SAN JOSE, Calif. -- NetScaler, Inc., a pioneer in application delivery systems, today announced that retailer Pacific Sunwear (Nasdaq:PSUN) has deployed NetScaler 9000 Series products to improve the performance and security of its key applications. Pacific Sunwear selected the NetScaler 9000 Series primarily for its superior application performance acceleration capabilities, thus enabling faster page loads and transactions. By deploying NetScaler systems, Pacific Sunwear has also strengthened attack defense and cut bandwidth utilization in half by compressing both the dynamic and static content of its site.

"Young people who buy our fashions are savvy online shoppers. We know that our site must deliver a speedy and secure shopping experience to win their business and trust," says Dwayne Russell, director of technical services, Pacific Sunwear. "The NetScaler systems have contributed to increased sales and improved customer satisfaction by dramatically improving site performance and delivering superior security, while virtually eliminating the biggest culprit for lost revenue — dropped connections."

Pacific Sunwear is a leading specialty retailer of everyday casual apparel, accessories and footwear designed to meet the needs of active teens and young adults. The company’s www.pacsun.com site receives hundreds of thousands of hits and processes hundreds and hundreds of transactions each day.

The NetScaler 9000 Series family of application delivery systems represents an emerging category of highly application-intelligent networking infrastructure products. Application delivery is characterized by an integrated set of optimization, security, Layer 4-7 content switching, and secure remote access functionality that is delivered through a single, unified platform. The benefits derived from application delivery apply to all types of applications traversing across the Internet or over private networks to a wide variety of end users.

During the evaluation and testing process, Pacific Sunwear discovered that only NetScaler's devices packaged the application-layer capabilities it needed – such as attack defense, content switching, TCP offload and compression – into a unified device, thus making it a seamless and easy-to-deploy solution for their data center.

"Our successful track record with the top public Web sites in the world has attracted the attention of some of the hottest names in every vertical industry," states Mark Weiner, vice president of worldwide marketing, NetScaler. "Right now, not many companies in the retail clothing sector can say they are as 'hot' as Pacific Sunwear. We are absolutely thrilled that Pacific Sunwear is trusting our products to accelerate and secure the applications so critical to its business."
