SolarWinds Highlights Tips and Tools for Managing and Configuring Critical Government Networks at 2010 FOSE Conference

SolarWinds' Head Geek to Address Federal Community With Best Practices in Network Management

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) -  SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software to more than 90,000 customers worldwide, will showcase its network management solutions for the government sector at the FOSE conference in Washington D.C. on March 23-25. 

Josh Stephens, SolarWinds' Head Geek and VP of technology, will present on a range of topics at the SolarWinds' booth no. 3600. Stephens, who began his career as a network engineer with the U.S. Air Force, will cover:

  • Managing network configurations for policy compliance -- Learn how to quickly check the network against federal audits, search for policy violations and execute network configurations to remedy non-compliant devices.
  • Reducing network downtime through advanced troubleshooting technologies -- Learn how top federal agencies approach troubleshooting and leverage state-of-the-art tools to minimize network downtime.
  • Improving network performance via monitoring and analysis -- Learn how monitoring the right information can significantly help improve network performance without deploying additional expensive network gear.

"In addition to the unique challenges federal customers face, they encounter many of the same obstacles as their corporate counterparts when it comes to network management. But, the critical role of government IT systems in securing our country places more pressure on administrators to properly monitor and respond to network problems," said Stephens. "Federal IT administrators need to take full advantage of tools that allow them to monitor network health. SolarWinds sees the FOSE conference as an ideal venue to provide a collaborative setting where attendees can learn directly from industry experts and professionals about the latest best practices."

In addition to the in-booth presentations, SolarWinds' will offer product demos for its Network Performance Monitor (NPM), Network Configuration Manager (NCM), and Engineer's Toolset.
