ON Technology Gains Share in Law Office Market; Signs new Customers, Including Godwin Gruber

ON Technology Product Suite Ideally Suited for Small Firms’ IT Staffs to Manage Key Technology Initiatives

Waltham, Mass. (May 8, 2003) - ON Technology Corporation (Nasdaq:ONTC), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure management solutions, announced that it continues to be successful in gaining market share within the legal administration environment. Dallas-based Godwin Gruber is the latest law firm to select the ON Technology product suite which will be used to enhance the management and deployment of more than 40 off-the-shelf and custom applications used within the legal setting. The ON Technology solution provides law firm IT departments with the products and services law firms need to support their practices and growth in an effective and cost-efficient manner. Other top-rated firms that have turned to ON Technology include Winstead Sechrest & Minick, also of Dallas, New York City-based Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Vossius & Partner, based in Munich, Germany.

Godwin Gruber, a large firm representing Fortune 500 and middle market industry clients, selected the ON Command suite (including ON Command CCM®, ON Command Remote™ and ON Command Discovery™) to manage its network of 340 desktops and laptops. Godwin Gruber will also take advantage of the suite’s web-enabled self-service capability, which allows attorneys to install and configure approved software, such as Lexis-Nexis. ON Command Discovery will be used to locate and inventory hardware and software assets, track configurations, and automatically alert administrators whenever anything changes.

According to Robert L. Doretti, President, Chairman and CEO of ON Technology, one of the major deciding factors for Godwin Gruber was the product’s unique native installation technology. Conventional, workgroup-oriented cloning solutions, simply replicate identical static configurations to all users. The ON product’s native installation technology meets the needs of today’s heterogeneous enterprises, by working with distinct configurations for each user, machine, operating system, and/or network, thereby increasing the reliability of deployments significantly and further minimizing PC downtime.

“We understand that a major problem arises when attorneys’ PCs are down or they don’t have the latest software, because that immediately translates into lost revenue,” stated Doretti. “By automating the deployment of security patches and other critical software updates, as well as providing rapid disaster recovery, our robust solution increases the reliability of any infrastructure while dramatically improving everyone’s productivity – including IT.”

“ON Technology has proven itself to be a committed IT partner to the legal market by providing a comprehensive IT management solution that enables law firms to concentrate their resources and efforts on their core business, not the support of that business,” added Doretti. “We are very happy to work with Godwin Gruber and look forward to providing them with high-quality products and services that deliver the industry’s best ROI while providing tactical and strategic value in support of their business objectives.”
