Entrigue Becomes Citrix Technology Alliance Partner - Script Start provisions and manages user profile settings on Citrix and virtual desktops


Atlanta – January 17, 2008 – Entrigue Systems, a leader in managing, configuring, and provisioning user profile settings on Windows desktops, today announced it has joined the Citrix Global Alliance Partner Program as a Technology Partner. Entrigue representatives will also be available to discuss channel partnerships at Citrix Summit in Orlando, January 27-31.

Script Start enables administrators to manage, configure, and provision user settings on Windows desktops (including Citrix and virtual clients) connected to virtually any popular server OS. The solution enables administrators to effortlessly map drives, install printers, configure Outlook and MAPI profiles, modify environment variables, adjust Internet proxy settings, automatically customize clients, and more.

“Our partnership with Citrix is very logical,” said Jon McDonald, CEO of Entrigue Systems. “Citrix XenDesktop makes it easy for organizations to roll out thin Windows desktops and Script Start makes it just as easy to then provision user configuration settings and provide ongoing configuration management for these desktops.”

“Citrix has become synonymous for lowering TCO while providing a robust thin/virtual Windows desktop,” said Jason E. Smith, VP of Business Development for Entrigue Systems. Script Start adds value in the same manner by further lowering administration costs through automating Citrix desktop user settings management.”

Script Start is the only solution to support both Windows and Linux servers to manage Windows desktops via the powerful use of graphical logon scripting.

Script Start Open Source vs. Script Start Professional
Script Start Community 2.0 is available today for use at no charge under a GPLv3 license and can be downloaded at Entrigue plans to make Script Start Professional available within the next 30 days. Script Start Professional will include priority support, inventory reporting capabilities, one year of Software Assurance, upgrade assistance from previous versions of Script Start, priority product updates, and access to future additional features. Script Start Professional will be priced at $990 per domain controller with the ability to manage all connected Windows Desktops in the same domain.
