COLUMBIA, Md. --(Business Wire)--

company offering technologies or solutions that are:

The Gartner Cool Vendors process starts with their annual nomination
list of emerging IT vendors who are not yet well known, generally
$1M-$100M in annual revenues, and have captured the attention of the

seeking innovative vendors to work with, other companies looking for

network operations center (NOC (News - Alert)) teams, and system administrators (SA's)

possibly service providers due to its scalability.
