Added-Asset has assisted Netscout (USA) for a number of years from London and more recently from South Africa.  As a Nasdaq listed company, Netscout needs access to market opportunities and high-level executives in other blue-chip organisations.  Added-Asset has been a tremendous partner in developing these relationships.
