GroupLogic ExtremeZ-IP Named Best Interoperability Product by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro Magazine

Arlington, VA, December 15, 2009 – GroupLogic, the leading provider of enterprise-class connectivity solutions, announced today that ExtremeZ-IP won the Silver award for “Best Interoperability Product” in the 2009 Windows IT Pro Community Choice Awards as selected by the IT professional community. GroupLogic’s ExtremeZ-IP is known as the leading Macintosh-to-Windows connectivity solution and has brought file and print sharing compatibility to cross-platform environments since 1999.

"The 2009 Community Choice Awards had a record number of entries this year. Thousands of products were nominated by our audience of IT professionals. Peer-to-peer product and service recognition is the ultimate goal that all market players have, but it can be difficult to achieve", said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director for the magazine.

"Our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine communities level the playing field by calling out their favorite products based on performance and service. We counted only those votes accompanied by a valid and unique email address, thereby preventing multiple entries per person. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards."

“ExtremeZ-IP has long been highly regarded in the Mac IT community and we are gratified to have our unique value lauded by the Windows IT Pro Community of IT professionals,” comments T. Reid Lewis, Founder and CEO of GroupLogic. “With the surge in Mac deployment in corporations and government, complete interoperability with Windows infrastructure truly delivers higher productivity for both managers and IT administrators.”

ExtremeZ-IP is the market leader for file and print sharing between Macintosh computers and Windows servers. Only ExtremeZ-IP’s unique Windows integration features and capabilities can guarantee the interoperability you expect, such as:

  • Support for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Support for Windows Server 2008 R2
