CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 17, 2001

NetBrowser Communications and Parsons today announced an alliance to provide mission-critical facility customers with end-to-end monitoring and maintenance services on a 24/7 basis.

NetBrowser’s e-Guardian(R) is a Web-based software solution that helps Global 2000 enterprises, telcos and Internet hosting companies increase the reliability and uptime of their data centers, call centers and other mission-critical facilities.

NetBrowser’s products monitor any brand of any device utilized in customers’ infrastructure systems, such as power, climate control, fire protection and physical security.

By detecting anomalies anywhere, anytime in these systems and delivering precise alerts to authorized support staff in real time, NetBrowser’s customers gain more rapid problem resolution. This leads to reduced downtime and results in higher customer service levels and increased profitability from capital-intensive infrastructure investments.

The e-Guardian product is at the heart of Parsons’ end-to-end monitoring and maintenance service package, called e-Secure(R), which includes: product sales, hardware and software installation, testing and commissioning, 24/7 monitoring, and technical dispatch services.
