SAN MATEO, Calif. -- November 12, 2012

Keynote® Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ:KEYN), the global leader in mobile and web
cloud testing & monitoring, today announced that 21st Century Insurance is
using Keynote Internet Testing Environment (KITE), Keynote Transaction
Perspective®, and Keynote Performance Insights to ensure that customers
nationwide receive uniformly high performance and availability from its
21st.com customer-facing website.

“Auto insurance is an extremely competitive marketplace, so providing an
excellent customer experience on our site is critical. Keynote gives us peace
of mind knowing that our site is available and performing well for our
customers, regardless of their geographic location—and that if there’s a
problem we’ll be alerted quickly,” said Aaron Shaffer, Web analytics manager
at 21st Century. “We’ve also had the unexpected benefit of being able to
understand the latency of third-party content on our site. If there’s a
problem, we can identify it, inform the vendor, and remove their tag from our
site until they get the problem fixed.”

21st Century uses KITE to develop test scripts and Transaction Perspective to
simulate key business transactions at regular intervals from multiple
geographic locations nationwide to monitor availability and performance on an
ongoing basis. Keynote Performance Insights helps the company update their
test measurements, interpret performance trends and optimize the site based on
ongoing test data.

“For us, one of the biggest advantages of working with Keynote is that they
not only provide monitoring products but also consulting services,” said
Shaffer. “Keynote consultants enable us to improve our test scripts on an
ongoing basis and provide insight into the data to better optimize our site
for customers and prospects alike.”

“Many customers like 21st Century find that customer-facing websites are a
critical sales and support channel. Excellent performance and availability of
these sites from any customer location is critical to delivering the best
possible customer experience,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product
management and corporate development at Keynote. “Keynote solutions were
developed specifically to enable companies like 21st Century to optimize their
site in order to deliver top-notch performance and quickly troubleshoot and
fix any problems that may occur — regardless of whether the site problem is
under the customer’s direct control or due to content being served by a
third-party provider.”
