  • 21 December, 2004 09:21

<p>Internet access and security, business application acceleration, and other NetCache services boost industry leading solution</p>
<p>Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) has announced that it remains the leader in secure content and application delivery as measured by IDC. According to IDC’s Worldwide Secure Content and Application Delivery report for calendar year 2003, NetApp accounted for 38 per cent of the revenue market share and maintained its position as market leader with 38 per cent of the revenue market share through the first six months of 2004.</p>
<p>As a result of shifting market demands, IDC introduced this market segment to include products that were previously considered part of the CDN/Caching and security appliance markets. NetApp has made significant advances to its NetCache(R) product portfolio to maintain its lead. Over the past 18 months, the company has introduced new versions of NetCache software, continued to deliver the industry’s most robust total solution for enterprise Internet access and security, and expanded solutions for accelerating Web-based business applications throughout an organisation from the data centre to the network edge.</p>
<p>“Today’s businesses rely heavily on the fast, secure delivery of information as a critical success factor and competitive edge,” said Dave Kresse, General Manager of the Content Delivery Business Unit at Network Appliance. “NetCache has consistently demonstrated its strength as a powerful platform to manage access to information for a variety of data centre and remote office services. Our leadership position over the past several years is directly attributable to our continued focus on using NetCache appliances to protect critical enterprise networks from Internet viruses, hackers and other security threats. More recently, we have begun to leverage the company’s data management and application partnerships to enhance the value of our business application acceleration solution. Our commitment to customer satisfaction and strong partnerships, coupled with our continued ability to create solutions that anticipate customers’ requirements, all helped contribute to our strong market showing.”</p>
<p>“Enterprise customers are demanding an easy-to-deploy architecture that enhances control and security of their network infrastructure, end user performance of Internet and intranet applications, and the ability to deliver video content,” said Lucinda Borovick, Program Director, Datacenter Networks, IDC. “Network Appliance is the leading vendor in this market for 2003 and first half of 2004, and has proven itself to be a dynamic and nimble competitor capable of addressing their customers' needs and building a sustained business.”</p>
