Coyote Point Systems Increases Education Market Focus Through Signature Partnership With Blackboard®

Coyote Point Systems Joins the Blackboard Partnerships Program™ as a Blackboard Signature Partner™ to Expand Coyote Point's Position as a Leader in Application Delivery Solutions for Educational Institutions

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - Coyote Point Systems, a leading provider of enterprise-class application delivery and acceleration solutions, today announced the company's Signature Partnership with Blackboard Inc. to deliver Coyote Point's Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) for Blackboard Learning Management Systems.

Founded in 1997 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., Blackboard is a global leader in enterprise technology and innovative solutions that improve the experience of millions of students and learners around the world every day.

Coyote Point continues to be a major player in application delivery solutions for educational institutions around the globe. Learning Management Systems are being rapidly deployed and have become necessary to service the ever-changing needs of both students and faculty. A prime example is the Blackboard Learn™ platform, which allows students to take tests, upload videos, check grades and perform a number of other tasks online. Ensuring availability and improving performance of these applications while reducing costs has become a key priority for educational institutions.

"Blackboard is a leader in the educational marketplace where we also have a significant customer base. Our Blackboard Signature Partnership allows us to provide enhanced solutions to increase the performance and availability of Blackboard platforms," said Jim Puchbauer, Director of Marketing and Alliances for Coyote Point Systems. "The Blackboard relationship also gives us more avenues to communicate our solutions to those educational users who would benefit the most."

Security, performance and availability within the network, across multiple campuses, and to off-campus user communities continue to be challenges for most educational institutions deploying LMS's. As a Blackboard Signature Partner, Coyote Point is well positioned to solve the application delivery challenges faced by administration and IT professionals and help educational institutions meet the continuing demand.

"Load balancing and server traffic management are crucial to the delivery of an enterprise application like Blackboard Learn. A solution that accelerates server performance and provides security for campus systems can only improve the education experience for teachers and learners," said Ted Hopper, Senior Director of Business Development for Blackboard.

Coyote Point Systems recently exhibited its award-winning Equalizer Series Application Delivery solutions at BbWorld®, Blackboard's annual user conference held this year in Las Vegas, NV, and Campus Technology in Boston, MA.
