ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 6, 2005--New Boundary Technologies(R), a provider of automated IT management and security solutions, today announced the upcoming release of Prism Suite(TM), an integrated desktop and server configuration management solution designed to meet the specific needs of small and mid-size organizations. Prism Suite delivers the business-critical desktop and server management functionality required by IT administrators - asset management, software deployment, and patch management. Prism Suite is offered as an integrated solution for customers wanting the full benefits of the suite, or as individual modules for customers seeking specific point solution functionality. New Boundary Technologies made the announcement at the TechEd 2005 conference in Orlando, Florida.
New to Prism Suite is the addition of Prism Asset Manager(TM), which reduces operational costs and organizational risk by maximizing IT asset utilization and empowering regulatory and software license compliance. Prism Asset Manager delivers a detailed, up-to-date knowledge base of an organization's IT assets that accurately identifies what software is on any computer and how it is configured.
The asset management module helps organizations better plan and budget for their software and hardware procurement and migration. Prism Asset Manager also improves helpdesk efficiency by providing detailed system configuration information in real-time, which can cut helpdesk call times by up to 50 percent.
"Two years of consolidation in the desktop management market left a definite gap between point solution and suite providers that New Boundary Technologies aims to fill with its Prism Suite," said Richard L. Ptak, co-founder and partner of Ptak, Noel & Associates. "By integrating all the essential desktop management functions with an open administrative console that accepts point solution snap-ins, Prism Suite delivers a powerful, highly customizable solution targeted to the SMB market."
Prism Suite features an integrated administrative console that provides a central location for managing Prism Deploy(R), Prism Patch Manager(TM), and the new Prism Asset Manager(TM) module. Prism Suite's open architecture and modular design allows administrators to add their favorite third-party management tools to the console to extend the solution's functionality and value. Unlike most management suites, Prism Suite has no hidden costs. It is easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to implement, virtually eliminating the need for training and consulting.
"Research shows that small and mid-size organizations want the benefits of an integrated management suite, but they don't want to pay for features they never use," said Kim Pearson, president and chief executive officer of New Boundary Technologies. "They also have real concerns about complexity and unexpected expenses that come with lengthy implementation projects and extensive training requirements.
With Prism Suite, we eliminate those issues and deliver a management suite that lets them customize the solution to work the way they work, instead of having to reengineer their processes to fit the solution."
Prism Suite dramatically improves administrative control by delivering real-time insight into the configuration states of computer systems on the network. Scheduled for release in July 2005, Prism Suite is currently undergoing beta testing. Organizations interested in participating in beta testing may contact New Boundary Technologies.
