Network Instruments Recognized as a Leading Vendor for Large Application-Aware Network Management Deployments

Company Designated Value Leader by IT Analysts for End-User Validated Cost-Effectiveness and Rapid Problem Resolution

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/13 -- Network Instruments, a developer of application-aware network performance monitoring (ANPM) solutions, announced today its Observer performance monitoring platform received the Value Leader award by IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) in their 2013 ANPM Radar Report. The report recognized the Observer platform as a leader for its cost of ownership advantages and comprehensive performance functionality in comparison to eleven other ANPM vendors, including NetScout and Riverbed.

"Network Instruments placed very well in our review of ANPM solutions, ranking in the Value Leader category, by having a broad scope of product features and capabilities combined with relatively low cost and administrative resource requirements," said Jim Frey, vice president of research for EMA. "The solution scored particularly high relative to other solutions for its ability to discover and recognize a broad range of application types, measure performance of both traffic and infrastructure, and provide advanced analytics for effective troubleshooting. System users that we spoke with repeatedly mentioned their belief that the Network Instruments solution was, in their view, the most cost-effective option available for advanced packet-based performance monitoring."

The Observer performance monitoring platform provides a unique combination of network, application, and infrastructure monitoring designed to validate, troubleshoot, and optimize performance of critical IT initiatives and services. Network Instruments has a longstanding legacy as a visionary in the ANPM space, being the first to market with full-duplex 40 Gb monitoring, visibility into virtual environments, field-scalable retrospective analysis appliances, and the ability to capture saturated full-duplex 10 Gb links without dropping packets.

"Our record of continuous growth and profitability has been driven by nearly two decades of listening and innovating to meet the needs of global enterprise network teams in supporting increasingly complex applications," said Charles Thompson, director of product strategy for Network Instruments. "The recognition by EMA as ANPM leaders is a great testament to our ability to consistently deliver cutting-edge solutions that ensure performance of critical IT services across changing environments whether physical, virtual, or cloud."
