SolarWinds LANsurveyor 10.0 Debuts with Improved Network Discovery and Continuous Scanning.

New Solution Provides Missing Piece to CMDB Puzzle with Affordable, Real-Time Network Topology Database

LAS VEGAS -- SolarWinds, a leader in network management software, today announced the immediate availability of SolarWinds LANsurveyor([R]) 10.0, the first and only affordable, easy-to-use network discovery and documentation product for network managers and network engineers. LANsurveyor automatically creates a true and accurate network topology diagram using multiple discovery methods and integrates the discovered information into a network topology database. SolarWinds will showcase LANsurveyor in the company's booth #1858 at Interop.

LANsurveyor 10.0 is the first product in its class to automate the discovery, topology mapping, documentation, and reporting of critical network systems and components, in real time. These are critical capabilities for troubleshooting network changes and problems, maintaining regulatory compliance or improving network security. LANsurveyor's network topology database also provides a trusted source of network topology and asset information for enterprise configuration management database (CMDB) strategies.

"Complete and accurate network infrastructure documentation is a critical tool for network engineers, and keeping the network map on a whiteboard just doesn't cut it anymore," said Kenny Van Zant, chief product strategist at SolarWinds. "SolarWinds LANsurveyor solves a long-standing problem for our customers -- creating and updating network diagrams -- while also filling the network topology gap in their evolving CMDB strategies."

This latest release of the award-winning LANsurveyor includes more than 100 features and enhancements to make documenting network infrastructure, passing network audits and securing networks even easier, including:

* Real-time Updates with Continuous Scan. Using a LANsurveyor diagram as a baseline, Continuous Scan automatically updates the diagrams and topology database with newly discovered systems. This enables network engineers to keep a constantly-accurate representation of the enterprise, for visibility, troubleshooting or compliance requirements.

* SNMPv2c, SNMPv3, Active Directory, and Other Discovery Options. New automated discovery options include support for SNMPv2c, SNMPv3, Active Directory Domain Controllers, and multiple, disconnected network ranges on a single diagram.

* Automated and Enhanced Visio Diagram Generation. LANsurveyor can now automatically generate up-to-date, time-stamped Visio diagrams to match the current infrastructure. In addition, Visio diagrams now use SmartShapes to store node information within the Visio diagram itself and allow integration with other software, including Microsoft Excel and MBSA.

* Spanning Tree Support. Even more accurate switch-to-switch connectivity is obtained with Spanning Tree support.

* Updated User Interface. Multiple user interface enhancements combine to make LANsurveyor 10.0 even easier to use and topology diagrams even better, including a new Map Filter interface to display the groups of systems desired, new icons, customized map information displays and more.

SolarWinds LANsurveyor 10.0 is now available from SolarWinds resellers, distributors, and the SolarWinds web site at LANsurveyor, which can map any size LAN or WAN, is only US$1995, with 1 year of Support and Maintenance included.
