Austin, Texas – January 24, 2008 | Uplogix, the leading provider of next-generation secure remote management (SRM) solutions, today announced Mark Piening, VP of marketing, will speak at the 2008 Technosium Conference held January 29-31 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Uplogix’ award-winning SRM appliance is like having the best IT administrator always on-site, 7×24, in distributed locations such as branch offices and remote datacenters. In comparison, traditional network management tools are not equipped to automate routine maintenance and recovery tasks because they depend on the network being available, and thus rely on people to do the work. The Uplogix solution is a new approach that significantly reduces labor costs and allows IT professionals to focus on more critical responsibilities.
