Dell KACE Appliance Deployment Solution Enhanced with Audit Trial Capabilities

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor


Dell KACE (News - Alert) is a family of appliance deployment-based solutions that helps organizations improve endpoint security and achieve regulatory compliance thanks to its expanded visibility and audit trail capabilities.

Recently, the company unveiled the latest Dell (News - Alert) KACE K1000 Management Appliance and revealed that it now offers support for operating systems such as Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, SUSE Linux Enterprise and Ubuntu (News - Alert) Linux and Mac OS X Mountain Lion, in addition to existing and legacy Windows and Mac OS X versions, as well as SUSE Linux Enterprises and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

With new machine inventory API, IT teams gains the ability to view, track, report on and manage all IT assets from a single Web-based console. The automated one-click agent updates enable IT teams to streamline downloads and push out agent updates to endpoints in a reliable and scalable way.

Another new feature of the appliance-based solution is the on-demand patch optimization that gives users the ability to selectively download patches on an as-needed basis, allowing IT teams to support complex and diverse environments with multiple languages/OS versions without being limited by storage bottlenecks. The multi-object reporting offers more powerful insights into the state of IT infrastructure.

“Today’s organizations face a wide range of IT challenges including endpoint security, regulatory compliance, server management and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), which can make it difficult for resource-strapped IT teams to provide the services and responsiveness that their businesses are demanding,” said Lubos Parobek, vice president of product for Dell KACE,.

“The Dell KACE K1000 Management Appliance provides a highly cost effective computer management solution to help organizations improve endpoint security and achieve regulatory compliance rapidly and without a steep learning curve,” Parobek added.

The appliance deployment solution is designed to address the system management needs of a variety of organizations. It can handle areas such as initial inventory and discovery, software distribution, configuration management, patching, security vulnerability remediation, asset management, service desk and reporting.

The Dell KACE K1000 Management Appliance will be available for purchase in early November. Pricing starts at $8,900.
