New Boundary Technologies Releases Prism Deploy 6.0; Award-Winning Solution Improves Deployment Performance and Security

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 14, 2004--New Boundary

Technologies(TM) today announced general availability of Prism

Deploy(R) 6.0, the company's award-winning software distribution and management solution. Prism Deploy 6.0 includes new and exclusive features that improve deployment performance, enhance network security and administration, and increase IT department efficiency.

Prism Deploy 6.0 includes new features that enhance network and workstation security, including security roles, digital certificate support and permissions deployment. New features such as wake on LAN, checkpoint restart, quick start templates and improvements to the management console significantly increase deployment performance and efficiency. With the release of version 6.0, Prism Deploy is now built on a SQL database for improved integration and scalability.

"As network environments become more and more complex, many IT professionals feel challenged to keep pace with the increased resource demands of software deployment and management," said Kim Pearson, president and chief executive officer of New Boundary Technologies.

"Software deployment shouldn't be a full-time job for IT departments, but it all too often is when they rely on manual scripting tools or bloated management suites. Prism Deploy 6.0 automates and streamlines processes so deployments can be completed in hours instead of days or weeks, delivering a full return on investment with just one or two rollouts. Prism Deploy gives you complete control over your networked systems to ensure configuration compliance, improve network security and enhance IT efficiency."

Prism Deploy 6.0 performs complete conflict checking and asset profiling before deployment to make software rollouts absolutely reliable. The solution's Smart Update(TM) technology greatly improves deployment efficiency by automatically targeting computers and deploying software updates based on configuration traits - without the need for repeated inventory scans.

"We've been using Prism Deploy for four years to install and maintain software on over 2,500 PCs," said Chip Eckardt, manager of desktop computing at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. "We've always been impressed by the high quality of New Boundary Technologies' solutions, their high quality people, and their outstanding technical support. New Boundary really understands the software distribution needs of IT departments, and delivers the features and functionality we need to keep our networked systems secure, stable and up-to-date. What is equally important is every employee I have met really cares about the customer."

In addition to its robust deployment functionality, Prism Deploy 6.0 includes features that make ongoing maintenance and management of software fast and easy, including removal and repair of software and configuration data. This adds significant value to the solution, empowering network administrators with much greater control over network system compliance and improving overall network security and integrity.
