Quest Software looks to the SMB market by offering its Foglight network management software as a free download to companies that manage 100 or fewer nodes with the software.

As reported by Tech Target, by making Foglight free for managing 100 or fewer nodes, Quest is trying to take a bite out of rival SolarWinds' business. Quest Software traditionally sold database management and systems management software, but acquired its Foglight network management software when it bought startup PacketTrap in 2009.

 


"IT management vendor Quest Software announced that it will offer its Foglight network management software as a free download to companies that manage 100 or fewer nodes with the software.

"In small and midsized companies, many aspects of network management software have become commoditized, so making Foglight free to companies that monitor fewer than 100 switches, routers and hubs seemed appropriate, said Steve Goodman, Quest's vice president and general manager for network management technology."
