NetIQ is an enterprise software company based in Houston, Texas. NetIQ is owned by Micro Focus International. The company provides products for identity and access management, security and data center management. The company’s flagship products include: NetIQ Access Manager, AppManager, Secure Configuration Manager, Sentinel and NetIQ Identity Manager.
NetIQ was founded by Ching-fa Hwang, Her-daw Che, Hon Wong, Ken Prayoon Cheng and Tom Kemp in September 1995. With an initial focus on performance-monitoring software, the company’s flagship product was AppManager.
In July 1999, the company filed for IPO. A merger with Mission Critical Software in February 2000 shifted the company to include systems management as well as performance. In January 2001, NetIQ acquired Webtrends — which they sold in 2005 to a private equity firm in order to solidify their focus on systems, security and performance management.
In 2006, NetIQ was acquired by Attachmate. After Attachmate acquired Novell in 2011, NetIQ added identity and security products as well as data center and virtualization to their offerings. It was the Attachmate acquisition that led to today’s alignment of NetIQ products into three categories: identity and access management, security management and data center management.
