Sales Revenue Increased by 100% in 2009 in North America and World Wide

SANDY, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 02/09/10 -- Opengear (www.opengear.com), a leading provider of next-generation console server and KVM over IP solutions, today announced that it saw significant growth and industry validation in 2009.

"We made great strides in 2009 expanding our open source product line so that we could bring better out-of-band management to remote offices and at the same time increase the availability of our products in the government sector through FIPS 140-2 and a GSA contract," said Todd Rychecky, VP of Sales and Marketing of Opengear. "Globally, it was an economically challenging year; however, we feel the development work our team invested in made 2009 a great success and we look forward to continued growth in 2010."

Highlights of 2009 included:

-- Opengear doubled North American revenue as well as global revenue with more than 200 new corporate end users including AAA and MaxGaming, a subsidiary of Tatts Group, Opengear's first million dollar deal.

-- Opengear open source console servers moved into many more government installations due to FIPS140-2 validation and a new 5 year GSA Contract for federal buyers.

-- Opengear increased its product line to help IT managers better manage remote offices with the launch of the ACM5000 product line.

-- Opengear signed up 57 new channel partners and was voted one of the most promising open source channel partner programs by leading channel publication The VAR Guy.

-- Opengear was featured in several positive reviews by leading IT publications and end users, including InfoWorld and PacketLife.com.

"I have been thoroughly pleased with the capabilities of this console server... Opengear's CM4000 series is an ideal solution for both critical out-of-band console access and robust lab management."

Brian Chee

Product Reviewer

InfoWorld

"Budget-beating, out-of-band management. Opengear's all-in-one appliance combines service processor aggregation, serial console, and environmental monitoring at a nice price."

Rick Dimmick

Senior Systems Architect and Network and Systems Management

AAA National Office

"AAA National Office provides managed firewall services to AAA Clubs and needed an out-of-band management solution to the remote firewall. Opengear provided a solution that fit perfectly, allowing secure remote console connectivity to remote firewalls for management for a very reasonable price via the internet or dialup."

Thomas Asaro

Vice President

Linode

"Opengear console servers are one of the most critical parts of our infrastructure. Having Opengear CM4148s attached to all of our equipment gives us the independence to quickly diagnose and deal with issues ourselves, rather than waiting for on-site staff. Opengear helps us with configuration management, out-of-band system administration, and system health monitoring. Opengear CM4148 console servers have enabled us to build a centralized, real-time console message logging system, allowing us to monitor for critical patterns and search console messages."
