Heroix, a leading provider of application performance and network monitoring software, today announced continued revenue growth from its Longitude® application and IT infrastructure monitoring software.

Companies know they can improve the bottom line with application performance monitoring and SLA reporting, but they are scrutinizing costs more carefully.

The notable third quarter results came on the heels of a record breaking second quarter, in which the agentless monitoring and reporting software racked up a 104% increase over Q2 of 2007. Heroix executives attribute the continued market penetration to Longitude's agentless architecture, which provides comprehensive application performance and network monitoring and reporting without the expense, complexity, system overhead, or management headache associated with agents running on every server.

"Longitude's lower acquisition costs, easier deployment, and quicker time to value have increasingly become competitive advantages as IT organizations tighten their belts," said Heroix President Rick Lane, referring to recent reports of companies trimming IT employment in response to worsening economic conditions (U.S. IT Jobs Dip 2% As Downturn Hits, Information Week, October 3, 2008). "Companies know they can improve the bottom line with application performance monitoring and SLA reporting, but they are scrutinizing costs more carefully."

Longitude has been cited by numerous IT reviewers and publications for its technical excellence and ease of use. The software package was awarded "Best of the Tests" by Network World Magazine, and was named a finalist for awards from Windows IT Pro Magazine and Redmond Magazine. Redmond reviewer Rick Butler judged Longitude's installation to be "almost obscenely easy ... With many utilities, you'll have to spend time installing the tool and then rolling out the agents to manage your target population. With Longitude, you're done in about 10 minutes."

Heroix offers a 14-day free trial of Longitude as well as an online Flash demo. All Longitude packages are available now. Longitude may be purchased online at http://www.heroix.com/store . Please visit http://www.heroix.com or call 800-229-6500 or 781-848-1701 for Longitude pricing.
