VitalSigns Net Performance Products Hit UK Market

Wick Hill Group, of Guildford, Surrey, is introducing the VitalSigns range of network performance products to the UK market.

VitalSigns software, which includes the Net.Medic analysis package for analyzing network bottlenecks, can monitor, diagnose, correct, and recommend solutions whenever network performance problems are encountered.

"The VitalSigns range represents a truly massive breakthrough in Internet/intranet technology. It's the first range of products that really addresses Internet, intranet and network performance problems from the end-user's point of view," said Ian Kilpatrick, managing director of Wick Hill.

"The quality and appeal of VitalSigns software is such that it is likely to become a key part of the desktop software used by the vast majority of companies in the UK and worldwide."

There are currently four products in the VitalSigns range: Net.Medic, Net.Medic Pro, VitalAnalysis and VitalHelp. Net.Medic can be used by any end-user, from a large corporation to an individual home user.

NetMedic Pro offers similar features, but also has diagnostic and automatic monitoring facilities for the use of IT professionals.

VitalAnalysis is a server-based intranet management product that measures the end-to-end performance of intranet applications. It produces a comprehensive network overview that enables managers to identify potential problems.

The fourth product, VitalHelp, is designed to turn reactive help desks into proactive service desks. The vendor says it can help the desk staff find, diagnose, and fix Internet/intranet and network problems "often before users are even aware they exist."

Wick Hill Group recently was appointed as the sole UK and principal Europe-wide distributor for VitalSigns. The Group also has offices in France, Germany, and Norway, and employs over 120 staff.
