Marimba Patch Management Lets Enterprise Customers Quickly Protect Thousands Of Computer Systems Against Blaster Worm


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., - Aug. 14, 2003 - Marimba, Inc. (Nasdaq: MRBA), the Software Change Management Company, today announced that its automated patch distribution capabilities have helped a number of companies rapidly respond to the spreading Blaster worm virus. Leading Global 2000 companies that have recently used Marimba patch management technology to protect their computer systems against the Blaster worm include Charles Schwab, Albertsons, Washington Mutual, Verizon, Amgen, Barclays Global Investors, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, Capital One, Deloitte Consulting, MCI, MetLife, and others.

Companies affected by the current Blaster worm or who have other security concerns can immediately contact Marimba's security hotline for information about patch management and security remediation at 1-888-800-5444, or visit the company's website at www.marimba.com.

During recent virus attacks, such as the Blaster worm found in many of Microsoft Windows platforms, Marimba's patch management technology deployed critical updates to tens of thousands of desktops, servers, and intermittently connected laptop systems. The Blaster worm, also known as MS Blaster or LoveSan, has been spreading rapidly and Microsoft has issued a patch to address the worm. The worm exploits vulnerability in the Windows RPC (Remote Procedure Call) service and consumes bandwidth while scanning for other vulnerable machines once a PC is infected.

"Using Marimba security patch management, we were able to package, test, and distribute the Microsoft RPC vulnerability patch to all of our global desktop clients in a matter of hours," said Simon Bullers, global platform manager, Windows systems, at Barclays Global Investors. "We have desktop clients in the United States, Japan, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. It's great to be able to turn around this patch in such a short amount of time and feel confident that our systems are protected."

Rapid Deployment to Computer Systems to Protect Against Blaster Worm Marimba's enterprise customers across a variety of market segments have used Marimba patch management to quickly deploy hot fixes and updates, eliminating downtime associated with application and network failures. Marimba's security patch management capabilities automate the deployment and management of anti-virus software and security patches by quickly delivering security hot fixes and updates to thousands of desktops, laptops, servers and devices. Marimba's stateless updating technology allows patch dependencies and conflicts to be resolved during the automated patch installation process. In addition to proactive protection, Marimba's technology can help with remediation of damaged or infected applications and lower downtime associated with virus attack damages through built-in repair, rollback and self-healing capabilities.

A number of large, global companies are using Marimba's software to manage and distribute business-critical security patches and application updates to protect browsers, Web servers, applications, and computer systems. Customers leverage Marimba's existing software change management offerings

to address their patch management needs from a single platform/console.

"The need for security patches - and the frequency with which they're issued

- becomes increasingly urgent each day," said Rich Wyckoff, president and CEO of Marimba. "As security breaches become more frequent and more expensive to prevent, enterprises are looking to automate the rapid deployment of anti-virus and patch updates. Marimba products streamline the delivery and installation of security patches and virus pattern updates to protect computer systems."

Carnival Cruise Lines Implements ON Technology Solution for Remote Management of Cruise Ship PCs and Point-of-Sale Terminals via Wireless Network


Innovative ON Solution Enables World's Most Popular Cruise Line to Create "Floating" IT Environment, Lowering IT Costs while Enhancing Guest Satisfaction

Waltham, MA (Aug. 12, 2003) – ON Technology (NASDAQ: ONTC), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure management solutions, today announced that Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines, the world’s largest and most popular cruise line, has successfully begun its implementation of ON Technology’s advanced software solution. The implementation includes remotely managing more than 4,000 business-critical computers and devices on Carnival’s 19-ship fleet, as well as all PCs within its reservation centers and corporate headquarters.

“The ON Technology solution enables us to create a robust and reliable management infrastructure for all our computing systems, whether they’re located in one of our reservation centers or in a ‘floating’ IT environment thousands of miles away on a cruise ship,” said Douglas Eney, Staff Vice President of Systems Support and Technology for Carnival Cruise Lines. “By automating our existing IT processes, the ON solution significantly reduces IT costs while simultaneously enhancing guest satisfaction by allowing us to continuously update and fix remote systems in real-time, without deploying IT personnel.”

The ON solution enables Carnival to lower IT costs by automating the provisioning and ongoing management of all devices such as Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals and PCs in its “24/7” reservation centers. At the same time, it maximizes guest satisfaction and ensures minimal downtime via real-time software and security updates as well as one-click disaster recovery for critical systems.

“We are pleased to welcome Carnival, one of the most recognizable names in travel, to the ON Technology family of enterprise customers,” said Robert L. Doretti, Chairman, President and CEO of ON Technology. “This implementation demonstrates once again that our solutions uniquely satisfy the demanding requirements of distributed enterprises which require management over a broad range of wired and wireless networks.”

Unlike traditional management solutions which can only be used to manage systems that are connected over high-speed LANs, ON’s innovative solution allows highly-distributed enterprises like Carnival to manage both LAN-connected systems and remote/mobile systems from a single integrated console – even over intermittent low-bandwidth connections such as wireless networks. ON’s solution is also unique in managing any function on any remote device, including operating system deployment and disaster recovery, which differs from conventional solutions which can only be used to deploy applications and updates. Carnival is also utilizing these advanced capabilities to perform an unattended, enterprise-wide deployment of Microsoft Windows 2000® for all its PCs and servers.

About Carnival

Carnival is the largest and most popular cruise line in the world with 19 “Fun Ships” operating voyages of three to 16 days in length to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, Hawaii, the Panama Canal, Canada, New England and Bermuda from homeports throughout North America. The line currently has three new ships with an estimated value of $1.3 billion scheduled for delivery between now and 2005.

About ON Technology Corporation

ON Technology empowers IT organizations and service providers to manage the full lifecycle of their computing systems over large-scale corporate networks.
