ALISO VIEJO, CALIF. – June 20, 2018 – Quest Software, a global systems management and security software provider, today announced several enhancements to its KACE product line. The updates enable and empower organizations as they move to a unified endpoint management (UEM) environment by simplifying their endpoint infrastructure to create a more secure computing environment. The enhancements to KACE Cloud Mobile Device Management (MDM) and the release of KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (SDA) v6.0 introduce new functionality for easy-to-use, comprehensive, multi-platform endpoint and asset management.
The latest update to KACE MDM allows businesses to easily manage and secure Android and Apple iOS devices, whether they are corporate owned and deployed, or employee-owned devices under a “bring your own device” program. With KACE SDA v6.0, organizations save time and reduce the complexity of OS image deployments with simple, automated provisioning and administration of system images.
Every IT organization faces a dual-challenge of technological growth: first, the proliferation of endpoints, and second, the proliferation of security threats to those endpoints. What’s more, manual, ad-hoc management of these growing endpoints is time consuming and reactive, putting organizations at risk of updating and patching after threats are identified. This can lead to unchecked vulnerabilities, system downtime, and, at worst, network breaches. KACE solutions enable organizations to address these challenges by proactively provisioning, managing, securing and servicing their growing endpoint environments.
“The Quest KACE solutions are designed to make it easy for organizations to address their toughest endpoint management challenges,” said Ken Galvin, Senior Product Manager, Quest KACE. “The newest updates to the KACE solutions portfolio reinforce our commitment to innovation, bringing solutions to market fast, and our commitment to helping organizations find new opportunities as endpoint system management evolves into unified endpoint management.”
The new product releases follow a sold-out KACE user event, KACE UserKon 2018, which attracted more than 250 IT organizations to New Orleans in May. Attendees participated in lively discussions on best practices related to a wide variety of vital IT functions supported by Quest KACE solutions, including accommodating the mobile workforce, driving digital transformations, and instilling discipline regarding patch management. Those that missed attending in person can participate in a webinar recap scheduled for today from 10-11 a.m. Pacific time.
“What I love about UserKon is that you don’t know what you don’t know until you get there and interact with subject matter experts and peers,” said Brandy Norris, Computer Support Technician at Loop LLC. “I now feel that I can use KACE to its full potential.”
“KACE gives us a single management point for multiple devices on our network,” added Norris. “KACE saves us a lot of time as we can accomplish several tasks with one solution. For example, I can deploy images with the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance (SDA) and push software and patch updates with the KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA).”
The new versions of the KACE solutions appeal to a wide variety of IT professionals managing enterprise environments across industries. Included are features that allow users to take a more proactive stance with unified endpoint management, using automation, SaaS-based applications, and comprehensive, multi-platform management to ensure they are ahead of the curve.
