WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 20, 2017-- NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC., (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of business assurance, a powerful combination of service assurance, cybersecurity, and business intelligence solutions, today announced its ongoing support for a nonprofit organization providing financial coaching for low-income women. NETSCOUT has been a corporate partner to Budget Buddies, Inc. since 2011, when Nicole Nguyen, director, lead employment counsel at NETSCOUT, joined the Budget Buddies Board of Directors shortly after its inception. Catherine Jenkins, engineering manager at NETSCOUT, joined the Budget Buddies Board of Directors in 2012 and currently serves as board president.

As part of its involvement with this local non-profit, NETSCOUT is hosting a luncheon and panel discussion to benefit Budget Buddies on Thursday, May 11, in which prominent women leaders from business, academia, and government will discuss how mentoring contributed to their success.

“NETSCOUT has long been a supporter of Budget Buddies,” said Jean Bua, executive vice president and chief financial officer. “Their model of one-on-one, customized financial coaching helps build confidence for women. Mentoring, whether it’s having someone help you navigate the intricacies of personal money management or a business network, is vital to success.”

“Every day we see the power of mentoring as we help women develop the skills and self-confidence to become financially independent,” says Budget Buddies Executive Director Anita Saville. “We’re excited to hear how leading women in our community have benefitted from mentoring and how they themselves support the professional development of others.”
