Performance Monitor and Microsoft Visio 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 03/06/13 --  SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a
leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software,
today announced the release of SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper
(NTM), a network mapping, discovery and inventory solution that joins
SolarWinds' comprehensive suite of network management solutions. 
"We've found SolarWinds Network Topology Mapper to be very useful for
accurately mapping out layer 2 and 3 network topology -- the map
presentation and varied data displays are incredibly helpful," said
John Spanitz, senior systems administrator for Just Born, Inc. "Using
SolarWinds NTM as the basis for our SolarWinds Network Performance
Monitor and SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor maps helps us
quickly provide the visual monitoring overview we need, potentially
saving us hours of time." 
SolarWinds NTM allows IT pros to present more accurate, detailed
network maps for easy viewing and publishing.  

--  Create detailed and dynamic network topology maps: Collect multi-lev
    network information for maps with node icons, colored speed
    connectivity lines, labels and more to provide easy-to-read,
    comprehensive maps of the entire network or of individual network
    segments. Map details can include IP addresses, MAC addresses, DNS
    names, node names and switch port connections.
--  Discover all devices on the network with multi-protocol network
    discovery: Choose from ICMP, SNMP v1-v3, WMI, CDP, LLDP, and VMware
    polling to create a comprehensive list and detailed diagram of the
    network. Adjust representation to show the entire network, specific
    devices, or layer 2 and layer 3 information, and streamline reporting
    with Microsoft Office Visio exports.
--  Maintain maps for network regulatory compliance: Create detailed
    network maps and connections to cardholder data and help meet
    preventative and detective control requirements by displaying changes
    to network topology. Schedule scans to maintain up-to-date maps, track
    switch port activity, find rogue devices, and directly address audit
    requirements for a variety of standards including PCI and HIPAA.

"Network mapping is a vital tool in the network engineer's arsenal, and
SolarWinds NTM provides an easy to use tool that incorporates most of
the technological advances in networking technologies," said Sanjay
Castelino, VP of products, SolarWinds. "We know that IT pros are
responsible for keeping an eye on the network and presenting network
information in a clear, concise manner. We also know that IT pros
have a lot of demands on their time. SolarWinds NTM provides a better
starting point for IT pros to understand their network."
