"Our success this quarter reflects an evolution in customer thinking - moving beyond issues of network change and configuration management, to more strategic concerns of IT governance and regulatory compliance," said Scott Harmon, CEO of AlterPoint. "Building on our experience, innovation and unwavering commitment to customer care, we continue to invest in industry-leading solutions that help customers transition from the traditional "break-fix" model of network management to one of proactive network governance. For the first time, our customers have a single, integrated platform to address both the operational and business aspects of large-scale IP networks."
