Fremont, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2005
Everdream Corporation, the leading provider of hosted and managed PC services, today announced the latest release of its Everdream Control Center (ECC) Âan on-demand platform that businesses in over 60 countries depend on for the management, security, and support of their computer assets. New features incorporate powerful new tracking and analytics capabilities; helping companies improve IT asset management, enforce corporate policies and procedures, while at the same time making it even easier to deploy EverdreamÂs services.
Like all enhancements to EverdreamÂs Software as a Service offering, these features and capabilities will become immediately available on the day of release. Specifically, the new features include:
Â Improved Remote Deployment CapabilitiesÂallowing users to remotely identify any device on the network and to push out the Everdream agent to devices. This enables a deployment to take place in a matter of days or even hours, without requiring upfront investment in infrastructure, further boosting Everdream's core value proposition.
Â Software Usage TrackingÂidentifying individual system usage of any software title, helping customers to better manage their license compliance requirements.
Â Detailed Hardware and Software HistoryÂtracking changes to the software inventory as well as to the hardware inventory, further extending Everdream's asset management capabilities.
Â Improved Patch Management Reporting CapabilitiesÂproviding C-level executive reporting so they can easily determine if their environment is patch compliant.
ÂThe complexities of managing a business in todayÂs regulatory climate continue to increase,Â said Gary Griffiths, president and CEO of Everdream. ÂLegislation like Sarbanes-Oxley places additional stress on already-overburdened IT staffs. This latest release of our services is designed to further simplify and expedite the identification, security, and management of IT assets.Â
The new edition enhances EverdreamÂs network scan capability, dramatically reducing the time of deployment while simply and easily detecting possible security vulnerabilities on the network. Administrators use this scan to identify all devices on the networkÂand from this scan can instantly install the EverdreamÂs agent to all PCs on the network. Compared to traditional licensed enterprise software suites that can take months to deploy, Everdream provides virtually instantaneous discovery of all devices on the network, and then provides for immediate protection and management of these assets.
Once deployed, this agent initiates PC support through communication with the ECC and provides system inventory information, a user-messaging system, and remote control capabilities. It also enables software distribution and deployment of applications for other managed services like virus protection, system backup, and patch management.
Through the Everdream Control Center, IT staff can perform over 90 critical desktop management operations from a single interface. Asset Management allows IT managers to maintain a precise hardware and software inventory for PC and mobile systems across the organization. EverdreamÂs patented software distribution service enables the rapid deployment of any application to any online user at any timeÂautomatically.
Online backup protects users by securely and automatically backing up their data to fully redundant, off-site storage facilities, while EverdreamÂs virus protection service automatically updates the PCÂs defensive systems to quickly combat new viruses. EverdreamÂs award winning Help Desk provides 24x7x365 live, single pointÂofÂcontact support for hardware and software technical issues.
