Net Optics CEO Bob Shaw to Reveal Strategies for Growth in Contracting Economic Times at America's Growth Capital Boston Event September 19

Sustaining Its Unique Expansion in a Challenging Economy, Net Optics Is Launching Innovative Solutions That Help Customers Thwart Security Threats While Saving on CAPEX

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Net Optics, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent access and monitoring architecture for IT network visibility, insight and control, announces that its CEO, Bob Shaw, will deliver a keynote address at AGC's 8th Annual East Coast Emerging Growth and Digital Media Conference, which takes place September 19, 2011 in Boston, MA.

Shaw will share insights regarding ways companies can use technological innovation and customer service to achieve continued growth during economic slowdowns. Net Optics' "Customer First!" philosophy has defined the company since its inception with dramatic results. The recent launch of the Phantom Virtual Tap has attracted industry-wide attention. The Tap offers a number of differentiating capabilities -- including its ability to "bridge" physical and virtual networks.

Rapidly virtualizing tech companies are deeply concerned with leveraging their high current investments in physical monitoring tools. Specialized new virtual tools are costly, and the Phantom Tap's ability to send traffic to both types of tools and optimize the physical network brings welcome relief to the bottom line.

"Leading in innovation and detecting upcoming client needs with regards to marketplace changes, such as virtualization, is key," said Shaw. "There are concrete steps companies can take to secure their position. And in tough economic times, when competition is fierce, it's critical for customers to know you're watching out for their best interest."

Net Optics' recent inclusion in the coveted Inc. Top 5000 companies for the second year in a row places it among the fastest-expanding and savviest firms in the marketplace. Achieving 60 consecutive quarters of growth at a three-year rate of 65 percent, the company has shown a rare ability to thrive in an economy filled with unprecedented challenges.
