Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced the addition of its NetIQ® SQL Management Suite™ to the NetIQ® Authorized Reseller Program. NetIQ is also announcing version 1.5 which supports integrated licensing designed to make it easier for channel partners to sell and implement SQL Management Suite.

Part of the NetIQ® Partner Network, the Authorized Reseller Program is designed to provide incremental revenue and market opportunities to qualified resellers. The program provides products, continuing education, training and support to enable partners to successfully deliver and implement SQL Management Suite. The addition of a comprehensive database management solution also allows resellers to compete for new opportunities and build upon their existing NetIQ business.

"Microsoft SQL Server is among the most widely deployed database products in the market," said Mark Marron, senior vice president of worldwide sales at NetIQ. "Adding our SQL Management Suite to NetIQ's reseller program enables us to expand our presence in the database management space and provides significant opportunity for both NetIQ and our channel partners."

SQL Management Suite consists of four applications—AppManager® for SQL Server, DiagnosticManager™ for SQL Server, RecoveryManager™ for SQL Server and ConfigurationManager™ for SQL Server. The comprehensive solution simplifies the management of SQL Server production environments by providing diagnostic and recovery functions, data change diagnostic and recovery functions, configuration management and change history functions. Version 1.5 provides an update to ConfigurationManager that includes support for MSCS clusters and SQL Server instances.
