Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Ecora Corporation

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Ecora Corporation, developer of IT infrastructure reporting and change
 management software, was named this week to Network World's Ten Start-ups to
 Watch for 2001.  The ten companies were selected based on the innovation of
 their products or services in meeting business needs and challenges; the
 background and experience of the companies' founders and top executives; the
 level and type of funding generated; and testimonials from customers.
     "You won't find any 20-somethings on this year's list. These entrepreneurs
 are focused on the essentials: delivering products, attracting enterprise
 customers, and earning profits," said Beth Schultz, editor of Network World's
 Signature Series. "Like previous start-ups we've picked, some of these
 companies will end up in future versions of the Network World 200, our annual
 ranking of the top public network companies."
     Ecora's agentless software installs on one workstation and reports on
 configuration settings across an entire enterprise. Plain-English reports are
 instantly generated, providing the vital data IT professionals need for
 effective and fast disaster recovery plans, configuration management, IT
 audits, security assessment, change management, compliance, staff training,
 and server consolidation.
     "Ecora's mission from day one has been to develop an enterprise-wide
 solution that enables businesses to automatically discover, document and
 monitor changes in their entire IT infrastructure," said Alex Bakman, CEO of
 Ecora. "We have expanded our product lines over the past year to achieve that.
 With the recent addition of our Documentor for Cisco, companies can now
 document infrastructure, in addition to operating systems, enterprise
 applications, databases and messaging systems. Earning such recognition from
 Network World is a great honor and validates our success in achieving our
 goals."
     Ecora's software is available for Microsoft Windows NT/2000, Microsoft
 Exchange, Lotus Domino, and Sun Solaris servers, Oracle databases, and Cisco
 routers. For more information, or to download a free trial, please visit

     ABOUT ECORA
     Ecora, based in Portsmouth, NH, offers two software product lines that
 help businesses extend their IT budgets and better manage business challenges
 such as disaster recovery, security policies, IT audits, and preserving the IT
 knowledge base.  Documentors simplify information technology by enabling
 system integrators, consultants, IT auditors, security professionals and IT
 managers to build comprehensive plain-English text and graphic reports
 detailing the configuration settings on a system. This eliminates hours of
 manual work, often left undone. IT Auditor(TM) offers all of the benefits of
 Documentor, but adds the ability to manage configuration system changes for
 dynamic enterprises. Ecora offers its products through three distribution
 channels, including a downloadable executable, an in-house application server,
 or as a web-based solution. Ecora currently offers Documentors for Cisco
 routers, Oracle(R) databases, and Windows NT(R)/2000, Microsoft Exchange,
 Lotus(R) Domino(TM), and Sun(R) Solaris(TM) servers. For more information,
