Domotz is the Draper, Utah-based provider of network monitoring and management, device inventory and security awareness. Meanwhile, NETGEAR is the San Jose, Calif.-based provider of networking products.

Domotz says it provides unparalleled visibility of digital assets and data flows. Thus, it empowers users with mission critical knowledge and actionable insights.
