PresiNET Selects AVNET to Distribute Network Security Appliance

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2008) - PresiNET, a leader in network management tools, today announced a distribution agreement with Avnet Technology Solutions (Avnet), an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE:AVT), which will be implemented in the U.S. and Canada. Under the agreement, Avnet will distribute PresiNET's TOTAL VIEW ONE(TM), a premium network intelligence appliance.

PresiNET's TOTAL VIEW ONE was launched in North America following eight years of security-focused research and development. The technology provides management with real-time insight into network traffic enabling effective network security, compliance and performance. This end-to-end connection auditability enables enterprises to save money and avert risk.

Issues come to light through detailed analysis enabled by an advanced review function generating high level, multiple perspective reports. The secure portal allows management to 'click-through' multiple perspectives and to drill down to pin point the source of potential network performance problems, security threats, policy breaches and compliance issues, in real-time.

Independent logs create a complete audit trail of traffic and transactions providing management with means to witness immediate and historical network activity without burdening the network. Sensors provide configuration flexibility, system scalability and independent or cumulative reporting.

TOTAL VIEW ONE avoids router or switch compatibility issues, is hardware agnostic and introduces almost no burden to the network. It allows a user, customer, or solution provider in a hosted service offering to see everything running on a network at any given time at the click of a mouse, and can pinpoint the cause of any performance and security issues that may be occurring.

"The reporting and compliance regulations affecting companies today require a security and monitoring solution that provides detailed information about network traffic in real-time," said Gavin Miller, VP/GM, Avnet Technology Infrastructure Solutions. "With TOTAL VIEW ONE as part of our comprehensive software portfolio, we can help our channel partners address these requirements by working together to design solutions that are integral to creating and maintaining a secure network complete with detailed audit reporting capabilities."

PresiNET CEO Dean Pothorin says, "Our partnership with Avnet provides us with a distributor that has a proven track record in North America, and globally. Our technology provides customers with real time network management tools that give control back to the network administrator and a cost savings to the business by addressing risk, security, compliance, and network performance issues. We are excited about this partnership with Avnet and are confident that it will prove fruitful for resellers and customers alike."
