KOM NETWORKS RECOGNIZED BY COMPUTERWORLD AS A 2011 HONORS LAUREATE In Their "Search for New Heroes"(June 20, 2011) KOM Networks as a 2011 Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change. ?We are pleased that Computerworld Honors Program has recognized our companys efforts to bring about social and environmental change while keeping in mind the technology needs of our customer in a down economy, says Taher Shaath, CEO, KOM Networks. ?As we celebrate our 42nd year in business we feel compelled to share our good fortunes and pave the road for others to pay it forward. We are humbled by this honor and feel privileged to be recognized as an example that will hopefully inspire others to make a positive impact on our environment while giving back to the community.
?When times are tough, businesses need to be more responsible in helping out where they can, so KOM Networks tried to think about ways we could help. There are still large numbers of inefficient, slow, expensive obsolete archive and storage devices being used, said Kamel Shaath, CTO of KOM Networks. ?Our free storage upgrade to KOMpliance will increase efficiency, protect data, and lower liability, risk and TCO; but the opportunity to protect our planet for future generations and feed hungry children today is our motivation. With the broad appeal of the Junk-A-Juke program it has been expanded to include the trade-in of any storage device for eligibility. It is truly a win-win-win situation. Our customers benefit, in some cases saving as much as $200K from their operating budgets. Collectively with our customers we remain responsible to the health of our environment and the future of our children. And most importantly, we are able to help feed less fortunate children in these hard economic times.
