Solera Networks Named a CRN Top 25 Coolest Emerging Vendor

Company's DS Series™ Appliances and DeepSee™ Software Take Network Visibility, Security and Performance to a New Level -- World's First Search Engine for Data in Motion

LINDON, UT--(Marketwire - July 2, 2008) - Solera Networks today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a CRN Emerging Tech vendor and named as one of the "25 Coolest Emerging Vendors." Companies are honored by CRN based on a combination of innovative products and a robust commitment to the channel. CRN's Emerging Tech list recognizes companies that are delivering high margins for solution providers through pioneering and easy-to-use technology not offered by the industry giants.

Solera Networks is increasingly gaining recognition for its innovative new solutions that provide network visibility for network security and network systems management. With the ever-increasing amount of data moving through networks of physical systems and virtualized environments, Solera Networks' products provide complete visibility for all 'data in motion.'

The Solera DS Series™ appliances capture an unabridged record of all network traffic across all networking environments, from physical to virtual, at speeds up to 10 Gbps. Additionally, Solera DeepSee™ is the first search engine for data in motion that provides both IT personnel and business executives the ability to search, locate, and reconstruct specific network traffic in an intuitive, web-like search format. DeepSee is deployed in conjunction with Solera DS Series appliances to provide complete network visibility, enabling customers to actively search all network traffic and quickly resolve security, management and compliance issues.

CRN noted that its annual list of Emerging Tech Vendors have their finger on the pulse of what customers want and they are able to deliver it faster, better and cheaper than most of the industry giants. Solera Networks was singled out for its innovations around the convergence of network security and systems management.

"New and innovative vendor partners can help spur profitable ideas that solution providers can use to build revenue and customer loyalty," said Robert C. Demarzo, senior vice president and editorial director, Everything Channel. "The CRN Emerging Tech list is where solution providers go to find these promising new vendors."

Vendors who make the list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate that its direct sales mix is trending down as evidenced by the company's revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation, and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.
