Press Release

CAMBRIDGE, MA and SAN JOSE, CA

Akamai Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKAM), a provider of products and services that enable the world's leading enterprises and government agencies to extend and control their e-business infrastructure, and NetIQ Corporation (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced an expanded partnership designed to meet the growing demand for comprehensive, Web analytics software and services.

The expanded agreement enables Akamai to broaden its existing SiteWise Web analysis offering, a hosted service powered by WebTrends Live, by adding WebTrends software products to their portfolio including WebTrends Reporting Center, WebTrends Intelligence Suite and Data Collection Server. As a result, Akamai customers can choose between a hosted service or a software solution, thus enabling the flexibility and control to utilize Akamai as an extension to their Web analysis requirements, or to bring the data analysis in-house, as their business needs change. By taking advantage of WebTrends Web analytics, customers will gain insight into the behavioral patterns of their Web site visitors to drive more intelligent business decisions and ultimately achieve competitive advantage.

"Having built our solutions on enabling business professionals to meet in real-time with anyone around the world using only a web browser and a phone, it has become vital for us to analyze and measure how our tools and services are being used by our clients," said Janice V. Kapner, senior director, Public Relations, Branding & Demand Generation at PlaceWare. "As a customer of Akamai's, we are benefiting from the selection of the best-of-breed WebTrends software, including Reporting Center, WebTrends Intelligence Suite and Data Collection Server, to enable us to be more proactive in meeting the needs of our prospects and current customers."

"Companies need to know more about how their Web site is being utilized in order to establish demonstrable ROI from their online initiatives. We chose to work with NetIQ because of their quality Web analytics products, and their unique position in the market as the only provider of both software and hosted services," said Mark Vargo, vice president, Global Marketing, at Akamai. "The SiteWise service has been a strategic offering that has enabled us to show the value of those solutions core to our business. We can now better meet the unique needs of each of our individual customers by offering these benefits in software solutions as well."
