New Boundary Technologies Inc.s new Prism Patch Manager, based in part on technology from St. Bernard Software Inc.s UpdateExpert, is a good addition to any corporate IT managers arsenal of patch management tools.

The combination of New Boundarys Prism software deployment system and St. Bernards patch management system is part of a trend that IT managers will likely see repeated throughout next year.

Prism Patch Manager became available last month and costs $1,100 to manage 100 systems.
