"2012 marked a year of significant progress for our company and brand. We believe that the investments that we made to raise systems administrators' awareness of SolarWinds' brand and products paid off with solid growth for many of our systems management products. Strong demand for our network configuration products, in particular SolarWinds IP Address Manager, helped to support our continued growth in network management and helped us to reinforce our leadership in that market. Once again, we believe that the strong growth across all of our geographies demonstrates that our unique approach to solving IT professionals' critical, real-world problems continues to be a compelling alternative to our competitors," added Thompson.
SolarWinds business highlights during the fourth quarter of 2012 include:
•The company completed a year of strengthening its systems management portfolio with new releases of SolarWinds Web Performance Monitor (WPM), formerly SolarWinds Synthetic End User Monitor, and SolarWinds Virtualization Manager. Using SolarWinds WPM, System Administrators can continuously monitor websites and Web applications, including those that are internal (behind the firewall), customer-facing, SaaS, and cloud-based to keep a proactive watch on the end user's point of view. The latest version of SolarWinds WPM extends its application support to include Web-based Java applications such as Oracle forms and those served via the Citrix Web Interface. The latest version of SolarWinds Virtualization Manager includes feature enhancements designed to help simplify the monitoring of VDI performance issues like boot/logon storms related to storage I/O bottlenecks, CPU, memory contention and more. •Throughout 2012, the company used acquisitions to significantly expand the number of systems management problems that it solves for IT pros. Through the acquisition of Rhino Software, Inc. in December 2012, SolarWinds launched its new SolarWinds Serv-U® Managed File Transfer Server and a new free tool SolarWinds FTP Voyager®. SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer Server provides a cost-effective, secure managed file transfer solution with an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface as well as the ability to access files on the go through secure mobile access. The addition of the free FTP Voyager to the company's robust offerings of free tools is an example of the company's ongoing commitment to creating value and giving back to the IT community. •New versions of SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM) and SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) were also released in the fourth quarter, increasing the depth of the company's network management capabilities. SolarWinds' latest version of IPAM combines feature-rich IP address management capabilities, support for Microsoft DHCP and DNS management, Cisco DHCP management and Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA), and integration with key SolarWinds IT management products. •As part of the ongoing effort to more effectively reach, market to, and support users around the world, SolarWinds introduced a new set of localized assets for the German markets in the fourth quarter 2012. The company launched a fully featured, localized German-language website (www.solarwinds.com/de), the German language version of its flagship network monitoring solution, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, and the German version of its most popular free tool, SolarWinds free TFTP Server.
