Uplogix, a provider of next-generation secure remote management
solutions, announced that it has gained significant market share over
the last 12 months with a 133 percent percent increase in customer
adoption of its family of remote management solutions.

Financial services, energy, healthcare and retail sectors across the
U.S. and EMEA have been the strongest adopters. Uplogix credits
security and compliance pressures, rising IT support costs, and legacy
IT infrastructures as key market drivers. By offering the first
comprehensive platform that integrates persistent connectivity, virtual
administration, and secure management capabilities for distributed IT
infrastructures, Uplogix is defining a new technology approach to the
long-standing burden of managing remote offices and data centers.

"IT staffs must manage a growing number of remote locations without
increased headcounts. With 11 percent annual growth in the number of
branch offices, it's imperative for them to have both local and
centralized management tools to help deliver consistent and
cost-effective application performance over the WAN," says Robin
Gareiss, executive vice president of Nemertes Research. "In our
research, the more sophisticated IT executives who run 'aggressive' IT
organizations consistently place 'automated problem/resolution' as a
key item on their wish lists. They want tools that replace manual
processes for maintenance and recovery with automation. We expect a
growing number of IT staffs to look for these capabilities."

ADESA, a provider of wholesale vehicle auctions and related vehicle
redistributed services, recently deployed Uplogix to manage its network
device activity across 100+ remote offices and data centers, to ensure
its online and onsite auction markets are not affected by outages.
ADESA has experienced enhanced network performance, minimized its
management burden, and reduced network support costs across its IT
infrastructure spanning 20 U.S. states and Canada.

Remotely managing our IT devices across a range of locations with a
limited support staff was painfully time-consuming and costly, creating
a burden that made it more challenging to focus on other critical IT
responsibilities, said Chris Roberts, network and security manager,
ADESA. Uplogix has one of the few solutions I have purchased and
deployed in my career that actually performs as advertised. My team
took it out of the box, plugged it in, and it just worked.

We have seen a steady increase in remote management technology spending
over the last year, and expect it to continue through 2008 due to
pressing initiatives such as compliance and security, said Tom Goldman,
CEO, Uplogix. We are also seeing our solution becoming a key component
to enterprise networking, which tells us we are relieving a pain point
that has long been viewed as unsolvable. Uplogix remains dedicated to
helping enterprises transform IT from an operational burden and cost
center to a strategic business value driver.

Uplogix is exhibiting at Interop in New York, October 24-25, the
company noted in a release.
