VSS Monitoring Recognized as Industry's Leading NPB Provider

VSS Monitoring has earned the 2012 Global Competitive Strategy Leadership Award in the infrastructure packet broker market from Frost & Sullivan.  VSS Monitoring was recognized with this independent, third-party award due to its leading technical innovation, differentiated product offerings, extensive customer base, and ROI/cost savings.
 
“The Competitive Strategy Leadership Award is a prestigious recognition of VSS Monitoring’s accomplishments in network intelligence optimization,” stated the Frost & Sullivan report.  “With telecommunications carriers, service providers, large enterprises, and government agencies as its customers, VSS Monitoring is one of the leading companies in the infrastructure network packet broker market.  Enriched features, a high-class and innovative approach, and a strong focus toward collaborations and partnerships have helped the company create a competitive edge over others, signifying its strong position in the market.”

To support its evaluation of best practices across multiple business performance categories, Frost & Sullivan employs a customized Decision Support Matrix (DSM), an analytical tool that compares companies’ performance relative to each other with an integration of quantitative and qualitative metrics.  For the Competitive Strategy Leadership Award, the following criteria were used to benchmark companies’ performances against each of their key competitors:  Leverage of Competitive Intelligence, Execution of Competitive Strategy, Impact on Market Share, Competitive Brand Positioning (brand strength and unique market position), and Impact on Customer Satisfaction/Value.

“In view of the increasing demand for maximizing network and application performance, VSS Monitoring has created a competitive advantage for itself through its strong customer base and comprehensive product offerings,” stated the report.  “The company is continuously creating an edge over the other market participants and securing a leadership position in the emerging infrastructure packet broker space, thereby garnering a significant market share.  The company demonstrates its best-in-class capability to provide a real-time view of packet streams, efficient data-filtering capability, and cost-effective solutions to its customers (with an annual cost reduction per user), unlike its competitors in the infrastructure packet broker market.”

“Receiving Frost & Sullivan’s Competitive Strategy Leadership Award validates the product and market leadership VSS Monitoring has earned, and how its network packet broker appliances are uniquely positioned to address the visibility, optimization and scalability of today’s complex networks,” said Rob Markovich, VSS Monitoring senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing.  “We continuously work with our service provider and enterprise customers in helping them maximize the security and performance of their networks, and it’s an honor for the results of those efforts to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan.”
