NuMega Technologies (or NuMega) was a software company founded in 1987 by Frank Grossman and Jim Moskun in Nashua, New Hampshire, USA. The company developed a Kernel mode debugger, now SoftICE, for DOS and the Windows NT family.[1]

In December 1997 the company was acquired by Compuware, when it became NuMega Labs of Compuware.[2] Less than a year after moving to Merrimack, the development lab was effectively shut down on 11 June 2007.[3] In June 2009, Compuware sold the former NuMega products, the intellectual property and the remaining staff to a UK-based firm named Micro Focus.[4]

Mark Russinovich, an IT professional, started his career at NuMega co-writing with Bryce Cogswell the software NTFSDOS, Filemon and RegMon.[1]
