Asset Discovery and Inventory - Creates dynamic situational awareness about changing conditions in the infrastructure. The ability to run distributed scans on the entire network frequently delivers pervasive visibility and control to help ensure that organizations quickly identify all IP-addressable devices—including network devices and peripherals such as printers, scanners, routers and switches in addition to computer endpoints—with minimal network impact.
Software distribution - Provides policy-based installation, closed-loop verification and the ability to manage software distribution across Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac OS platforms from a single, unified point of control. The solution delivers high first-pass success rates with minimal impact on network performance.
Operating System deployment - Delivers centralized control and automation to simplify bare-metal deployment of Windows images to new workstations, laptops and servers throughout the network, as well as OS migration and refresh for existing endpoints. At the same time, it reduces management costs, minimizes impact on end users, ensures compliance with organizational OS standards and reduces risks associated with non-compliant or insecure configurations.
Patch Management - Patch management includes comprehensive capabilities for delivering patches for Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac OS and for third-party applications, including Adobe, Mozilla, Apple and Java, to distributed endpoints—regardless of their location, connection type or status. A single management server can support up to 250,000 endpoints, shortening patch times with no loss of endpoint functionality, even over low-bandwidth or globally distributed networks. Virtual patch management capabilities enable off line patching, making stale virtual machine images a thing of the past.
Remote desktop control - Provides support and control for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X desktops, laptops and servers throughout the distributed environment from a central location. The desktop control features enable management and troubleshooting of systems that can streamline IT functions and reduce the workload on an organization’s help desk, even across Internet-brokered connections.
Supported platforms for the agent
Evaluates tools that manage configurations and support system administration tasks for client devices. These tools automate system administration and support functions that would otherwise be done manually.
"We have made great strides over the last few years in moving from reacting to events to proactively staying ahead of the game. We couldn’t do this without this visibility" - —Ed Jones, Senior Information Planning Engineer, SunTrust Banks
