SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Net Optics, Inc., the leading provider of Total Application and Network Visibility solutions, today announced a year of unprecedented innovation that firmly solidified the company's foothold in the Application-Aware NPM market while expanding its leading role in the Network Packet Broker and Tap technology spaces. In 2012, the company expanded its global footprint in Asia-Pac and South America, redefined Network Monitoring with the launch of a new total visibility and control platform, introduced the first Tap to break the 100GB barrier, enhanced the Phantom Virtualization Tap to support new hypervisors, and developed innovative application and network visibility solutions.
"For Net Optics, 2012 was a year of strategic expansion and positioning as we continue to align our vision to the demands of the marketplace," said Eldad Matityahu, Founder and Chairman of the Board. "Key partnerships drove continued global expansion, the launch of Spyke and appTap closed a gap in the market by providing SMBs and branch offices with an accessible AA-NPM solution, and the introduction of our total visibility platform confirmed our position as a pioneer and leader in the network visibility market."
The company's achievements earned accolades with several major industry awards, including Inc. Magazine's Top 500/5000, Silicon Valley Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private Companies list, and the California Council for Excellence CAPE Award. Net Optics' CEO, Bob Shaw, was also invited by Red Herring to keynote at the Global and North America conferences, sharing insights to building a successful global technology company with CEOs of the "Top 100" award recipients.
Expanding its offerings in the Network and Application Intelligence space, Net Optics introduced Spyke, which enables companies to monitor their entire network, including the critical application layer, and provides VoIP monitoring, NetFlow Generation and Monitoring, and real-time application and network monitoring. With Spyke, small and medium size businesses can finally afford a solution that unites Performance Management with Intelligent Access and enterprises can deploy Spyke in tandem with existing performance and availability solutions to plug visibility holes in their infrastructure.
The company also released Flex Tap -- the first tap on the market to reach the 100G milestone. Additionally, Net Optics introduced the Phantom HD Virtual 2.0, the first virtual tool-agnostic monitoring and access solution for remote rapid deployments in virtualized data center and private cloud computing environments.
In 2012, Net Optics was named to Inc. Magazine's Top 500/5000 Fastest Growing Companies list for the third consecutive year, as well as Silicon Valley Business Journal's Fastest Growing Private Company list. Net Optics also won Network Products Guide Hot Companies and Best Products Awards. Spyke earned finalist recognition for Best of Interop in the Management, Monitoring and Testing award category and xBalancer won Best of Interop in the security solutions category (represented by an OEM partner).
Company Growth and Strategic Partnerships
In 2012, Net Optics surpassed the $300 million revenue mark and continued its global expansion. The company formed distribution partnerships with ApliDigital in Brazil and RDT in the Middle East. Net Optics solutions are deployed by 85 percent of the Fortune 100 companies and by 50 percent of the Fortune 500. In 2012, the company increased its workforce to 140 employees worldwide.
"Our 'Customer First' philosophy continues to drive business decisions, as we aim to balance top notch customer service with cutting edge reliable solutions offering total visibility on premise, in the private cloud, and remote branch offices," said Shaw.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
