Coyote Point Systems Partners With Leading Chinese Integrator Antai-Sec to Address Fast-Growing Market for Internet Infrastructure

Coyote Point's Value, Predictability and Consistency Drive Acceptance of Server Load Balancing and Traffic Management Systems to Chinese Customer Base

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 19, 2006 -- Coyote Point Systems, Inc, the performance and value leader in application traffic management, announced the availability of its Equalizer Series server load balancing systems in China through Antai-Sec, a leading provider of networking, security and optimization solutions.

"Coyote Point is extremely pleased to partner with Antai-Sec, one of China's premier Internet infrastructure providers," said Jack Irving, Vice President of Sales for Coyote Point Systems. "Working together with our valued partners like Antai-Sec, Coyote Point is making significant sales progress in large and rapidly emerging global markets by delivering unsurpassed price/performance benefits combined with predictable real-world performance across a range of configuration options and consistency in all facets of operations."

Antai-Sec, which also provides traffic management systems from F5 Networks and Radware, will offer Coyote Point systems through its hybrid business model of direct and channel sales. "In a solutions environment, we must present our customers with products that deliver tangible ROI benefits," said Bruce Deng, General Manager of Antai-Sec. "Our customers are attracted to Coyote Point as a cost-effective and easy-to-use alternative to more complex and expensive systems. We already have strong interest in Coyote Point's offerings and several significant customer trials involving large, multi-unit deployments are currently under way."

Coyote Point recently announced its move to a 100-percent channel model and China, one of the world's largest technology markets, is a cornerstone of its global strategy. Coyote Point serves partners and resellers through a comprehensive partner program including its co-branded Partner Resource Center, a single source for sales and product information, technical training and documentation, comprehensive competitive data and pricing comparisons, and other dedicated resources.

"Coyote Point makes it easy for us to deliver load balancing and traffic management systems as part of a comprehensive Internet infrastructure solution," said Simon Lu, Vice President of Sales for Antai-Sec. "Coyote Point is a very partner-friendly vendor and is demonstrating its commitment to the Chinese market with training, support and dedicated tools that enable us to engage our customers and be successful."

Coyote Point's Equalizer Series systems have moved to the forefront of the rapidly growing market for networking technology that optimizes delivery of Web-based content and business-critical applications and are particularly attractive to customers in cost-conscious markets such as China. Independent testing by the Tolly Group demonstrated that Coyote Point's Equalizer E350si, a full-featured server load balancing and application traffic management device, surpassed comparable systems on performance and price, delivering more than 2x greater performance and throughput than F5 Networks' BIG-IP 1500 at less than 40 percent of the price. Tests also showed that the E350si has competitive performance to F5's much more expensive BIG-IP 3400, offering compelling price/performance advantages.

"We founded our company in 1998 to provide high availability and accelerated performance for 'clusters' of inexpensive standards-based Web servers," says Coyote Point Founder and CEO/CTO Bill Kish. "Coyote Point continues to provide the no-frills systems and do-whatever-it-takes service that today's value-conscious customers demand."
