Crooked Arm Opens Eavesdrop Beta to Testers From FSA Community

FileMaker Solutions Alliance Members Can Now Join Program to Test Unprecedented Eavesdrop Server Monitoring and Notification Capabilities

BERKELEY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 6, 2006 -- Crooked Arm Corp. today opened the beta testing program exclusively to FileMaker Solutions Alliance (FSA) members for Eavesdrop™, an upcoming utility for FileMaker® Server administrators that automatically monitors FileMaker servers and generates custom notifications. FSA members can sign-up today to beta test Eavesdrop at http://www.crookedarm.com/fsa/.

"Eavesdrop provides unprecedented assurance that administrators will be first to know if there's an access issue," said Stuart Gripman, founder and president of Crooked Arm. "Never before have administrators had a product that lets them rest easy, knowing if a system or file becomes unavailable, they can be notified almost anywhere."

"Most administrators learn of a server problem when a frantic user calls," Gripman continued. "The user only knows she or he can't open a database, which sends the administrator on a fishing expedition to track down the problem. Eavesdrop corrects that in two ways: by notifying the administrator of a problem prior to the frantic call, and by providing the administrator with details of the issue via custom email and on-screen alerts."

Eavesdrop is a customizable server administrator's tool that monitors the overall system availability, specific file availability and specific account status. Eavesdrop can be configured to provide information notifications to administrators directly on screen, via email or text message. Eavesdrop can also trigger AppleScripts for ultimate flexibility. Eavesdrop supports password protected FileMaker Servers.
