New Boundary Technologies Selects InstallShield to Enhance MSI Flexibility in its Software Packaging and Deployment


MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 11, 2003--New Boundary Technologies, Inc. (formerly Lanovation), maker of best-of-breed software solutions for the enterprise network and remote management markets, today announced the selection of InstallShield® Software Corporation’s Tuner™ and Developer™ solutions for inclusion with its Prism Pack™ and Prism Deploy® software packaging and deployment products. The Prism product line now provides system administrators the most robust, comprehensive and flexible products on the market for all software packaging and deployment tasks.

New Boundary TechnologiesÂ’ Prism products help system administrators keep their computers and servers up-to-date with the latest software and patches. Including InstallShield Developer and Tuner extends the benefits of Prism by giving corporate IT departments additional flexibility to configure native Windows Installer (MSI) files prior to deployment. Windows Installer files created by Prism Pack and Prism Deploy can now be customized for deployment in a mixed Windows network environment.

“New Boundary Technologies is dedicated to addressing the needs of our customers by providing technology that is specifically designed to solve the most complex and costly task in a distributed network: the rapid and reliable packaging, deployment and installation of desktop applications,” said Kim Pearson, New Boundary President and CEO. “Corporate IT departments who use the Windows Installer format often customize those packages to meet their infrastructure requirements. We determined that InstallShield, through Tuner and Developer, provides the superior technology for this requirement,” he said.

“New Boundary Technologies continues to incorporate leading-edge technologies in the Prism products to save customers time and money,” said Viresh Bhatia, CEO of InstallShield. “Incorporating proven InstallShield Developer and Tuner OEM gives New Boundary Technologies’ customers the flexibility to quickly and reliably customize applications to suit their specific needs,” he said.
