    "During our recent successful launch of Eye of the Storm Network Professional Edition (EYE NPE), we spoke with many network managers at small to medium-size enterprises. Not only were affordable and robust solutions important to them in today's environment -- making the most of their capital budgets -- but so was making the most of their time on a day-to-day basis. We created the 'Network Slacker' to help kick-start the conversation and provide a forum for it to occur. We look forward to seeing where the conversation leads."
