Original Press Release:
FileWave Releases Version 3.6 of Its Software Management Suite, FileWave(TM)
Managing multi-user workstations is now easier than ever with FileWave(TM) 3.6
WIL, Switzerland, Oct. 9 - FileWave, a technology leader for software management on the Mac OS X, Windows and Linux systems, announces the release of FileWave 3.6 for Mac OS, Windows and Linux. In addition to distributing, installing and configuring operating system upgrades, FileWave permits users to efficiently mass deploy and manage all other types of software, from large ready-to-use applications such as Adobe Creative Suite 3 and Microsoft Office to vital security patches, both in a single- and a multi-platform environment.
FileWave(TM) 3.6, with its own significant performance enhancements and greater administrative flexibility, transforms the process of installing a complicated and time-consuming upgrade into a straightforward and hassle-free affair. FileWave(TM) 3.6 includes such new features as an "All Users" folder that enables a system administrator to deliver files to every user account on each computer. This functionality has been missing from the Mac OS, which FileWave 3.6 improves by adding the necessary help. Additionally, system administrators can chose to re-install Filesets, Patch Installers or Executables with the new Reactivate Filesets feature. While FileWave makes sure that installers and Filesets are run, some administrators need the seamless ability to force a re-installation: FileWave 3.6 gives administrators that power over their Mac OS and Windows clients.
"We are pleased to have a FileWave 3.6 shipping with these and many other enhancements," says Ben Forsyth, Director of Software Development at FileWave (USA), Inc. "We used this release as an opportunity to add several minor fixes and a few major features that our end user community has been looking for."
FileWave develops, markets and integrates the software management tools FileWave(TM) and Asset Trustee(TM). These products deploy, monitor, and manage applications in enterprise network environments based on Microsoft Windows, Linux and Apple Macintosh systems. Customers of FileWave include Nike, BBC Worldwide, Gruner + Jahr, LEGO, Publicis and Viacom.
