nGenius Creates System-Wide Visibility and Control of Mission-Critical Banking Applications While Improving Network Cost Efficiencies

WESTFORD, Mass., March 20 -- NetScout Systems (Nasdaq: NTCT) today announced that the Agricultural Development Bank of China (ADBC) has selected NetScout's nGenius Performance Management System(TM) to manage the performance and costs of its new, wide area network. ADBC's purchase of nGenius reflects the bank's increased use of the network for strategic business and the importance of assuring reliability and performance of new critical banking applications as they are delivered system-wide.

The ADBC is a policy-led agricultural bank in P.R. China. nGenius will provide a centralized network management solution for the bank -- starting with 36 regional headquarters. Among the new services being rolled out across its new network is an on-line transaction processing system called an 'Electronic Interbanking System' aimed at speeding transactions between the bank's main processing center and 2,300 branches. The bank is also planning to introduce new, on-line banking services for its customers.

"Our branches are widely-dispersed throughout China with numerous network managers operating from those remote locations," said Zhou Zhiduo, chief engineer of the Information and Computer Department, ADBC. "NetScout's nGenius solution gives us flexible, secure access to critical performance information via the Web, anytime it is needed. Having a centralized performance management solution with remote access to real-time information allows us to maximize the efficiency of our current staffing and limit the additional resources we deploy at remote locations."

The financial industry continues to lead in the deployment of mission- critical networking among enterprises, globally. ADBC is among those leading institutions implementing nGenius as a means of reliably harnessing the potential of business applications to create business advantage.

"We are establishing a strong position with top financial companies across Asia and Europe," said Michael Szabados, senior vice president of product operations, NetScout Systems. "For this emerging market, nGenius is facilitating more confident deployment of mission-critical applications by delivering clear views into network complexities and performance. nGenius allows these enterprises to proactively reduce the risks associated with degradations and downtime, and address demands for increased services-without having to spend on excess resources."
