Diagnostics Leader Also Begins to Explore Opportunities to Drive Additional Advantages in Enterprise IT Organizations over Intel AMT

PC-Doctor Inc. (http://www.pc-doctor.com), the leading global developer of hardware diagnostic and system information tools, today announced plans to support Intel® Advanced Management Technology (AMT) through diagnostic tests that verify the operation of the new technical capability. The company also said it has begun to explore how PC-Doctor® diagnostics can be further deployed to deliver an advantage to enterprise organizations responsible for support of managed personal computers.

PC-Doctor’s announcement coincides with the rollout of a new Intel Professional Platform, which received public support from leading PC manufacturers in the United States and Asia. PC-Doctor diagnostics are used by major PC manufacturers to reduce costs, improve productivity and enhance quality.

Intel AMT gives IT support organizations unprecedented remote access to discover, heal and protect networked PC assets, regardless of the state of the operating system or platform power. The results are more efficient management of networked PCs and significantly reduced IT operating costs, according to Intel.

“Our customers are very interested in AMT’s advantages and have asked that we include verification support for the new Intel technology in our diagnostic products,” said Aki Korhonen, president and chief technology officer of PC-Doctor. “Additionally, we believe there may well be new ways in which we can deliver other advantages to PC manufacturers, network management software providers, and enterprise IT organizations by a marriage of our diagnostics with other products.”

Intel AMT helps solve a long-standing challenge for IT organizations: When network PCs misbehave, repairs often require multiple desk-side trips. A combination of the AMT technology and networked diagnostics such as those integrated into the recently introduced PC-Doctor 5 architecture would let IT support perform hardware troubleshooting over the network – even if the target PC’s main power was off or the operating system was malfunctioning.
