Specops Deploy 4.2 now offers:

  • Support for MDT 2010 Update 1

"With the latest enhancements, Specops Deploy greatly reduces the burden on IT departments by deploying software faster and simpler than ever before," said Thorbjorn Sjovold, chief technology officer at Specops Software. 

Specops Deploy uses existing infrastructure and requires no additional hardware investment. This gives Specops Deploy users the advantage of managing the efficient deployment of operating systems and applications in a stable, properly controlled environment.

Several customers including Saab, Volvo and Anderson School District 5 have chosen Specops Deploy for its high degree of automation, simple task management, rapid return on investment (ROI) and ease of integration with existing Microsoft platforms.

"The decision to go with Specops was certainly the right one for our school district," stated Ben Willis, senior network engineer, Anderson School District 5. "We are now able to easily update our network and deploy applications seamlessly to more than 15,000 users. This is exactly how software deployment should work."

As one of Sweden's leading municipalities, Täby Kommun utilizes Specops Deploy for distribution of operating systems and applications to more than 2500 users.

"We evaluated several solutions and chose Specops Deploy because the product is both efficient and easy to implement," said Jan Granvik, head of IT, Täby Kommun. "With the new Specops Deploy solution in place, we can re-install any computer in less than 30 minutes, either with our standard Windows XP platform or with our new Windows 7 platform. We are able to deploy all of our applications without the need to be physically on site. We couldn't be happier."
