Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Selects Novadigm's Radia to Manage Productivity and Security Applications on 20,000 Devices

World-Renowned Research Facility Conducted Rigorous Field Trial to Prove Rapid

Return on Investment in Radia Automated Software Management

    EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Novadigm(R), Inc.
 (Nasdaq:   NVDM), a leading provider of automated software and content
 management solutions for enterprise and Internet computing environments, today
 announced that the NNSA's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has licensed
 Novadigm's Radia(R) for 20,000 computing devices at the high-security energy
 and weapons research facility east of San Francisco.
     Lawrence Livermore is one of the world's premier scientific laboratories,
 using its knowledge of nuclear science, engineering, modeling and simulation
 to break new ground in magnetic and laser fusion energy, non-nuclear energy,
 biomedicine, and environmental science. The Laboratory selected Radia for
 software management inside the mile-square laboratory campus after a rigorous
 field trial to determine that the Novadigm solution clearly met Lawrence
 Livermore's exacting standards for software availability. Novadigm's Radia
 will be implemented throughout the laboratory's heterogeneous information
 infrastructure, which includes desktop devices and servers running Sun
 Solaris, Red Hat Linux, SGI Irix, Apple Macintosh OS, and Microsoft Windows
 98, NT and 2000. Lawrence Livermore will use Radia to manage its full
 deployment of packaged software applications.
     Until now, Lawrence Livermore scientific and administrative staff have
 been responsible for installing, updating, patching, and replacing their
 desktop software, with assistance from local system administrators. The
 resulting software deployments were expensive and often inconsistently
 applied.
     Lawrence Livermore is the second world-renowned U.S. government research
 establishment to rely on Novadigm automated software management. In
 November, the energy department's Brookhaven National Laboratory on
 Long Island, New York, began implementing Radia to ensure maximum software
 availability and consistency for 5,000 scientists and administrators.
     "Novadigm is succeeding with national research facilities such as
 Lawrence Livermore and Brookhaven because Radia's precise control and robust
 reliability match the needs of large-scale, high-security environments," said
 George Kellar, vice president of marketing for Novadigm. "Using Radia, the
 IS team at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory will reduce costs, while at
 the same time ensuring software service levels for the scientists and managers
 allowing them to focus on research of critical national importance."
     Radia is powered by Novadigm's e-wrap(TM) technology with desired state
 management, which automatically monitors applications performance, and
 patented fractional differencing, which conserves network bandwidth by
 transferring only the minimum bytes needed to install, update or repair
 software.
