Ecora Reports Surge in VMware Customers with over 500 New License Requests.

Virtual Machine World Now Under IT Compliance Scrutiny

LOS ANGELES -- Ecora Software, the industry's only solution for automating regulatory compliance and best practices reporting for IT Systems Management, today announced the company has experienced a surge in requests for VMware ESX licenses Co over 500 new licenses in the past 60 days. The notable customer interest in VMware licenses underscores the industry's need to monitor and control system changes as well as device and application configurations in the virtual realm, in the same manner as their physical, IT infrastructure counterparts.

The advent of virtual machines has enabled companies to quickly expand their IT infrastructure and business services without the traditional expenses of acquiring new hardware. However, the virtual IT environment is also held to the same set of government IT compliance mandates as the physical IT environment.

Ecora's Chief Executive Officer, Joe Fiorentino, explains why gaining visibility into the virtual environment is so important; "Each virtual machine contains its own set of hardware elements, configurations and applications that are also held to existing government IT mandates Co the US Government does not distinguish between physical and virtual IT environments when imposing fines for non compliancy. Ecora is the only software solution to dive deep into the virtual realm and completely automate the process of gathering change, configuration and system access data while populating IT audit reports such as HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, PCI, GLBA and SAS-70, to reduce the cost of maintaining compliancy and ease the auditing process."

Additionally, Ecora will showcase its Auditor solution at VMworld 2006, booth 440. Auditor automatically maps all applicable VMware data to pre-installed, audit-ready reports. The VMware data captured includes, but is not limited to:

* Kernel and Memory Information

* ESX Security Settings

* Virtual Machine Permissions

* VMFS Files

* Virtual Machines Summary

* Virtual Machine Hardware Summary

* Physical NIC and Virtual Switches

* Storage Configuration SCSI

* Kernel and Memory Information

* Memory and Swap File Information

* Virtual Machine Hardware Consolidated Change Log Reports

* Virtual Machines
