Austin, Texas and Nuremberg, Germany (July 23, 2013) - Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, today announced the debut of "My PRTG Sensor," a monthly contest to recognize the most creative and/or unusual deployments of PRTG Network Monitor. Open to PRTG users worldwide and judged by a Paessler jury, the campaign will award one customer each month between July and October, 2013 with a prize for the most interesting use of Paessler's flagship product.

"Monitor an orchard? A ski resort? A ghost train? These are the kinds of remarkable PRTG Network Monitoring deployments we want to hear about," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Paessler AG. "IT networks are a part of some very unusual and unexpected commercial environments. PRTG Network Monitor is currently installed in some 200,000 systems around the world-and we're looking forward to uncovering the ones that fire the imagination."

PRTG Network Monitor can be used in companies of any size to monitor IT equipment and network performance. In addition to conventional IT infrastructure, the monitoring solution finds its way into some very novel places such as air races, weather forecasting stations and poultry farms. These are the kinds of deployments "My PRTG Sensor" seeks to identify.

PRTG Network Monitor users can enter the contest by submitting their description to [email protected]. Each month for the next four months, a Paessler jury will select a winner. Everyone who sends in a description of their monitoring scenario has a chance of winning a prize: a GoPro camera in July; a Nexus Tablet 7 in August, an Apple TV box in September, and a X-mini II speaker system with headphones in October.
