WALNUT CREEK, Calif – April 16, 2018 – The Ikara Group today announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell and support the full range of Savvius network performance solutions to its enterprise and midsize customers. The Ikara Group specialises in helping organisations solve application performance and compliance problems that are often very complicated due to the high volume of transactions being managed by the business.

“Savvius is excited to welcome the Ikara Group as a Gold partner in the Savvius PartnerONE program,” said Steve Dixon, Director of APJ Sales at Savvius. “Having earned the highest distinction in the program, customers in Australia and New Zealand can expect the Ikara team to provide the best quality networking solutions, integration know-how and advice possible.”

“Ikara’s success in the networking and security market is based on its commitment to customer service that aligns perfectly with ours. By working with the networking experts at Ikara and its community, we look forward to developing a strong presence throughout the region, and ultimately helping enterprises of every size discover the value they can get from true real-time visibility into network performance,” he added.

Reuben Bennett, Managing Partner, Ikara Group added, “Many of our customers deal with billions of dollars in transactions each year, which involve millions and millions of lines of data. By the time we are speaking with them about solving a problem they may have, they’ve  generally run out of time to spin cycles guessing at data in order to get to the crux of what’s going wrong.  This means that Ikara’s data execution and technical guidance must be precise and time effective,” commented Reuben Bennett.

“The partnership that Ikara  has established with Savvius means that our customers now benefit from our use of Savvius products to enable them to make qualified, accurate and timely decisions based on expert level data, not just data that’s gleaned from a generalist view.”

“When you look at the sophistication of the Savvius’ products compared to that of industry competitors, you can easily see that the deep focus Savvius’ products demonstrate in analytics development for packet capture is on a totally different level. When it comes to running data in mission critical environments, we firmly believe that there’s no other alternative than using Savvius,” Mr Bennett added.

Savvius offers a broad range of best-in-class products for network performance management: Savvius Omnipeek®, the award-winning packet analysis software for network performance and security investigations; Savvius Omnipliance® high-speed packet capture and analysis appliance; and the Savvius Insight™ micro appliance for network management and security in remote offices.

In June 2017, the company announced Savvius Omnipliance Ultra, a dramatic advance in identifying and solving network performance problems and locating network security issues. Omnipliance Ultra appliances feature Savvius Spotlight, a new technology that dynamically ranks every transaction across the network, making visible the specific information needed to troubleshoot problems and significantly reduce Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR) of network issues.

Savvius integrates with industry leading technology companies to provide customers with a seamless integration experience. Savvius Technology Alliance Partners (STAP) partners include: Cisco, Gigamon, Ixia, Elastic, Palo Alto Networks, APCON, Garland Technology, Network Critical, Datacom Systems, IBM, CheckPoint, Fortinet, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Procera, Aruba, Ekahau, Meru Networks and Extreme Networks.
