Tech Awards Circle celebrates the products, vendors and individuals making a difference in the industry today. The winners represent a broad range of achievements, from hardware to software to services in SMB, midrange and enterprise markets.

“GFI Software was rated among the ‘best of the best’ for true industry excellence and innovation to be a winner of the Tech Awards Circle finalists,” said Kevin Anderson, awards program coordinator. “Our judges were impressed with the level of submissions from all the vendors entering this year’s competition, so to be named a winner of this prestigious award is a testament to the quality and innovation shown by the winners in the high tech community.

About Tech Awards Circle
Tech Awards Circle was established this year to truly honor the ‘best of the best’ in technology. Tech Awards Circle is not affiliated with an analyst firm or a media company, both of which are directly supported by tech vendors through consulting relationships or advertising sales, so it is uniquely unbiased and immune to conflicts of interest. Entries are judged by an independent circle of journalists, including product reviewers, each with at least a decade of experience covering technology from consumer electronics to enterprise-class computing. To prevent these judges from being unduly influenced by vendors, they have agreed to remain anonymous. For more information or to be added to the mailing list please visit
