Kaseya Delivers Enhanced Functionality, Performance and Usability for IT Administrators

Announces Enterprise Class Discovery, Powerful Automated Policy Management, and Customized Reports for Greater Productivity of IT Services

LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Kaseya®, the leading global provider of automated IT systems management services, today announced a new set of software tools delivering enhanced functionality, performance and usability to increase productivity for corporate IT professionals and managed service providers (MSPs). With the latest release of Kaseya, the company builds on its core principles of automated IT systems management services to deliver new consolidated network discovery, enhanced policy management for continuous compliance, and personalized custom reporting to time-strapped IT administrators.

In addition, customers new to Kaseya will appreciate the streamlined on-boarding process and cutting-edge best practices management content enabling new MSPs or IT departments to quickly begin monitoring and managing the health of their network. The best practice management offering includes hundreds of pre-defined views by device type, operating system, hardware profile, and maintenance routines as well as systems monitoring that have been proven over years of experience and also customer feedback to deliver the most successful results and use of the Kaseya Platform.

The new Kaseya Discovery module combines the power of multiple network scanning methods to properly fingerprint and identify a device across remote networks from a central management interface. Additionally, the Discovery module gives the IT administrator a simplified way to find, organize and automate the delivery of IT services based on defined policies. To further enhance IT administrators' productivity, the software delivers robust automated policy management to ensure service delivery and continuous compliance. With the enhanced policy management module, systems are continuously monitored with full visibility of adherence to policy allowing IT professionals to focus efforts on systems that are not in alignment with the policy.

With Kaseya's customized reporting feature, customers are now able to use its intuitive, easy, drag-and-drop interface to create custom reports that provide complete visibility of IT services tailored for specific audiences with multiple delivery methods.

With this new product release, Kaseya has also improved usability and simplified navigation across the entire platform to increase administrator productivity.

"Since its inception, Kaseya has been committed to unifying IT management to address the most critical enterprise requirements from a single centralized interface," noted Steve Brasen, managing research director at Enterprise Management Associates. "The capstone, on a series of significant enhancements introduced to the product set in the last year or so, is the release of Version 6.3 of the Kaseya framework which consolidates the management experience through improved integration, functional enhancements, and the simplification of key support practices."

"The Kaseya v6.3 release reflects the company's understanding of customer needs," according to Robert Young, research manager, IDC.

Kaseya has responded to these challenges with product enhancements that provide IT professionals with consolidated and customizable discovery, automation, and reporting capabilities, enabling them to more effectively manage a wide range of IS resources and helping to deliver reliable and efficient services to business users. "

"The newly enhanced reporting engine makes creating reports simple yet comprehensive, allowing us to assemble the right data in a way we need for ourselves and our clientele," said Jory Lane, president, Epic Technical Solutions.

"You asked... Kaseya answered. Kaseya v6.3 includes a 'Standard Content Pack' full of predefined procedures, monitor sets, reports, and policies to help you hit the ground running," said Scott Brown, president, TimbukTech.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
There will be new vendors providing applications, middleware, and connected devices to support the thriving IoT ecosystem.
