Managed Service Providers Continue Joining Forces With Jumpnode

Ability to Drop-Ship Onsite Appliances for Client Network Monitoring Is Important Factor for MSPs

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - June 7, 2007) - Jumpnode Systems (www.jumpnode.com), the pioneer in appliance-enabled software (AeS) services for monitoring and remote management, today announced the addition of four new managed service providers (MSPs) to the Jumpnode Partner Program. Today's news comes on top of the company's recent announcement that six MSPs have joined the program since it was announced on April 24, 2007.

The newest MSPs to join the Jumpnode Partner Program include:

--  aCoupleofGurus.com (Minnesota)
--  eSecurityToGo, LLC (California)
--  IT Right (Michigan)
--  Emerald Technologies, LLC (New Jersey)
    
"The Jumpnode technology is the epitome of simplicity," said Keith Schoolcraft, president of aCoupleofGurus.com. "We configure the appliance, drop-ship it to our customers, they plug it in and we start monitoring. That's what I call efficiency."

Jumpnode's appliance-enabled software (AeS) services approach to network monitoring uses hardware appliances, not software, to collect, compress, encrypt and transmit monitoring and performance data to a centrally hosted network management application. The architecture provides the low-cost, on-demand availability and maintenance-free benefits of a centrally managed, hosted application, plus the simple plug-in installation of an onsite monitoring device for each of an MSP's customers. And because Jumpnode's appliances have a built-in analog modem, MSPs have visibility into remote networks -- even when a network is down.

"Our innovative approach to monitoring and remote management has clearly struck a chord with managed service providers, especially from those serving the SMB marketplace," said Kirsten Chapman, vice president of marketing and channels for Jumpnode Systems. "These MSPs recognize that our platform is like a Swiss Army Knife -- it's flexible, it's affordable, it's simple to install and use and it's solving a lot of problems for the MSPs and their customers."
