MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 20, 2004--New Boundary Technologies(TM), a leading provider of innovative remote automation software, today announced the general availability of Prism Deploy(R) and Prism Pack(TM) for OEM partners. Due to growing demand for the award-winning software distribution technology in Prism solutions, the company has separated Prism Deploy into two components for OEM

partners: the Prism Management Console and the Prism Packaging Engine.

Based on the recent release of Prism Deploy 6, the components offer OEM partners new and exclusive product options with features that improve desktop and server management and software deployment performance, enhance network security and administration, and improve Help Desk operations.

"Corporate users of Prism Deploy have been reaping the benefits of its robust deployment technology for many years now," said Kim Pearson, president and chief executive officer of New Boundary Technologies. "By delivering OEM versions of Prism Deploy components, we're enabling our business partners to offer the same level of deployment speed, reliability and ease of use to their customers."

Already rebranded for Help Desk and Mobile Automation partners, Prism Deploy has proven to be an extremely valuable add-on product offering for current partners and has significantly increased sales and revenue streams by allowing them to offer new and unique products to their existing customers. With the addition of a standalone Prism Management Console, software vendors can easily add the ability to deploy and install multiple desktop clients for their applications via a network. The Prism Management Console is ideally suited as a central management system for distribution of ISV's solution offerings.

Prism Deploy 6 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, Prism Deploy is now built on a SQL database for improved integration and scalability. In addition to its robust deployment functionality, Prism Deploy 6 includes features that make ongoing maintenance and management of software fast and easy, including automated software removal and repair.
