Bomgar 10.4 Supports Windows 7

RIDGELAND, Miss., Oct. 27, 2009 - Bomgar Corporation, a leading provider of appliance-based remote support software, announced the latest version of its product with expanded platform support and new productivity features.  Bomgar 10.4 supports Windows 7 and includes new management tools that allow technicians to handle the increased support workloads anticipated by the upgrade to Windows 7 over the next 18 months. Bomgar’s unified approach to remote support lets organizations manage support across distributed environments and a wide array of operating systems without compromising security.

“Support departments are entering a new phase marked by the introduction of Windows 7,” said Nathan McNeill, Bomgar’s vice president of product strategy.  “And with PC demand expected to reset in 2010, IT organizations are challenged to handle this inevitable hardware refresh as recent cutbacks have strained staff resources.  Bomgar provides an optimal solution for IT support to work virtually and overcome the obstacles of geography, diverse technology systems and access barriers.”
