SAN JOSE, Calif. -- February 21, 2013

NetScout® Systems, Inc., today announced the company is teaming with Habitat
for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley to bring smiles to the children of
soldiers serving in the United States Armed Forces. On Thursday, February 21
from 1-5:00 p.m. PST, the NetScout team will turn its Silicon Valley offices
into a makeshift carpenter’s workshop to construct two playhouses that will be
donated to a local chapter of Blue Star Moms, a non-profit organization
dedicated to providing support for United States Armed Forces, its veterans
and their families. This will be NetScout’s third consecutive year
participating in the program, and the first year the company has upped its
commitment by offering its offices for a “site build” and increasing its
donation from one to two playhouses. The Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon
Valley Playhouse Program has donated playhouses to organizations including the
Ronald McDonald House, InnVision, Community Solutions, Rebekah's Children's
Services, Chamberlain Children’s Center and the YWCA.

When: Thursday,  February 21, 2013 from 1:00 − 5:00 p.m. PT

Where: NetScout Systems, Inc., 178 E. Tasman Drive, San Jose, CA 95134

“Through our Heart of Giving program, NetScout has established a close
relationship with numerous charities such as Habitat for Humanity in the
cities and towns where we have offices. The Playhouse Project is a unique
venture that allows us to directly give back to local families that deserve
our support and recognition,” Ken Boyd, CIO and lead executive of NetScout’s
San Jose site. “Nothing tops the smile on a child’s face when they receive one
of the playhouses we’ve built, and we’re especially excited that the
playhouses this year will be going to Blue Star Moms. Our military personnel
do their part serving and protecting our country, so it’s nice to be able to
do something in return.”
