NetIQ Wins SC Magazine Product Award

Chariot Honored in Telecommuting Category in The Best of 2002 Awards

Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced that Chariot software, NetIQ's network performance testing solution, has been named as one of The Best of 2002 by SC Magazine. Chariot evaluates the performance of networked applications, performs stress tests on network devices and predicts application performance prior to deployment or purchase.

The Best of 2002 are chosen from hundreds of products reviewed by SC Magazine throughout the year. Products are judged in five categories — features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support and value. In the April 2002 review of Chariot, the product received the highest overall rating and was said to be "the ideal tool to ensure you have the means to avoid the possibly disastrous consequences of introducing network changes that impact your systems."

"Chariot uniquely enables network administrators to almost see into the future and observe the network's reaction before adding applications, including Voice over IP," said Steve Joyce, vice president of Networking Technology at NetIQ. "To win an award based on a positive real-world evaluation is an honor and to win twice in that situation is outstanding."

The complete list of winners can be found in the December print issue of SC Magazine or online at
