    August 30, 2004

Emprisa Networks today announced a strategic partnership with InfoSystems.

InfoSystems will resell Emprisa’s E-NetAware Network Configuration Management (NCM) solution as part of its standard network service offerings enabling customers to benefit from greater control over their network infrastructure by minimizing the risks associated with network configuration change errors.

“IT departments are challenged to maintain the highest levels of network availability and to minimize the performance and security risks that plague every network. E-NetAware is an easy to use, easy to deploy solution that provides users with a tool for automating and enforcing rules-based configuration change policies,” stated Clay Hales, president, InfoSystems. “We are pleased to partner with Emprisa Networks and include E-NetAware as part of our network integration solutions. As a premier IBM business partner, our IBM Tivoli customers will be able to benefit from this complementary solution that adds value to products such as NetView and Enterprise Console.”

E-NetAware simplifies the management of configuration changes across large, multi-vendor enterprise networks. E-NetAware maintains a central repository of configuration data, which it uses to automatically correlate specific configuration changes with network outages and other events in real time. In the event of anomalies, the product can automatically roll back a given device to a known, trusted configuration. Users can monitor configurations, make changes and monitor network incidents from a single dashboard application.

“Configuration management has been applied to other areas of the data center with success. E-NetAware enables organizations to apply these same principles to their network infrastructure and benefit from instantaneous access to configuration change data which translates to faster problem resolution,” stated Sherrie L. Woodring, president and CEO, Emprisa Networks. “We are pleased to partner with InfoSystems and offer E-NetAware as a best-of-breed solution for customers looking to automate network configuration change, improve network availability and security, and verify compliance with regulatory standards or internal best practices.”
