Sterling Commerce Updates CONNECT:Remote

E-commerce and systems management firm Sterling Commerce Inc. released
CONNECT:Remote 3.3, the latest version of its remote systems management

The version provides a software solution for turning remote PCs into fully
managed clients. Systems administrators can now more effectively manage large
numbers of remote and mobile systems, resulting in a significant decrease
in support
costs and an increase in productivity, Sterling said.

Version 3.3 includes upgrades to each component module of CONNECT:Remote’s
Managed Client, client support for important versions of UNIX and IBM
operating systems and management console integration with Microsoft’s SMS and
Tivoli’s TME/10, two leading LAN-based systems management products.

“With the number of workers who are only intermittently connected to an
enterprise growing to around 50% of the workforce by the year 2000, system
administrators are scrambling to find ways to increase control of remote
systems,” said Corey Smith, president of Sterling
Commerce’s Managed Systems Division. “This newest version of CONNECT:Remote
gives an administrator all the tools to manage remote systems, always
keeping them in the optimal state for
maximum performance and productivity.”

CONNECT: Remote 3.3 runs in the Microsoft Windows environment and is available
for $375 per client. CONNECT: Remote Software Manager, Inventory Manager,
AntiVirus Manager and Backup Manager are also individually available, ranging
in price from $50 to $75 per client. For Remote customers, upgrades are $195
per client. CONNECT:Remote for Tivoli ranges in price from $2,750 to $30,000
depending on server capacity. Introductory pricing for CONNECT:Remote Manager
for Microsoft SMS is $1,500 per server.
