Symantec Adds Dashboard

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced the expansion of its end-to-end Application Performance Management
(APM) solution, which proactively monitors, analyzes and diagnoses performance and availability bottlenecks that impact business-critical applications. Symantec's new Application Service Dashboard allows IT organizations to easily customize Symantec i3 performance and service-level metrics via a single, portal-based dashboard, enabling IT staff members to maximize their efficiency in supporting today's multi-tier business applications. Symantec also announced enhancements to Symantec Insight Inquire, a monitoring solution designed to track availability and performance of critical Web applications.

These products provide a strong complement to the Symantec i3 product family, which tightly integrates the collection, correlation, and performance tuning advice relevant to the performance of multi-tier enterprise applications. Symantec's APM solution is a key component of the Symantec Data Center Foundation, an integrated family of data protection, storage management, server management, and application performance management solutions.

"IT organizations are under pressure to meet stringent service level agreements for application availability and performance, while being squeezed to hold down head count and costs," said Richard L. Ptak, a principal analyst with Ptak, Noel and Associates. "Symantec's comprehensive APM solution, which now includes the Application Service Dashboard and enhancements to Insight Inquire, provides customers with an integrated, end-to-end view of application performance and availability across the network."
