London – 23 April 2002 – 1E today announced the release of SMSNomad for Microsoft® Systems Management Server ® (SMS).

1E SMSNomad integrates with Microsoft SMS to provide intelligent software deployment to mobile and remote users. Responding to the rapidly growing demand for mobile support in SMS today, 1E has developed SMSNomad as a cost effective and easy to deploy solution.

SMSNomad ensures software is delivered to the system even if the dial-up or network link is slow or prone to failure. Using SMSNomad system administrators can deploy critical software updates such as anti-virus and security patches to mobile users who may have been previously unmanageable. Large software packages can be deployed over several sessions, making this the ideal solution for the growing number of users who generally dial-in or connect using VPNs.

SMSNomad is a lightweight client side tool. It requires no additional server infrastructure as it utilises the Microsoft SMS software distribution services in their entirety. This also ensures that SMS security and package integrity rules are preserved.

Rod Trent of said: " Â… By incorporating seamlessly with SMS's own package and advertisement process, it (SMSNomad) gives companies what they've always wanted -- the ability to manage remote computers. Not only does SMSNomad give SMS 2.0 environments checkpoint recovery, bandwidth throttling, configurable package size thresholds, and an additional level of disk space verification, it adds an extra level of package status reporting. SMSNomad gives companies Topaz functionality today."

1E will be previewing the software at the upcoming Microsoft Management Summit, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 30 - May 3, 2002.
