Emulex Takes Financial Services Organization IRESS to New Levels of Network Visibility

Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX), a leader in network connectivity, monitoring and management, today announced that IRESS, a global provider of comprehensive financial securities and wealth management systems, is deploying the EndaceProbe™ Intelligent Network Recorder (INR) and the EndaceVision™ software suite to improve the network performance and security monitoring capabilities in its data centers, the first of which is located in Sydney, Australia.

As a premier provider of services and solutions for the global financial and wealth markets, IRESS provides critical real-time market data to its clients and executes trades for them through the IRESS Order System (IOS). The challenge for IRESS was how to grow their overall system capacity, improve their security posture, and continually improve on their service level agreements (SLAs) to their clients, while avoiding uncontrolled growth in the operational costs associated with network and security monitoring tools. Specifically, IRESS looked for a solution that would provide a new level of network security visibility, improve resolution on trade latency monitoring, and allow them to consolidate their network visibility toolset. To achieve this, IRESS selected the EndaceProbe INR and the EndaceVision software suite as the next generation of network visibility tools for their enterprise.

“We selected the EndaceProbe INR solution to not only consolidate our network visibility tools, but also to ensure our customers’ data is transmitted safely and securely,” said Dale Monger, global head of networks, IRESS. “After a very successful pilot deployment, we have begun using the EndaceProbe INR in our production environment and are extremely happy with the results – we were able to increase our ability to monitor trade latency and network security, while lowering our operational expenditures and the complexity of our network management.”

IRESS’s initial network visibility solution included the EndaceProbe 7000 INR in its Sydney data center. The EndaceProbe 7000 INR provides the network data capture and recording infrastructure for the visibility solution by delivering continuous 100 percent accurate packet capture and recording in 10/40/100GbE environments. Additionally, the ability of the EndaceProbe INR to provide nanosecond-accurate time stamps for every packet enables the critical network timing analysis that IRESS required to meet client SLAs on trade execution. IRESS’s initial deployment of the EndaceProbe INR exceeded their expectations, and they now plan to deploy the tools worldwide.

“Today, the network is a critical component for financial enterprises to deliver products and services to their customers,” said Mike Riley, senior vice president and general manager, Endace division, Emulex. “The combination of the EndaceProbe INR and EndaceVision, have enabled IRESS to significantly increase their network and security visibility, while simplifying workflow for network and security operations staff and improving time to resolution for critical issues. We are very happy to provide products and solutions to our customers like IRESS that improve their network visibility, and provide significant positive value to their businesses.”

Emulex Safe Harbor Statement

“Safe Harbor” Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: With the exception of historical information, the statements set forth above contain forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. We expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or changes to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect any future events or circumstances. We wish to caution readers that a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These factors include the possibility that all or a substantial portion of the cost savings targeted by us will not be realized at all or on a timely basis and that the financing and share repurchases implemented by us may not be completed in whole or in part or within the expected timeframe even though we expect to incur charges relating to the cost savings initiative. The assumptions on which the cost savings, share repurchase and capital return goals and expectations are based necessarily involve judgments with respect to, among other things, economic, competitive and financial market conditions and the impact of the cost savings initiative on our customers, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict and many of which are beyond the Company’s control. Further factors include whether changes to the membership of our board of directors will have the desired effect in helping us achieve and implement our business and strategic goals. These factors also include the possibility that we may not realize the anticipated benefits from the acquisition of Endace Limited (Endace) on a timely basis or at all, and may be unable to integrate the technology, operations and personnel of Endace into our existing operations in a timely and efficient manner. In addition, intellectual property claims, with or without merit, that could result in costly litigation, cause product shipment delays, require us to indemnify customers, or require us to enter into royalty or licensing agreements, which may or may not be available. Furthermore, we have in the past obtained, and may be required in the future to obtain, licenses of technology owned by other parties. We cannot be certain that the necessary licenses will be available or that they can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms. If we were to fail to obtain such royalty or licensing agreements in a timely manner and on reasonable terms, our business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. Ongoing lawsuits, such as the action brought by Broadcom Corporation (Broadcom), present inherent risks, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, or results of operations. Such potential risks include continuing expenses of litigation, loss of patent rights, monetary damages, injunctions against the sale of products incorporating the technology in question, counterclaims, attorneys' fees, incremental costs associated with product or component redesigns, liabilities to customers under reimbursement agreements or contractual indemnification provisions, and diversion of management's attention from other business matters. With respect to the continuing Broadcom litigation, such potential risks also include the adequacy of any sunset period to make design changes, the ability to implement any design changes, the availability of customer resources to complete any re-qualification or re-testing that may be needed, the ability to maintain favorable working relationships with Emulex suppliers of serializer/deserializer (SerDes) modules, and the ability to obtain a settlement which does not put us at a competitive disadvantage. In addition, the fact that the economy generally, and the technology and storage market segments specifically, have been in a state of uncertainty makes it difficult to determine if past experience is a good guide to the future and makes it impossible to determine if markets will grow or shrink in the short term. Continued weakness in domestic and worldwide macro-economic conditions, related disruptions in world credit and equity markets, and the resulting economic uncertainty for our customers, as well as the storage and converged networking market as a whole, has and could continue to adversely affect our revenues and results of operations. As a result of these uncertainties, we are unable to predict our future results with any accuracy. Other factors affecting these forward-looking statements include but are not limited to the following: faster than anticipated declines in the storage networking market, slower than expected growth of the converged networking market or the failure of our Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to successfully incorporate our products into their systems; our dependence on a limited number of customers and the effects of the loss of, decrease in or delays of orders by any such customers, or the failure of such customers to make timely payments; the emergence of new or stronger competitors as a result of consolidation movements in the market; the timing and market acceptance of our products or our OEM customers' new or enhanced products; costs associated with entry into new areas of the network, server and storage technology markets; the variability in the level of our backlog and the variable and seasonal procurement patterns of our customers; any inadequacy of our intellectual property protection and the costs of actual or potential third-party claims of infringement and any related indemnity obligations or adverse judgments; the effect of any actual or potential unsolicited offers to acquire us; proxy contests or the activities of activist investors; impairment charges, including but not limited to goodwill and intangible assets; changes in tax rates or legislation; the effects of acquisitions; the effects of terrorist activities, natural disasters, and any resulting disruption in our supply chain or customer purchasing patterns or any other resulting economic or political instability; the highly competitive nature of the markets for our products as well as pricing pressures that may result from such competitive conditions; the effects of changes in our business model to separately charge for software; the effect of rapid migration of customers towards newer, lower cost product platforms; transitions from board or box level to application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) solutions for selected applications; a shift in unit product mix from higher-end to lower-end or mezzanine card products; a faster than anticipated decrease in the average unit selling prices or an increase in the manufactured cost of our products; delays in product development; our reliance on third-party suppliers and subcontractors for components and assembly; our ability to attract and retain key technical personnel; our ability to benefit from our research and development activities; our dependence on international sales and internationally produced products; changes in accounting standards; and any resulting regulatory changes on our business. These and other factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements and are discussed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, under the caption “Risk Factors.”
