Ipswitch WhatsUp Professional Selected by Intelimind to Power Managed Network Monitoring Services

WhatsUp Professional® Enables Intelimind to Deliver Enterprise-Class Network Monitoring Services to Small and Mid-Sized Businesses

LEXINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 30, 2006 -- Ipswitch, Inc., a leading developer of network management, messaging and file transfer solutions, today announced that Intelimind, a leading service provider of network infrastructure managed solutions, has selected WhatsUp Professional to provide enterprise-level network monitoring services to the SMB market. Intelimind uses Ipswitch WhatsUp Professional to extend its core level of network infrastructure managed services to organizations that do not always have the resources to employ full-time network managers.

"Although SMBs may not have access to the same level of IT resources that enterprises do, their networks are just as critical to their businesses and they must constantly manage network activity in order to identify threats and maximize uptime," said Ennio Carboni, director of product management at Ipswitch. "They are becoming increasingly reliant on their networks for crucial business processes as more and more applications are being written for their unique needs, yet they don't have large IT staffs to oversee their networks and, in many cases, rely on part-time IT people to manage this critical component of their businesses."

Intelimind chose WhatsUp Professional after having used other network and application management solutions. The company found that no other solution provided a platform that not only provided a robust list of features, but also easily scaled to match the sometimes rapid growth of the SMBs they service.

"We selected WhatsUp Professional only after learning through experience what worked and what didn't with respect to providing network infrastructure services to our customers," said Mark Voris, CEO of Intelimind. "Our challenge is that we must use tools that allow us to quickly and easily discover and map increasingly complex networks, but also provide comprehensive network monitoring in order to track the availability and performance of critical business systems. Additionally, we are constantly matching our level of service and support to the sometimes explosive growth of our customers' businesses, therefore, we must provide tools that quickly extend and scale to accommodate for that type of growth."

Intelimind's use of Ipswitch technology extends best-in-class network monitoring and management tools to SMBs who no longer need to risk their critical networks because they either do not have the expertise or the resources to take on the task themselves. As these networks become more complex due to the integration of VOIP, security and wireless technologies, third-party providers like Intelimind can now confidently offer their services in managing those networks secure in the knowledge that they are providing enterprise-level services to those that need them.
