Los Angeles, CA and Nuremberg, Germany (April 12th, 2011) - Paessler AG, the emerging leader in cost effective and highly functional network monitoring solutions, is pleased to announce the hire of Bill Brown as Director of Channel Operations, North America. In his role, Bill will be working closely with Paessler's existing partners including CDW, SHI and Softchoice. In concert, he will be solidifying relationships with solution providers that cover a variety of industries including networking, virtualization, infrastructure, cloud services and data centers.

"The IT landscape is evolving due to several technology advances, including virtualization and cloud computing.  The opportunity this presents for Paessler, and our channel partners, is that we offer a highly functional and extremely cost efficient method to monitor the entire network infrastructure, whether it's a traditional on-site environment, a distributed model or a virtualized one. PRTG is a tremendous solution that I look forward to offering customers through our valued partners."

Ken Sanofsky, Paessler's General Manager, North America, said,  "We're very pleased to announce that Bill will be joining our team here in the U.S.  He brings a wealth of channel experience and will have an immediate impact on both the development of channel programs and building future partnerships.  We hope this sends a clear signal that Paessler is committed to building a world-class channel program."
