ProactiveNet Announces ProactiveNet 6.5 for Windows

Updated Business Services Management Solution Speeds Problem Resolution and Optimizes IT Service Delivery for Enterprise Windows Environments

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2005 -- ProactiveNet, Inc., the time-to-value leader in Business Services Management (BSM), today announced the availability of ProactiveNet 6.5 for the Windows platform. ProactiveNet's namesake software solution provides enterprise IT organizations with real-time visibility into how well their IT infrastructure and business processes are performing in relation to overall business objectives. Now, IT organizations can leverage ProactiveNet's monitoring, root-cause analytics, and reporting capabilities with their operating system platform of choice.

"Many of our current and prospective customers operate multiple business units, and some of them leverage both Unix and Windows operating systems within their enterprise environments," said Ajay Singh, president and CEO of ProactiveNet. "A number of these customers have requested ProactiveNet for the Windows platform, as it is their operating platform of choice and would enable them to utilize their existing hardware. We're pleased to announce that we've delivered upon our promise of expanding ProactiveNet to the Windows platform."

ProactiveNet's support for Windows environments also includes Enterprise Adapters for NetIQ AppManager, and ProactiveNet monitors for Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory services. ProactiveNet's Enterprise Adapter for NetIQ enables organizations to leverage their existing NetIQ investments, and benefit from the added power of ProactiveNet's analytics engine to speed resolution of IT-related performance problems. ProactiveNet monitors for Exchange and Active Directory help ensure these mission-critical services are available and performing at expected service levels, so both internal communications among employees, and external communications with customers and partners progress flawlessly.

Earlier this year, ProactiveNet announced version 6.5 of its flagship product, which included a new intelligent alarm management system, advanced resource pool monitoring capability and a completely revamped reporting framework. The new features help executives understand how their technology investments are improving the business, help business unit managers map IT to business priorities, and help IT groups save time.

10X Faster Time-to-Value

ProactiveNet deploys faster, speeds problem resolution, increases performance and availability of business-critical IT services and streamlines IT operations. Like other BSM solutions, ProactiveNet enables companies to manage IT services to meet business service level objectives. However, only ProactiveNet delivers the real-time visibility and capability to link business metrics -- such as online dollar sales per minute -- directly to end-to-end IT services and infrastructure behavior. This unique capability is what enables business unit owners and IT groups to know about, act upon, and resolve emerging IT services problems before end users or SLAs are impacted.

Pricing and Availability

ProactiveNet 6.5 for Windows is available now. Pricing of the ProactiveNet solution typically starts at $35,000 and scales based on the type and number of entities monitored. Quantity discounts apply for multiple applications and additional SLA purchases.
