Quest Software Delivers Solutions to Improve Overall Quality of Messaging Services and Ease Administration of Large Exchange Server Deployments

Burnham, December 14, 2000 -- Quest Software, a leading provider of performance management solutions, today announced Foglight® for Exchange version 3.0 and InLook version 1.4 to ease the management and improve overall service of global messaging infrastructures - the backbone of enterprise communication.

"Messaging administrators are challenged to maintain the messaging infrastructure, manage standards between disparate IT departments, and meet service levels to ensure uninterrupted enterprise-wide messaging. Foglight for Exchange and InLook deliver the toolset administrators need to augment the Exchange network."

"Businesses have come to rely on robust messaging infrastructures to maintain communications," said Simon Pearce, managing director at Quest Software (UK) Limited. "Together, these solutions address the demands faced by messaging administrators in easing administration and help improve performance by maintaining continuous availability of messaging infrastructures."
The new versions of Foglight for Exchange and InLook offer significantly enhanced functionality, scalability, manageability and speed of deployment for monitoring and administering Microsoft® Exchange, Exchange 2000 and Windows NT®/2000 environments. And they feature a "touchless" architecture, which eliminates server-based agents and processes, easing installation and configuration.

Foglight for Exchange offers real-time monitoring and metrics reporting to improve the overall quality and reliability of messaging services. It monitors, alerts and reports on hundreds of Exchange characteristics, providing proactive management of queues, services and client service levels. Foglight for Exchange also features out-of-the-box templates based on some of the largest and most complex Exchange deployments and a web reporting facility, making information available to all team members and management.
InLook helps organisations standardise and manage the configuration of large Exchange server deployments by automating the collection of detailed, server-by-server configuration data. It also conducts ongoing configuration monitoring and offers incident management, which generates downtime metrics and assists in troubleshooting to improve service and configuration stability. InLook’s Web-based reporting makes it easy for users to view configurations and publish custom reports from any location.

Foglight for Exchange and InLook are now generally available, empowering messaging administrators with unprecedented insight into the operation of their global messaging infrastructure.
