Sniffer Technologies introduces Network Application Performance Management tool

Network Associates, a provider of intrusion prevention solutions, announced that its Sniffer Technologies division is entering the network-based application performance management market with the introduction of Appera Application Manager 1.0 software solution. According to NAI, this new solution assures optimal network availability and performance while reducing business risk for deployment and maintenance of mission critical applications.

Through the introduction of Appera software, Sniffer Technologies now provides both network and applications managers with the ability to help manage the application lifecycle from pre-applications deployment testing all the way through post-application deployment troubleshooting.

Sniffer Technologies solutions are architected for corporations, service providers and governments that want to reduce their technology, business and personal risk associated with network and application performance. Sniffer claims the new solution offers the necessary tools to help improve the availability, performance, and efficiency of applications, as well as the underlying network infrastructure. This, in turn, enables customers to reduce the business risks related to the deployment and maintenance of key applications such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Business Process Automation (BPA).

"The core network infrastructure is largely built out for established businesses, with refinements — not wholesale rearchitecting—being the basis for near-term investments," said Eric Hemmendinger, research director at Aberdeen Group. "New investments in enterprise networks are increasingly application-driven, as it is the business applications that take priority on network capacity. With this introduction, Sniffer Technologies is delivering new capabilities to network managers to rapidly identify and resolve application-based issues that materially impact network availability and capacity. The new capabilities provide the intelligence needed by IT staff charged with successfully implementing applications to identify and resolve application-based performance problems."
