Major upgrade to IT Lifecycle Management Suite includes Web 2.0 management console and mobile device software provisioning.

Our focus is on enabling administrators to work more efficiently and productively instead of increasing man hours.

matrix42, a leading developer of system management software, announced today Empirum Pro 2008, the forthcoming release of its IT Lifecycle Management Suite for enterprise networked devices. Empirum Pro 2008 delivers a range of new features designed to enhance performance and usability. These include a Web 2.0 management console for true "anytime, anywhere" administration. IT staff can also share hyperlinks to reports and information via the console. Among the other key new features:

  • Mobile device provisioning - deploys software and content to Windows mobile devices via air transmission or cradle sync-up. Empirum Pro 2008 seamlessly integrates mobile device management with management of connected devices.
  • Expanded device discovery - now extends beyond software, servers and PCs to routers, switches, IP phones, printers and any manageable IP device on the network. Empirum Pro 2008 provides detailed information on devices for complete asset management.
  • Automated OS provisioning - detects new PXE enabled computers on the network and installs OS and applications automatically. This time-saving "ship to desk" capability lets PCs be sent directly to users' desks, instead of going first to a setup area.
  • Empirum Easy Recovery - available standalone or as a fully integrated option to Empirum Pro 2008, the solution supports disaster recovery following a virus infection, hardware failure or fatal system error. It regularly backs up all data, including operating systems, applications, and system and user settings to ensure business continuity.

Empirum Pro continues to offer the industry's most complete IT Lifecycle Management solution. It automates and simplifies daily operational IT tasks, enabling enterprises to reduce costs by as much as 80 percent. It is also the only solution of its kind to provide automatic hardware recognition for dynamic OS installation, eliminating time-consuming hard disk imaging of PCs.

"Empirum Pro 2008 provides important new tools for helping administrators keep pace with the increasing complexity of today's enterprise IT environments," said Chris Tamblyn, CEO of

matrix42 USA. "Our focus is on enabling administrators to work more efficiently and productively instead of increasing man hours."

Empirum Pro continues to provide support for both Windows and Linux within one management system and one console. The upcoming new release will offer even broader Linux support, including for both 32- and 64-bit versions.

Empirum Pro 2008 will be available in Q4 2007. For licensing information, please contact:
