Idera Announces Free SharePoint Performance Monitoring Tool

Administrators Can Now Ensure Performance and Availability of Most Popular Content Management Solution

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - November 11, 2008) - In booth #207 at the DevConnections Conference, Idera, a leading provider of management and administration solutions for Microsoft Windows, announced the release of its Pointcheck™ product, a free tool that enables easy monitoring and alerting of SharePoint performance and availability.

The rapid adoption of SharePoint and its important role in an organization as a central repository for vital business information makes monitoring its performance and availability a must. Pointcheck monitors critical SharePoint, Internet Information Server and Windows Operating System parameters, displays them on an easy to read console and sends email alerts to indicate whether SharePoint is down or when certain performance thresholds have been reached.

"SharePoint is a powerful and popular tool for sharing information within companies and because of its wide use it is extremely important to monitor its performance and availability," said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. "We're offering Pointcheck for free to ensure that this important function is available to all SharePoint administrators."

In a related press release today, Idera also announced Pointbackup™, a high performance backup and recovery solution for SharePoint. To read the press release visit
