Automating Systems Management — Work Smarter, Not Harder

Work smarter, not harder — it’s is a great idea, but how can we accomplish it? The answer for IT administrators like us, of course, is automation. But we’re already stretched thin, so how can we find time to automate our daily tasks? Creating and managing boatloads of scripts is no solution at all, and there’s no way we have the time to deploy, configure and manage a complex management tool.

Automation is simple with the KACE Systems Management Appliance. KACE automates the endpoint systems lifecycle by managing, securing, servicing and provisioning your devices — all through a single pane of glass. And with the KACE Cloud Mobile Device Manager, you can manage all of your users’ Android and iOS devices from one convenient interface. Even better, both solutions require only minimal standup time.

Here are just a few ways automating with these KACE endpoint management and mobile device management (MDM) solutions can free up time in your day:

  • Find and provision devices on your network automatically with automated inventory discovery, and you no longer have worry about what devices and software are running on your network.
  • Provision your endpoints with software as needed with no intervention on your part using automated software distribution, and never again have end users calling you to install a needed application five minutes before your shift is over.
  • Automatically apply and manage patches for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems and perform OVAL vulnerability scanning with automated patch management and patch security.
  • Stay informed automatically with over 200 built in reports that can be scheduled to run when needed.
  • Easily be proactive about endpoint management by getting alerts for urgent issues, such a machine running low on disk space.
  • Manage systems on the run with the free KACE Go Mobile App — you can scan a bar code, view inventory, push an applications, reply to a service desk ticket and more. Mobile access allows you to work when and where you want.

Whether you’re managing Linux, Windows, Macintosh, Chromebook, Android or iOS devices, KACE can help. By automating management with KACE, you’ll get time back in your day. Who knows, you may even be able to knock out that project your manager has been asking you to get done.
