Paessler further strengthened worldwide market position

Portland, Ore. June 24, 2008 – Paessler AG, a world leading provider of bandwidth monitoring tools for use on Windows systems, today announced corporate and financial results of a successful 2007. The company’s revenues in the US climbed 27 percent in 2007 on the back of ongoing expansion in the United States and in Europe. This success is primarily attributed to Paessler AG’s resolve to offer low-priced powerful network monitoring software with a clear focus on optimal ease of use.

A targeted expansion of business activities in the United States, Germany, United Kingdom and France is an additional driver. In the course of this development, the sales team has been strengthened and a new partner program for software distributors and system houses has been introduced.

Paessler AG solutions can be tailored to suit companies of any size or industry. Nearly three-quarters of Fortune 100 enterprises use Paessler AG solutions. The company plans to continue this course of success on a global level and to further expand its market position.

“In 2007 we have, once again, had very positive results with a worldwide revenue growth of 40 percent,” says Christian Twardawa, COO and member of the board of directors at Paessler AG. “Our desire to offer powerful, easy-to-use network monitoring solutions has again proved valuable to organizations with mid-to-large sized networks."

“We continuously incorporate the feedback of our customers in the advancement of our systems, resulting in hands-on tools with a high return on investment,” Mr Twardawa says. “This is emphasized by our rapidly growing installation base.”

Paessler’s network monitoring solution, PRTG, is currently being used by more than 200,000 users in 120 countries. Additionally, there are another several thousand worldwide installations of Paessler AG’s other software solutions, IPCheck Server Monitor, Webserver Stress Tool, and SNMP Helper Pro.

An attractive partner program and OEM partnerships are intended to aid Paessler AG in accessing new markets in the future. “There is strong demand for our products in established and growing countries such as Japan, Korea, China and India,” Mr Twardawa says.

CASE STUDY: Professional network monitoring with PRTG

PRTG Traffic Grapher provides system administrators with live data on the current network state as well as on long-term utilization trends. Utilization and resources of routers, firewalls, servers and other network components can be systematically optimized by means of the monitoring tool. To this end, the required data and information are collected from the devices to be monitored using appropriately configured sensors.

“For us as a service provider, Paessler products have a double the benefit,” says Maik Bock, technical director at datadirect GmbH, Germany. “On the one hand, we can significantly improve our services by using them and thus reduce costs and secure competitive advantages. On the other hand, we can recommend these solutions to our customers with a clear conscience and thus offer them added value. The consistently positive feedback of our customers regarding products of Paessler AG is proof of the fact that we are on the right track.”
