KACE Endpoint Systems Management

KACE Endpoint Systems Management

Fast and automated OS provisioning

In today’s complex, multi-platform IT environment, manual disk imaging and image deployment processes fall far short. You simply cannot afford to waste valuable IT staff time struggling with one-off systems imaging, or risk employee productivity and effciency by failing to provide timely operating system imaging, software and proper drivers.

The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance offers a fast, automated way to execute large-scale system deployment across multiple remote sites, saving time and money with your endpoint systems management. This hardware-agnostic solution streamlines initial provisioning and ongoing administration of master system images and driver updates across diverse hardware platforms - reducing operational costs while ensuring that connected systems remain up to date and secure. Plus, it restores any user settings and files so users can immediately be productive with their newly imaged systems.

Unlike other solutions, KACE was purpose-built for growing mid-market organizations, so it does not need expensive professional services, dedicated hardware or heavily trained staff to function effectively. In fact, its integrated architecture enables most organizations to realize complete system implementation in less than two weeks.

Once in place, your KACE appliance will quickly deliver value. Its automation capabilities reduce complexity, improve accuracy and reliability, and free your IT staff to focus on other high-priority projects. For example, you can remotely deploy an OS to hundreds of machines at a time, and easily perform pre- and post-installation tasks such as formatting drives, applying computer names and distributing applications.

“The KACE Systems Deployment Appliance allowed us to create standard images for our desktop and laptop models. And it has been tremendously easy for us to deploy those images, so now we have a standard platform across the district.”
Tom Condo, Supervisor of IS Operations
