Packeteer's iShaper(TM) Appliance Proclaimed "The New King of CIFS" in InfoWorld Lab Test.

Packeteer's Unique Combination of Intelligent WAN Accelerator and Traffic Shaping is "Second to None" in Speed of CIFS Transfers; Declared Leader in Overall Performance

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Packeteer([R]) (NASDAQ:PKTR), the global leader in WAN Application Delivery, today announced its iShaper[TM] 400 appliance has achieved an "Excellent" rating by InfoWorld Magazine's Test Center. Rating 8.8 on a scale of 10, the iShaper 400 excelled at performance, protocol support, reporting and value, scoring "9" in four out of the five respective categories.

Reviewer Keith Schultz said in his April 3, 2008 review, "Packeteer's iShaper is at its best optimizing CIFS traffic and shaping traffic on the WAN. Its overall optimization and acceleration is right there with the best of them; its CIFS performance is the best I've tested. Reporting too is top notch, and the single point of administration makes it easy to manage the appliance."
