e-business infrastructures

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- The
 launch of a new company with the mission of helping electronic-businesses
 identify risks, vulnerabilities and strengths associated with maintaining and
 growing complex Web environments was announced today.  The company, Cogentric,
 is developing solutions to help e-businesses manage Web infrastructure
 attributes like security, performance and reliability.
     At a time when regular reports about Web site security breaches, crashes,
 and overloads flood the headlines, Cogentric's solutions will help e-
 businesses prevent and predict Web infrastructure problems and security
 threats.  Cogentric focuses on e-business viability -- the point in which
 business expectations are met by the demands imposed on a company's technology
 and Web infrastructure by its customers, internal users and suppliers.
     "Losses related to Web infrastructure failures can be staggering," said
 Jack Boyle, CEO of Cogentric.  "Shortcomings in e-business sites can be
 measured in loss of revenue, loss of productivity, or non-compliance
 penalties.  We help companies identify and manage risks within their
 e-business infrastructures -- before they happen."
     To deliver e-business viability, Cogentric utilizes a knowledge-based,
 systematic approach with the intelligence to identify strengths and risks in
 e-business environments.  By doing this, Cogentric fills the void that exists
 in today's market by bridging the gap between the consulting firms and
 monitoring products.
     Cogentric delivers product and service based solutions that are
 predictive, repeatable and relatively low cost, with built-in intelligence to
 link business expectations to technology in a forward-looking manner.  By
 constructing a balanced and accurate depiction of the status of a company's
 e-business, they also highlight and justify any requisite infrastructure
 investments.
     "As companies make large investments in e-business systems and processes,
 they need to be sure that they are maximizing their customer experience and
 optimizing infrastructure investments," added Bill Fandrich, president and COO
 of Cogentric.  "The challenge today is in the manageability and planning
 aspects of Web Infrastructures.  With an ever-changing business and technology
 environment there is a need to always know whether your infrastructure will
 support your business.  This can only be done via product solutions that take
 a top down view utilizing analysis techniques and intelligence.
     The Company's primary clients include industries and companies that are
 deriving significant revenue from e-business, are making large investments in
 Web infrastructure development, need to validate that their Web investments
 are able to satisfy current and future business expectations, and desire a
 best practices approach to their Internet strategy in order to protect their
 brand.
     Cogentric is headquartered in Portsmouth, N.H., at the Pease International
 Tradeport. The company currently employs more than 50 people.  For more
