NetIQ Expands Relationship with Unisys to Provide Customers with Service Level Management Solutions

New Offerings Add Performance, Availability and Security Tools to Unisys Intelligent Infrastructure Solutions

Press Release


NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of integrated systems and security management solutions, today announced that it has extended an agreement with Unisys Corporation (NYSE:UIS) to increase the range of NetIQ Systems and Security software that Unisys can offer customers of its ES7000 servers.

NetIQ® AppManager® Suite has been an integral component of Unisys' industry leading server management software suite -- Unisys Server Sentinel -- for more than five years. Under the new agreement, Unisys will license the NetIQ® AppManager Suite, NetIQ® Vulnerability Manager™ and NetIQ® Security Manager™ products, all of which are key components of NetIQ's Knowledge-Based Service Assurance Strategy.

The additional NetIQ solutions will enable Unisys to provide its ES7000 server customers with as many as eight "full solution" software bundles integrated within Unisys Server Sentinel. The integrated software suites provided by Unisys are designed to enhance server performance, availability and security for clients that are building intelligent infrastructures. Unisys will market these solutions as Service Level Management bundles. Initial offerings include Service Level Management for SQL Server, Oracle, Exchange, Siebel, Web (Microsoft IIS), Vulnerability Management, and for Security Intrusion, Log and Correlation Management.

"NetIQ's Knowledge-Based Service Assurance strategy and products are a natural extension to Unisys' ES7000s and the Unisys Server Sentinel software suite," said David Ehrlich, senior vice president, Marketing and chief strategy officer. "We are confident that by extending our relationship with Unisys to include our compliance and security products, customers will realize greater benefits from the synergies of our combined offerings, including the ability to deal with a single source for their data center management software solutions."

Unisys server technology is a key component in its push to help clients establish secure business operations by reducing complexity and tying technology closer to the processes that are integral to the success of their business.

"The service level management features of NetIQ's software make what is already the world's most scalable Intel-based server also one of the best managed," said Mark Feverston, Unisys director of enterprise server strategy. "Increasing the self-healing and predictive health capabilities of the ES7000 creates a more intelligent infrastructure for our clients."
