NetPro Enterprise Management Reporting Solution Helps Organizations Improve Their Security and Compliance Posture

Business Insight 3.0 Offers Powerful Trending and Analysis for the Windows-Based Infrastructure

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - May 1, 2008) - NetPro Computing, Inc., a leading provider of infrastructure optimization software, announced today Business Insight 3.0, a powerful analytics warehouse for more effective management reporting and troubleshooting. Business Insight 3.0 draws on data across multiple sources and provides more detailed trending and analysis to improve security and compliance within an organization's Windows-based infrastructure -- including Active Directory, Exchange and SQL.

Using simplified scorecard views and easy to read reports, Business Insight 3.0 integrates audit, security, and identity data from select NetPro and non-NetPro products for consolidated and long-term reporting. And, because Business Insight does not report directly from production databases, IT managers can run complex reports without impacting their production environment. Analysis of stored data over time shows trends on compliance, failed logins by domain, group membership evaluations and more.

"In today's organizations, a vast amount of important security and compliance data is stored within multiple applications, making it very difficult and time consuming to correlate and analyze this valuable information," said Brad Hibbert, NetPro's VP of Product Strategy. "And because management applications are forced to purge data regularly to accommodate for volume and performance concerns, trending and analysis of data over time is almost impossible. By bringing it all together in Business Insight 3.0, organizations will improve compliance reporting and speed troubleshooting with historical analysis and trending."

Business Insight 3.0 features:

--  Scorecard views and easy to read reports provide trends on compliance,
    failed logins by domain, group membership evaluations and more
    
--  Single analytics warehouse reduces storage requirements and allows
    data to be maintained and analyzed over longer periods of time
    
--  Comprehensive report library provides over 50 built-in reports for
    audit, security, and identity
    
--  Interactive reports allow you to drill down into report data to pin
    point issues
    
--  User-friendly interface makes multidimensional analysis simple for all
    users, regardless of their business or technical level
    
--  Integration with Microsoft SQL Reporting Services allows scheduled
    report generation and distribution
    
--  Works seamlessly with third party reporting tools
    

With Business Insight 3.0, organizations are able to drive better business decisions to improve security and compliance performance:

--  Leverage existing data investment -- Take the volume of data your
    organization collects and stores, and turn it into meaningful security,
    compliance and performance reports and analysis that everyone can use.
    
--  Understand the why behind results -- See information across
    departments and drill down to discover the underlying causes of how you're
    performing.
    
--  Align everyone with one, reliable version of business issues -- With
    common data definitions and understanding of priorities, you will spend
    less time debating the data and more time deciding what to do.
    
--  Shorten the time to make the right decision -- Timely reports and self-
    service reporting let you see changes when they happen and make the right
    decisions at the right time.
    
--  Meet the information needs of all users -- Flexible, user-friendly
    reporting means everyone can have the right information delivered in the
    right way.
    

Business Insight snaps into NetPro's services-oriented architecture. The architecture enables customers to quickly add new capabilities without the usual ramp time and complexity that comes with installing, training and maintaining multiple tools and point solutions.
