New Agreement Signed with SCS Networks to Resell nGenius Products to Enterprise and Government Customers in Singapore


WESTFORD, Mass., March 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NetScout Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTCT), a leading provider of network performance management solutions, today announced that it has signed a new partnership agreement with SCS Networks Pte Ltd, a leading provider of complete data and telecom networking solutions for businesses in Singapore, to resell its nGenius® products in that region. SCS Networks is a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore Computer Systems, an info-communications technology service provider that operates in eight countries in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

The agreement will help NetScout better serve enterprise and government customers in Singapore. To launch this partnership, NetScout and SCS Networks will hold a joint seminar entitled "Managing Tomorrow's Complex Networks-Are You Ready?" at the Grand Hyatt Singapore on April 4, 2003.

"With the addition of the nGenius solution, we will significantly enhance our end-to-end network offerings in the increasingly important area of network performance management," said Mr. Tan Goh Beng, chief executive officer, SCS Networks. "I am convinced that our customers will benefit tremendously from NetScout's industry-leading technology by improving their ability to control the performance and costs of their networks, to better assure delivery of mission-critical applications and improve operating efficiencies."

SCS Networks has started introducing NetScout's nGenius Performance Management System to its enterprise customers with very positive feedback. Businesses in that region face the same challenges as those helped by NetScout elsewhere in the world, such as finding ways to assure the availability and performance of revenue-generating and supply chain services, protecting and improving the returns they get from their IT investments, and improving their ability to manage internal and outsourced initiatives.

NetScout's nGenius® probes offers SCS Networks' customers rich and reliable data sources and its flagship management application, nGenius® Performance Manager, delivers real-time monitoring, Voice over IP monitoring, troubleshooting, protocol analysis and historical reporting from a single, unified solution based on NetScout's unique and patent pending CDM(TM) technology.

"We are pleased to begin working with SCS Networks, which has a superb technical and business capability within the Southeast Asian market," said Jim Frey, vice president of marketing for NetScout Systems. "This new alliance enhances our opportunity to increase and build on our relationships with customers in this dynamic region."
