Bomgar Named to Software Magazine’s 29th Annual Software 500

JACKSON, MS - October 3, 2011 - Bomgar, the worldwide leader in secure, enterprise remote support solutions, ranked #367 in Software Magazine’s 2011 Software, which ranks the world’s largest software and service providers. Targeting IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing for medium to large enterprises, the Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services providers. Some 27 percent of the 2011 Software 500 companies are privately held, with more than 100 companies on the 2011 list for the first time, reflecting the dynamic nature of the industry.

“The 2011 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $541.5 billion worldwide for 2010, representing approximately 10 percent growth from the previous year’s list,” said John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com.

“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” Desmond continued. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software.” 

Founded in 2003, Bomgar has since become the market leader in secure, enterprise remote support solutions. Using Bomgar, IT support technicians can remotely access and service virtually any computing system or mobile device based in any location, greatly speeding issue resolution and increasing end-user satisfaction. Since its inception, Bomgar has grown into a global organization with more than 5,500 customers across 65 different countries. 

Customers including 44 of the top 100 U.S. Universities and nearly half of the top 20 IT Outsourcers have found IT relief with the Bomgar solution. Its unmatched security and scalability features have also made Bomgar the choice for 41 of the 50 U.S. State Governments and nine of the 15 Executive Departments of the U.S. Federal Executive Branch. 

“It’s an honor for Bomgar to again be recognized as one of the world’s largest software and services providers by Software Magazine,” said Joel Bomgar, founder and CEO at Bomgar. “Our company’s sole focus is on making tech support easier, more efficient and secure for both support agents and end-users. Bomgar’s continuous growth is a testament to the quality products and services our team delivers every day.”

The 2011 Software 500 ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2010. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
