N-able Technologies(R) and Intel Extend Integration Efforts to Support New Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 with vPro(TM) Technology for Mobile Computing

    Industry leader announces support for Intel Centrino 2 with vPro
    technology; completes N-central software integration with Intel vPro
    technology for desktops

    OTTAWA, July 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Strengthening its technology collaboration
with Intel Corporation, N-able Technologies(R), the preferred supplier of
remote monitoring and management software and specialized business support
services for managed service providers (MSPs), today announced the immediate
interoperability and future integration of its award-winning N-central(R)
managed services software with the new Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 with vPro(TM)
technology. In addition, N-able and Intel are pleased to announce more
comprehensive integration of N-central and Intel vPro technology for desktops.
    According to Gavin Garbutt, president & CEO of N-able Technologies, the
ongoing collaboration between the two companies combined with Intel's recent
introduction of Centrino 2 with vPro technology signals the longstanding
impact managed services and mobility are having on the IT industry as a whole.
    "Mobile computing is the future of IT, and Intel's vPro technology embeds
remote management at the core of the IT industry," says Garbutt. "When Intel
vPro technology is combined with N-central, service providers gain the ability
to remotely monitor and manage desktops and notebooks regardless of location,
power state or how they are connected to the network. It's this type of
innovation and value proposition that MSPs and service providers will use to
differentiate themselves and extend their services capabilities beyond the
    Joe Ambrosole, owner of VISN, a successful MSP located in Staten Island,
New York, agrees. He says "the efficiencies and value gained by using
N-central and vPro together have really proved invaluable to us. Prior to
working with N-able and Intel, if we encountered a situation where a computer
was turned off or was inoperable for any reason, we couldn't work on it
remotely and would have to send out a technician. Now, we can manage our
clients' notebooks and desktops remotely, regardless of their power state -
which not only saves us time and money, but it increases our customer service
levels dramatically."
    "Intel's Centrino 2 with vPro technology is setting a new standard of
excellence for mobile computing by offering service providers with the next
level of mobile security and manageability," says Erik Reid, director of
mobile platforms marketing at Intel. "The interoperability and integration
between N-central and Intel's Centrino 2 with vPro technology brings forward
significant advancements in remote monitoring and management, and
collaboratively make it easier and more cost-effective for our customers to
service end users remotely."
    A new version of N-central that is integrated with Intel Centrino 2 with
vPro technology will be released in early Q4 2008. The two products are
interoperable today and may be purchased separately.
