BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Empirix® Inc. announced today that it has been named to the SD Times 100 for 2007. The 5th annual SD Times 100, published in the June 1, 2007 issue of SD Times, recognizes the software industry's top leaders, innovators and influencers across 10 separate industry segments. The winners consist of companies, organizations and individuals that have most broadly "set the agenda" for software development managers, developers, and the industry through leadership and innovation over the past year.

According to the SD Times 100 award citation, "If there's a way to simplify Web application testing, chances are Empirix has thought of it. Its point-and-shoot functional, regression and performance test and monitoring tools lead the way."

Thousands of organizations have chosen Empirix to help ensure application quality and performance throughout the application lifecycle. Empirix was recognized by SD Times in the "Test & Q/A" category for the following offerings:

--  e-TEST® suite, for pre-deployment testing (including
    functional/regression testing, performance testing and test process
    management); and
--  OneSight®, for post-deployment monitoring in production
    environments.
    
"The winners of this year's SD Times 100 awards have demonstrated their leadership in shaping the software development industry," said David Rubinstein, Editor-in-Chief of SD Times. "We took into account each nominee's products and services, its reputation among development managers, and the new ideas it brought out. These select individuals and organizations are the ones we've identified as helping to move the art of development forward."

"We're pleased and proud to have been recognized as a member of the prestigious SD Times 100 for 2007," said Larry Timm, Empirix Vice President and General Manager of the Web Business Unit. "I greatly appreciate the effort that the judges made to look at what we're doing to make QA and IT/operations professionals more productive and effective. That is our number one objective, and we will continue to push forward in new and innovative ways. Our QAZone community portal, launched earlier this year, is a great example of that spirit as it enables users to communicate and collaborate in delivering higher quality applications. We look forward to releasing more exciting products and services later this year."
