CA to Acquire NetQoS for $200 Million in Cash

CA agreed to acquire privately-held NetQoS Inc., a leading provider of network performance management and service delivery solutions, for $200 million.

CA is a recognized leader in the management of networks, systems, application performance, and cloud computing. NetQoS' solutions will extend CA's capabilities in each of these areas:

  • Network and Systems Management -- combining CA eHealth Network Performance Manager, CA Spectrum Infrastructure Manager and the NetQoS Performance Center will give CIOs and network engineers and operations managers better visibility and control of critical services in their physical and virtual network and systems environments.

  • Application Performance Management -- by linking transaction views to the infrastructure, CA Wily Application Performance Management and the NetQoS Performance Center will enable a new level of quality of experience, in which the infrastructure is application-aware.

  • Cloud Management -- the acquisition of NetQoS builds on the assets CA acquired from Cassatt earlier this year, as well as CA's organically developed CA Spectrum Automation Manager for dynamic performance-based automation of physical, virtual and cloud computing environments.

"NetQoS customers and partners will benefit from CA's extraordinary development capabilities, outstanding sales force, and global customer support infrastructure," said Joel Trammell, chief executive officer, NetQoS. "NetQoS' solutions will strengthen CA's ability to deliver to its customers service-centric insight into network, systems and application performance--with no visibility gaps."
