MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – August 8, 2007 – KACE, the leading provider of systems management appliances, today announced new partnerships with ACA Pacific Technology, Foresight Technologies, and International Micro Village, dramatically increasing its global presence. ACA will offer the award-winning KBOX family of automated IT appliances in Singapore and Malaysia, Foresight Technologies in Asia, the Middle Eastern and African territories, and International Micro Village throughout the Philippines.


Through the new distribution partnership, KACE customers in these territories will now receive the convenience of immediate local support and pricing, as well as enjoy the power of the AppDeploy.com global community offered through AppDeploy Live, a new feature launched in June that is embedded within the KBOX Management Console, allowing KBOX users across the globe to share knowledge and communicate about common systems management tasks via a public forum.


“KACE is already seeing great traction in APAC and the Middle Eastern and African territories with a number of both large and medium-sized organizations that are looking for an affordable and easy-to-use automated IT solution to match their unique needs,” said Greg Lipper, KACE’s managing director for the Asia Pacific region. “Working with ACA Pacific Technology, Foresight Technology, and International Micro Village, all well known and very respected partners, represents a tremendous opportunity for us to further expand our world presence.”


KACE’s KBOX family of appliances saves its customers both time and money. Systems managers from large and mid-sized organizations are often forced to wear many hats throughout the day to work on a myriad of IT functions.

The KBOX 1000 Series Systems Management Appliances automate routine and complex IT maintenance tasks for end-point nodes on a network, while the KBOX 2000 Series Systems Deployment Appliances provide centralized provisioning and remote system recovery.
