BANGALORE: B.V. JagadeeshÂ’s NetScaler, Inc., today announced that United Airlines has selected NetScaler to accelerate the performance of secure, mission-critical business applications. With this selection, NetScaler officially passed the 400th customer mark that has more than doubled the company's worldwide installed base over the past 12 months. This news comes on the heels of a new report from Gartner, which ranks NetScaler among the top three worldwide companies with good revenues in the rapidly growing market for Advanced Application Acceleration Equipment. Innovators like Netscape who are taking market share from the traditional load balancing and content-switching vendors are driving growth in this market, according to Gartner. NetScaler initially gained widespread recognition for its success in accelerating some of the most high profile, and highly trafficked, sites on the Internet. As a result, four of the top five e-businesses in the world now rely on NetScaler to accelerate tens of millions of user transactions a day. Today, Fortune 1000 companies across all industry segments are increasingly turning to NetScaler to bring this same benefit to a wide variety of enterprise applications, accelerating performance as well as managing traditional load balancing and application security requirements. "NetScaler's record growth in the enterprise market has been fueled by several converging trends," said B.V. Jagadeesh, president and CEO, NetScaler. "To begin with, companies continue to extend the reach of mission-critical applications to global employees, partners and customers in record numbers. At the same time, however,they are facing considerable pressure to both ensure the security of all application traffic, and to reduce costs by consolidating data center equipment. The NetScaler value proposition perfectly complements these critical business drivers with a solution that pays for itself almost immediately."
