nLayers InSight honored for its price performance, application mapping and ability to provide quick ROI.

nLayers, the standard in IT service discovery, today announced that it has won Network Computing Magazine's "Best Value Award" in the publication's September, 2005 BSM Tools review. The magazine recently tested five BSM application topology mapping suites on its business applications lab network to determine the impact of outages and changes. nLayers went head to head against Relicore, Cendura, BMC and Collation and fared well, providing the best price performance results and displaying application mapping quicker than any of the other products tested.

“The recognition of nLayers InSight by such an influential publication shows our commitment to innovation, and the completeness of our discovery solutions, in order to provide our end users with the best discovery functionality on the market today,” said Gili Raanan, nLayers CEO and founder.

nLayers InSight is an agentless solution that plugs into the data center and automatically discovers and maps the complex relationships between applications and technology infrastructure, providing an end-to-end “living model” of the IT environment. According to Bruce Boardman, Network Computing Executive Editor/Technology, “nLayers InSight is easy to set up and provides a quick payback, displaying application mapping quicker than any of the other products tested.” Additionally, Boardman states: “[nLayers] InSight is an even better deal because low implementation hurdles will provide a quick ROI.”

Following closely on the heels of its April 2005 "Network Magazine Innovator award," today's news marks the second time this year that nLayers' vision and technology has been recognized and honored by leading technology publications. This recognition further demonstrates nLayers commitment to its customers in helping them create a more efficient, adaptive application infrastructure while delivering immediate cost-reduction benefits.
