Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems & Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation's Internet Telephony magazine has named NetIQ's AppManager® Suite as a recipient of a 2004 Product of the Year Award.

NetIQ's AppManager Suite enables IT organizations to monitor and surpass their service level commitments with extensive monitoring, diagnostics, advanced analysis and automation of Voice over IP (VoIP) deployments, as well as distributed Windows-, UNIX- and Linux-based systems, applications and server infrastructures. NetIQ's AppManager Suite:

  • Uses a single console to manage VoIP solutions from a service perspective, including IP phones, call servers, voice mail and IP contact center applications, as well as the underlying IT infrastructure.
  • Enables customers to increase service availability of VoIP applications by decreasing recovery time and more effectively resolving root causes of system and application problems.
  • Helps increase operational efficiency by providing immediate insight into VoIP application health and availability, dramatically decreasing the time needed to manage converged VoIP technologies and applications.

"As voice and data converge, the management of these applications must converge as well," says David Pann, vice president and general manager of Voice over IP Management Products at NetIQ. "This convergence was a key driver in moving VoIP management into the AppManager Suite, which our customers were already using to manage and configure a wide range of business applications. Receiving Internet Telephony's 2004 Product of the Year Award validates the success of NetIQ's AppManager Suite in meeting the needs of this emerging market."

"Each year Internet Telephony magazine bestows its Product of the Year awards on companies that have demonstrated excellence in technological advancement and application refinements. NetIQ has demonstrated to the editors of Internet Telephony that its products are committed to quality and innovation while addressing the real needs in the marketplace," said Rich Tehrani, group publisher and editor-in-chief of Internet Telephony magazine.

The Product of the Year Award winners for 2004 will be published in the January 2005 issue of Internet Telephony magazine.
