NETSCOUT's Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology continuously monitors the service delivery environment to identify performance issues and provides insight into network-based security threats, helping teams to quickly resolve issues that can cause business disruptions or impact user experience. NETSCOUT delivers unmatched service visibility and protects the digital infrastructure that supports our connected world. " (5/11/2018)
  • 2. Royal Bank of Canada analysts commented, "We think the company likely has about 100-125 employees and had cumulatively raised about $50mm of capital (Crunchbase). FY19 revenue to gain but margin will likely come under pressure. Current consensus is looking for about 50bps of margin expansion and 16% revenue growth in FY19. We think the acquisition will contribute a few points of growth next year but given the absorption of over 100 employees, some margin pressure is likely. Despite near-term profitability impact, we like the acquisition as it helps enhance Red Hat’s position in the fast growing area of container management. Based on our field work, most of new workloads are being deployed on containers with Red Hat showing up as a leader among commercial vendors of the technology." (1/30/2018)
