SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT Management software, acquired Athena Security in August 2012, adding the company's trusted firewall management and analysis software to our product portfolio, further extending the range of problems we can help IT Professionals solve.
Since our founding in 1999, SolarWinds' (NYSE: SWI) mission has been to provide purpose-built products that are designed to make IT professionals' jobs easier. We offer value-driven products and tools that solve a broad range of IT management challenges - whether those challenges are related to networks, servers, applications, storage or virtualization.
We distinguish ourselves by refusing to accept the status quo established by most other enterprise software vendors. Face it: The vast majority of IT management tools today are difficult to use, expensive, and really do not address the realities of today's real-world IT management challenges. We do not think enterprise software has to be as complicated as it's made out to be.
At SolarWinds, we are fanatical about putting our users first in everything we do. We strive every day to deliver powerful functionality that is easy to use with one of the fastest and longest lasting ROIs in the market.
Our approach is to deliver "unexpected simplicity" and redefine the expectations IT Pros have for enterprise software.
