NetBrain was founded with the intention of restoring time and freedom to half a million network professionals that often have to work awkward hours doing repetitive labor and trying to code problem-solving knowledge.

Released version 1.0

In 2007, NetBrain invented its first version of software, a computer-aided network engineering (CANE™) solution, that integrates end users’ engineering activity and provides just-in-time engineering analysis. At that time, it was the only intelligent desktop software designed to deal with both technical and process issues surrounding network out-tasking.
