Coyote Point Systems Revenues Pace Rapidly Expanding Application Acceleration Market

Focus on Channel Propels Record Fiscal-Year Revenues

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- Coyote Point Systems, Inc., the performance and value leader in application traffic management, announced that sales for its fiscal year ending June 30, 2006, were up 35 percent over the previous year. Coyote Point's continued strong growth was propelled by its expanding international network of partners and resellers as the company made an aggressive shift from direct sales to a channel model.

Over the past year, Coyote Point has established a worldwide network of channel partners including leading distributors and solution providers in 19 countries worldwide, such as Ingram Micro and CDW in the U.S. and Canada; government integrators including GTSI, Lockheed Martin and Computer Science Corp; Networld in Japan and Antai-Sec in China. The company's comprehensive partner program includes a new 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.

The worldwide market for application acceleration technology grew 36% in 2005 to over $1.2 billion, driven by the need to centralize and deploy web-enabled intranet applications, according to research vice president Joe Skorupa of Gartner, Inc., who authored the "Market Share: Application Acceleration Equipment Worldwide, 4Q05 and 2005" report published March 21, 2006.

"Coyote Point has emerged as a strong player in the application acceleration market with a product line that offers a customer-pleasing balance of price, performance and utility," said Bruce Deng, General Manager of China's Antai-Sec. "Coyote Point makes it easy for us to deliver load balancing and traffic management systems as part of a comprehensive datacenter infrastructure solution. Our customers are attracted to Coyote Point as a cost-effective and easy-to-use alternative to more complex and expensive systems."

Through the close of its recent fiscal year, Coyote Point has shipped systems to a rapidly growing roster of more than 4,000 midsized and enterprise customers. The company is seeing significant growth in healthcare, eCommerce, managed hosting and co-location, government, education and other vertical markets. Many companies in these market segments have joined Coyote Point's customer roster in the past year, including UCLA Healthcare, Quotesmith.com and Rent-a-Center.com, Inter-American Development Bank, Qwest Communications, AT&T Web Hosting, U.S. Department of Energy, Harvard University and other leading organizations. Customers typically use Coyote Point's Equalizer Series load balancing and traffic management systems to ensure high performance and non-stop availability for their Web-enabled networks.

During the past year, Coyote Point introduced new versions of its Equalizer SI Series with a range of advanced features designed for Web application acceleration, failover and bandwidth optimization.

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 both 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.

"Working together with our growing cadre of worldwide channel and technology partners, Coyote Point will continue to grow our global market presence and serve mainstream users in mid-sized and enterprise-class businesses by delivering unsurpassed price/performance benefits, flexible configuration options, predictable real-world performance and consistency in all facets of our operations," said Bill Kish, CEO and CTO of Coyote Point Systems.

Coyote Point continues to provide the no-frills systems and do-whatever-it-takes service that today's ROI-focused customers demand.
