New Boundary Technologies Releases Prism Suite 8

Automated Configuration Management Suite Supports Windows Vista, Dramatically Improves Speed Of Software Deployment

MINNEAPOLIS - September 4, 2007 - New Boundary Technologies®, an award-winning provider of automated configuration and security management software solutions, today announced the release of Prism Suite™ 8, the newest version of its automated desktop and server configuration management solution. Prism Suite 8 includes new features and functionality improvements designed to make managing Windows Vista™ as easy as any previous version of the Windows operating system. And Prism Suite 8 combines the automated management functions administrators use most in an easy to learn, easy to use, and easy to implement modular solution.

Prism Suite 8 is designed to work effortlessly with Windows Vista and its new and enhanced features like special folders, fast user switching, and user account control to simplify Vista desktop configuration management. Prism Suite even helps organizations prepare for Vista migration by evaluating existing workstations for Vista hardware requirements and compatibility.

Prism Suite 8 creates software deployment packages that dramatically reduce deployment times to save time and resources. Testing by New Boundary Technologies shows that using Prism Suite and Prism deployment packages, administrators can install software like Microsoft Office 2007 up to five times faster than a native installation routine. And like previous versions, Prism Suite 8 is ideally suited to managing a mixed Windows IT environment.

“Windows Vista is the most complex and comprehensive desktop operating system Microsoft has ever developed, and it represents a new challenge to IT departments,” said Kim Pearson, president and chief executive officer of New Boundary Technologies. “In developing Prism Suite 8, we made sure that our customers would experience the same level of control, process automation, and ease of use in managing Windows Vista as they have with all of the previous versions of Windows. From scanning your environment for Vista-compatible systems to quickly and easily deploying software, installing patches, and managing IT assets, Prism Suite 8 sets a new standard for desktop configuration management solutions.”

Powered by scalable technologies that deliver core desktop management functionality, Prism Suite automates asset management, software packaging, deployment, and patching to drive new IT efficiencies. Prism Suite is an exceptionally easy-to-learn and easy-to-use solution that fits the budgetary limits of any size organization, and virtually eliminates the need for training and consulting. Prism Suite dramatically improves administrative control of the desktop by delivering real-time insight into the configuration states of computer systems on the network. And Prism Suite’s open architecture and modular design provides administrators with a high degree of flexibility to customize the solution to suit their needs and work processes.
