Austin, Texas, UNITED STATES

AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced it maintains its position as a Challenger for the fourth year in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics1.

“We believe SolarWinds’ position in the Challengers’ Quadrant in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant is a recognition of our 20-year commitment to disrupting the status quo that technology professionals have been forced to accept,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products, SolarWinds. “We’re proud to be the only challenger this year, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We continue to focus on what matters to our customers: providing them with network management software that solves IT management problems the way tech pros want them solved.”

“By listening to our customers and the over 150,000 registered members of our THWACK® community who are asking for simpler solutions to today’s challenges, we’ve made significant investments in scalability in the last year to help buyers looking to displace their complex, legacy solutions,” Pfister continued.

Over 275,000 customers worldwide use SolarWinds® IT management software, which enables IT professionals to identify and address a complete range of hybrid IT infrastructure performance issues. Advancements in SDN monitoring support and expanded anomaly detection capabilities are designed to provide deeper visibility into network environments.
