RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - October 6, 2009) - Netuitive, Inc., announced today that Wayne Jackson will join its Board of Directors. Mr. Jackson was recently CEO of Sourcefire, where he guided the company through its 2007 IPO. Prior to Sourcefire, he was the CEO and co-founder of Riverbed Technologies which was acquired for approximately $1 billion by Aether Systems in March of 2000. Mr. Jackson currently serves as an advisor to and board member of a number of the region's fastest growing companies.

"Wayne is a proven entrepreneur who has a track record of bringing emerging technology companies to the mainstream," said Nicola Sanna, President and CEO of Netuitive. "Wayne's guidance on the board will be invaluable, especially now that Netuitive is gaining such broad industry acceptance."
