Posted: Mon Apr 27, 2009 02:47:00 PM

As part of its commitment to help network administrators run their IT infrastructures smoothly, PacketTrap Networks ( today announced it has added Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor, as a valued distribution partner. Ingram Micro will be a premier distributor of two of the Company’s offerings, PacketTrap MSP4.0 and Perspective.
PacketTrap MSP4.0 addresses the growing demand for outsourced network management services, driven by the increasing number of disruptive technologies as well as overburdened and underfunded IT departments. Using a combination of remote agents and other key features, PacketTrap MSP4.0, enables Managed Service Providers to offer their clients affordable, real-time monitoring and management of applications, servers, VoIP systems and more.

PacketTrap Perspective, a network management platform developed for mid-market network engineers, is an easy-to-use, affordable solution that incorporates key features that are traditionally included only in high-end, costly enterprise solutions such as performance baseline and traffic analysis capabilities. Both Perspective and PacketTrap MSP4.0 eliminate the need for numerous, disparate point products that make up most of the market today.

This relationship, which will be facilitated by Access Channel Partners LLC, exposes PacketTrap solutions to Ingram Micro’s large network of highly-qualified solution providers. In addition, PacketTrap will have access to Ingram Micro’s vast sales and marketing resources.

"To increase our market share, we partnered with Ingram Micro because they are recognized as the market leader and they offer us the opportunity to reach thousands of their MSPs and resellers," said Steve Goodman, Chief Executive Officer of PacketTrap Networks. "Because our products are developed specifically for the mid-market, Ingram Micro was an obvious fit due to their superior service and support to the value-added resellers that serve our target market."

PacketTrap MSP4.0 features include:

· Panoramic view: Provides a 360 degree view of any network, both local and remote locations
· Real-time performance monitoring: Monitors performance counters for routers, hubs, switches, applications, servers, and applications in real-time.
