FileWave Extends the Reach of Both Asset Trustee & FileWave

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12 // -- FileWave, the leading provider of installation and software management tools for Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server, adds new features for versions 3.0 of FileWave and 8.0 of Asset Trustee. The new features include Multiple Administrators, Administrator Concurrent Login, Hardware Discovery and First Time Deployment.

Nurdan Symanzick, Managing Director of FileWave said, "In keeping with our core values these product enhancements are intended to further meet the needs of our customers, and reinforce our market position. We are 'software solution pioneers' that listen to our customer's requirements with the goal of exceeding their expectations. In releasing version 3.0 we are helping our customers work more productively in an easier and more user friendly way."

"Mac OS X delivers system administrators incredible stability, security and ease of use right out of the box," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're thrilled that FileWave now offers all of its software management tools as Universal applications that take advantage of the power of Xserve and our Intel-based Macs."

Existing Mac OS X customers will benefit from new and enhanced features. These include a brand new FileWave Multi Admin feature that increases productivity by making it even easier to use across multiple locations and networks. Additionally, FileWave 3.0 has been re-engineered to automatically install any software or patch from Adobe CS2 to Windows Service Packs on 10 to 10,000 Macintosh, Windows and Linux based computers and servers delivering the first truly cross platform solution available for enterprises.

Customers using Asset Trustee, FileWave's solution for the collection and management of hardware and software assets across all networks, will also benefit from the availability of new functionality. Asset Trustee Discovery is a new feature developed to aid in the discovery of computers and network equipment. Discovery will automatically discover and report back all devices on an enterprise's entire network. The Asset Trustee Discovery feature is also integrated with FileWaveLet to aid in the deployment of the FileWave Client software to the discovered computers. Additionally, a feature reporting Network Cards is available to further extend Asset Trustee's functionality

Both FileWave and Asset Trustee are available as Universal applications for Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server, and are also available for Windows.
