As new devices continue to proliferate company networks, the complexity to manage and secure multiplatform environments and endpoint device management increases. The newest release of KACE SMA further supports IT teams’ ability to manage their business instead of managing multiple disparate management systems. Updates include new Chromebook management enhancements and new built-in Windows 10 feature additions for easy device upgrades to the latest semi-annual releases, which are detected and deployed in a manner like patching. Also, end users can increase productivity by allowing parent tickets to pass information to child tickets in a process workflow and empower users to easily “snooze” patching directly from the KACE system tray utility.
“IT teams are facing mounting pressure as businesses work to unify their approach to endpoint management to ensure a strong security footprint across the organization,” said Ken Galvin, Senior Product Manager, Quest KACE. “To protect against today’s emerging threat vectors, businesses need an all-encompassing solution to manage, secure, and service all connected network devices, and one that automates and streamlines the IT asset management process for IT administrators. The newest capabilities available in the KACE SMA, KACE Cloud MDM, and KACE SDA offerings reinforce our commitment to providing end-to-end software solutions that give IT teams complete visibility into the endpoints to ensure security and compliance requirements are met.”
“The KACE solution is really like a multi-toolkit in that instead of pliers and screwdrivers, I have robust IT management and scripting capabilities,” said Sam Chevalier, Systems Analyst, Yale University. “With KACE, I can track down how many of my devices are running a particular software. One of the features I think is really cool is having the ability to see a catalog of all the devices. This capability saves me a lot of time in tracking devices across the network.”
