NEW BOUNDARY TECHNOLOGIES DRIVES COST SAVINGS, ENERGY CONSERVATION WITH GREEN IT SOLUTION

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Company Releases Automated Solution to Enable Proactive, Enterprise-Wide Enforcement of PC Power ManagementMINNEAPOLIS, November 11, 2008 – www.newboundary.com – New Boundary Technologies®, the IT automation innovator, today announced the release of its new Green IT Solution. Powered by Policy Commander® and the company’s unique PwrSmart™ technology, the Green IT Solution automates the enforcement of computer power management to dramatically reduce PC and computer monitor power consumption, energy costs, and environmental impact. The New Boundary Technologies Green IT Solution delivers centralized control of PC power management to IT departments enabling enterprise-wide energy efficiency and cost savings.Research indicates that more than 100 million workers in the U.S. regularly use PCs on the job, and the majority of them never or only occasionally turn off those computers at the end of the workday. According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates, the average PC left on all the time uses more than 700 kilowatts-hours of electricity, more than an average refrigerator, and wastes approximately 400 kilowatt-hours by running at full power when not in use. Each year, U.S. companies waste an estimated $4-billion powering computers that are not being used. Proactively managing PC power consumption can cut PC energy costs by 60 percent or more, or up to $350,000 annually for an organization with 5000 PCs. In fact, the potential for energy cost savings by implementing proactive PC power management is one reason Gartner named Green IT as its top strategic technology of 2008.The Green IT Solution from New Boundary Technologies delivers significant cost savings by automating the implementation and enforcement of power management on Windows® desktops, laptops, and servers. Powered by the company’s Policy Commander® automated policy management product and its innovative PwrSmart™ technology, the solution deploys intelligent power management policies to every computer that administrators choose to manage. It then monitors managed systems and automatically enforces the selected power management profiles and settings, even if end users try to disable or change approved power management settings.According to the U.S. Department of Energy, only 36 percent of workforce PCs are turned off at the end of the workday. Other research indicates that when PC-based power management functions are enabled, the majority of users will disable them within a few months. To overcome these issues, organizations need a solution that implements PC power management at the network level, and utilizes automation technologies to continuously enforce and maintain power management functions.“Organizations around the world are realizing that green initiatives not only help the environment by reducing energy waste and emissions, but they help the bottom line by immediately cutting energy costs,” said Tom Diamond, President of New Boundary Technologies. “By automatically enforcing PC power management, our Green IT Solution creates self-monitoring and self-maintaining computing environments that maximize savings with minimal impact on the IT staff. New Boundary Technologies is a leader in reducing total cost of PC ownership, and our Green IT Solution reinforces that leadership position.”About New Boundary TechnologiesNew Boundary Technologies develops innovative software solutions for IT management and remote equipment monitoring and control.

New Boundary Technologies'Policy Commander 2.0

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

MINNEAPOLIS, January 24, 2008 – www.newboundary.com – New Boundary Technologies®, the automated IT management innovator, today announced the release of Policy Commander 2.0, which easily makes Windows desktop, laptop and server systems exponentially safer and more compliant.Available immediately, Policy Commander 2.0 leverages innovative security policy management technologies that automate Windows security configuration enforcement to create sustainable compliance environments.“Testing and implementing security policies without an automated solution can put a severe drain on IT resources,” said Kim Pearson, president and chief executive officer of New Boundary Technologies. “Policy Commander lets IT put the focus of security on the computer, where confidential data actually resides, where the risk is greatest, and where they can get a fast, robust return on their security compliance investments.”Recent research by The Ponemon Institute, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, and the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) shows that the majority of threats to a company’s IT infrastructure and confidential information originate from inside the organization, rather than external sources like hackers. Organizations are much more likely to experience security breaches initiated by employees, either through malicious activity or simple user errors. And the risk of data breaches from external sources increase significantly for off-network equipment like laptops because they lose the protection of network perimeter defenses.“Policy Commander 2.0 is impressive as a competitive compliance solution for the mid-market,” said Richard Ptak, managing partner and co-founder of Ptak, Noel & Associates LLC. “Businesses looking for security from both internal and external threats should definitely consider Policy Commander.”The longstanding focus on directing IT resources to perimeter defenses ahead of system-level security configuration leaves organizations more vulnerable to internal threats. The proliferation of off-network systems such as laptops likewise leaves organizations more vulnerable to external security threats. Meanwhile, IT security compliance pressures are intensified by regulatory and industry mandates like HIPAA, GLBA, and PCI.Manually creating secure configurations for systems that hold or access confidential information, or that are used outside the network, can involve hundreds of individual Windows settings. With Policy Commander 2.0, IT professionals can automate the process of locking down Windows systems, vastly improving security with minimal impact on IT resources.The core automation technologies in Policy Commander 2.0 enable IT departments to lock down Windows systems, and keep them locked down, automatically and continuously. Policy Commander 2.0 integrates New Boundary Technologies configuration management innovations like Smart Update™, Configuration Groups, and the Dynamic Security Policy format. This gives Policy Commander, and the IT professionals who use it, the power to streamline security policy deployment and create self-correcting security configurations for every Windows system in the organization. Policy Commander 2.0 features include:• Configuration Groups that automate administration of computers and computer groups based on any configuration trait.• Offline Enforcement of policies to protect Windows systems from security threats when they leave the protection of network defenses.• Reporting and monitoring via the administrative console and the Web to maintain audit trails, deliver real-time compliance insight, and document security compliance to management and auditors.• Easy policy management with an intuitive user interface, a comprehensive security policy knowledge base, drag-and-drop policy assignment, and an integrated policy editor.• Security roles that allow for delegation of administrative authority at different permission levels.About New Boundary TechnologiesNew Boundary Technologies develops innovative software solutions for IT management and remote equipment monitoring and control.
