WESTFORD, MA: NetScout Systems Inc., a provider of enterprise-wide network and application performance management products and solutions, today announced that it has acquired the business and assets of privately held Quantiva Inc., a provider of automated analytics solutions for application performance management, for approximately $9 million in cash.

The acquisition will extend NetScout's unified network and application performance management solution by automating the process of detecting and diagnosing performance problems before they significantly impact IT end users.

Quantiva's patent-pending technology uses real time performance metrics collected from third party instrumentation (now to include NetScout's nGenius System) to establish statistically expected behavior values using advanced modeling and analytics. When a measurement such as the response time of a critical business application or jitter in a voice call is recognized as being outside of the expected range, Quantiva's software automatically performs further analysis to determine the likely cause.

"NetScout customers have been asking for more effective ways to leverage our rich performance data to directly improve service performance. Their goal is to detect potential problems before they impact application end users," said Anil Singhal, president and CEO of NetScout Systems. "Combining our superior data set with Quantiva's data-driven anomaly detection and Progressive Analytics technology, we can shorten both the time to detect problems and the time to fix them. Although other vendors are trying to solve this problem, their results are limited by a lack of access to highly granular flow-based performance data spanning the network, the servers, and the applications."

"NetScout has completed the task of consolidating performance data from many sources in complex environments through our CDM technology," continued Singhal. "Our next step is to help our users put this data set to use in the business-focused, proactive management of their mission-critical network and application services. We consider automating performance management as a key step toward the autonomic application delivery infrastructure that the IT industry is now defining."
