DENVER, September 8, 2010 – Virtela, the world’s largest independent managed network and security services company, announced today that it has been named a 2010 World Communication award finalist in both the Best Global Operator and Best Managed Service categories.  The World Communication Awards recognize the companies who are driving the leading innovations and breakthrough new services in the communications industry.
