimizing performance at some of the world’s largest companies recognize Idera as a leader in the SQL Server management market,” said Randy Jacops, CEO of Idera. “With more than 13,000 customers and over 10 years experience, Idera provides overworked IT professionals with robust solutions that simply and easily monitor, secure and audit the business-critical data within their SQL Server environments.”

SQL Compliance Manager — Idera’s real-time SQL Server monitoring, alerting, and auditing solution — was named the 2013 Community Choice gold award winner in the Best Security, Auditing & Compliance category. In addition, SQL Diagnostic Manager — Idera’s powerful, 24x7 SQL Server performance monitoring, alerting and diagnostics solution — was recognized as the 2013 Community Choice bronze award winner in the Best Database Monitoring & Performance category. 

“Participation in our 2013 Community Choice awards was excellent,” said Jason Bovberg, senior editor at Penton. “Our Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Pro, and DevPro awards programs are unique in that the product-nomination process is open to readers. We don't just present a predefined list of products and services, thereby limiting scope. Instead, the community both nominates and votes for the best products of the year, ensuring a nice breadth of inclusion in the surveys. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards.”

This marks the fourth consecutive year for Idera to win Penton Media’s Community Choice Gold award for the company’s industry-leading security, compliance and auditing software.
