Zabetian, “All of our current Windows-based “Peek” products, including
EtherPeek for Windows(TM), AiroPeek(TM), and our new real-time Expert
tools, EtherPeek NX(TM) and AiroPeek NX(TM), owe their existence to the
success we initially had selling software tools for the Mac platform. Our
ability to adopt and finesse Apple’s elegant UI and fluid programmatic
conventions has allowed us to present complex network data in an
approachable, graphical format.”
