TAMPA, FL – April 1, 2015— Utopic Software, a system and configuration management solution leader, was named a finalist for the BIG Award for Business by the Business Intelligence Group. Utopic’s Persystent Suite was nominated for New Product of the Year.

Persystent was recognized for their advancements and paradigm-changing solutions for self-healing lifecycle automation.

“This acknowledgement goes far in confirming the viability of automated corrective action against any unauthorized change whether a device is on or off a network,” said Utopic Software CEO Bob Whirley. “More specifically, it validates the incredible hard work our team has put in to developing a comprehensive and game-changing solution. It is truly a great honor.”

One of the chief reasons Persystent was singled out for recognition is that the solution combines multiple functions in a single solution: repair/recovery, imaging and compliance management. Simply, it automates key administrative, security, compliance and help desk maintenance. It directly addresses and solves issues in near real-time (about 45 seconds) related to misconfigurations and re-imaging through the management and perpetuation of an approved ideal state. This is what Whirley refers to as “self-healing.”

“Persystent Suite maintains consistent device integrity because it removes unauthorized changes that might put a system at risk. Whether we’re talking malware breach, user error, unintentional registry change, even catastrophic device operating system failures, it restores any device in your enterprise back to optimal conditions...on demand or automatically on reboot,” Utopic Lead Engineer Dhaval Patel noted.

This is the first year Persystent was nominated for the BIG Award.

“The winners this year epitomize what is going right with companies,” said Russ Fordyce, Managing Director of the Business Intelligence Group. “The sheer amount of innovation and the renewed attention to the customer experience was a common theme. We are incredibly proud to reward each and every winner and finalist.”
