(BW)(NEW-BOUNDARY) New Boundary Technologies Extends Prism Product Line with Prism Patch Manager; Delivers Comprehensive, Intelligent, Hands-Free Patch Management

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 12, 2003--New Boundary Technologies, Inc., maker of best-of-breed software solutions for the enterprise network and remote management markets, today launched Prism Patch Manager(TM) -- delivering centralized evaluation, deployment and updating of critical software patches for network administrators.

Prism Patch Manager is offered alongside New Boundary Technologies' Prism Deploy(R) and Prism Pack(TM) software. Powered by St. Bernard Software's established and highly rated UpdateEXPERT(R) technology, Prism Patch Manager solves system and application security problems by keeping software patch levels current.

"Security costs time and money. New software patches are released weekly or even daily. Downloading, testing, and deploying them is a full-time job," said Kim Pearson, president and CEO, New Boundary Technologies. "Prism Patch Manager is a world-class, proven solution that automates patch management and keeps networks secure while saving money."

Patch management is a critical component of an overall software deployment strategy to maintain corporate network security and integrity. IT departments are faced with the frequent release of new patches and potential threats to unpatched networks, yet most cannot effectively research, collect, and deploy all needed patches manually. Prism Patch Manager is designed to automate and centralize this process by evaluating and deploying missing and out-of-date hot fixes, service packs, and other patches for networked computers -- speeding the critical patch process and reducing demands on IT staff.

Features of Prism Patch Manager include:

-- Automatic system scanning to determine patch requirements

-- The world's most comprehensive patch database, with information about thousands of patches and how to deploy, validate, and install them

-- Evaluation of system interdependencies before patch deployment

-- Validation of patch installations systemwide

-- An optional client agent allowing management of any combination of networked machines
