Automated PC Repair and High Speed Imaging Maintain IT Governance and Compliance, While Dramatically Reducing Maintenance & Support

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Persystent Technologies, a leading provider of automated PC repair and high-speed imaging, today announced that Vanderbilt University has joined the growing roster of educational institutions utilizing Persystent as a solution to manage and protect their computer assets. The university deployed Persystent to maintain PC configuration compliance and minimize the cost and complexity of IT maintenance and support.

"We found that Persystent will greatly improve our ability to manage our desktop computers," said F. Clark Williams, Jr., Director, Information Technology Support, Office of the Dean of Students, Vanderbilt University.

Persystent transforms today's computers from their current state of unpredictability and vulnerability to a consistent and dependable work-ready environment. Persystent's software automatically repairs and restores an infected or corrupted PC's operating system and software applications, on or off the network, while also enforcing configuration policies.

"Computer classrooms and labs are essential services for faculty and students, yet they pose special challenges for educational institutions. Aging, mis-matched PCs, restrictive permissions, irregular maintenance and slow imaging software add to these challenges," said Bob Whirley, COO, Persystent Technologies. "Our software all but eliminates these challenges by automating PC repair, automating configuration compliance and automating many management tasks, freeing up valuable IT resources."

The Office of the Dean of Students at Vanderbilt plans to implement Persystent this fall.
