Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 15, 2007
Pure Networks™, Inc., the home networking software pioneer and market leader, today announced a strategic reseller agreement with CA, Inc. (NYSE: CA), one of the world's largest information technology (IT) management software companies. Through the agreement, Pure Networks' flagship product Network Magic 4.1 is now available to PC service technicians enrolled in CA's OnSite PC Protection Program.
"Partnering with CA allows us to better serve in-home PC service technicians - an increasingly important distribution channel for us to distribute our Network Magic 4.1 consumer home networking software," said Pure Networks CEO Jeff Erwin.
PC service technicians can now easily access Network Magic 4.1 through CA's OnSite Web portal (http://ca.com/onsite), as well as CA's home and small businesses (SMB) security and utility software. Network Magic 4.1 allows technicians to easily and quickly set up networks and identify problems from the onset. With Network Magic's repair and troubleshooting capabilities, consumers are able to fix network problems on their own, even after the technician has left. Network Magic ultimately reduces the amount of time technicians spend by automating complex tasks across all the major operating systems.
Network Magic™ 4.1 is the only home networking software product that enables easy printer and file sharing across the Windows Vista™, XP, and Mac OS operating systems. New Network Magic 4.1 features include:
- Network Reports gives parents an easy way to monitor Internet use and know where their child goes online. When a user opts-in to this feature, they are sent a daily report showing hour-by-hour Internet and bandwidth use, as well as Web sites visited and any software applications used the previous day. This report is formatted and delivered in such a way that the average parent can understand what is happening and whether or not their family is at risk.
- Network Magic Advisor is an intuitive feature that guides the user through the complexity of managing a home network by making personalized recommendations on how to use their devices, find appropriate compatible devices, and gives advice on product upgrades.
