New iPhone App Enables IT Staff to Manage Their Enterprise Remotely

PETERBOROUGH, England, May 10, 2011 - Halcyon Software (halcyonsoftware.com/), a world leading provider
of systems management solutions, has announced the latest release of its
popular graphical user interface (GUI) tool, Enterprise Console v8.7
(www.halcyonsoftware.com/products/enterpriseconsole/), which allows
centralized management for all systems alerts from multiple platforms

IBM i, AIX, Windows and Linux.

Enterprise Console v8.7 (
www.halcyonsoftware.com/products/enterpriseconsole/) enables IT
managers and network administrators to manage large numbers of servers - no
matter how remote -across different sites or countries from a single
location. Alerts generated from servers, applications and SNMP devices,
including hubs, routers and switches, can be viewed and managed on a single
PC screen.

Through the use of this GUI, all systems and alerts can be color-coded to
aid identification on screen - to enable the operator to take appropriate
remedial action quickly and according to alert priority.

The Enterprise Console interfaces with all of Halcyon's monitoring suites
for IBM i, AIX, Windows and Linux.

New iPhone App

In addition, Halcyon's Enterprise Console can now provide users with a
portable view of their whole environment across all platforms. By downloading
Halcyon's free application from the Apple App Store, all system alerts, SNMP
traps, devices and system statuses can be displayed in real-time on the
iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (

Users can view the mobile version of the Enterprise Console through the
Apple devices and have exactly the same functionality as the full version of
the software. The key benefit is that IT administrators or operational staff
"on the move" now have access to their enterprise and can quickly manage
issues or problems remotely.

Other new features include the ability to interface with recognized Open
Source systems such as Security Information Event Manager (SIEM), Log
Amalgamators, IBM Tivoli , HP OpenView, CA Unicenter, BMC Patrol and any
Syslog or SNMP compliant system.

In addition, Enterprise Console v8.7 will now support Netport and
enhanced SNMP enabling alert notification to a cell phone for all systems and
SNMP compliant network devices.

Donnie MacColl, Technical Services Director of Halcyon Software said,
"The new enhancements in Enterprise Console v8.7 have been developed as a
response to customer requests. We have seen an increasing trend for more
solutions to be readily accessible from mobile devices and cell phones,
especially from IT support staff who often work remotely and need to
constantly improve productivity and efficiency."

MacColl added, "We are committed to supporting other mobile platforms in
the future like Android. This new release confirms Halcyon's commitment to
providing functionality that really contributes to the way companies wish to
run their operations."
