Philiadelphia, PA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
Specops Software, a global innovation leader in desktop management and password management software, today announced its Self Service Portal, a new deployment management product that allows users to request applications without contacting the helpdesk. Organizations using the Self Service Portal (SSP) will be able to reduce IT costs while increasing overall agility and productivity.
“The Specops Self Service Portal takes user-driven installation of software and operating systems to the next level. Allowing users to manage their own software and operating system will ease the overhead on IT administrators,” said Thorbjörn Sjövold, chief technology officer, Specops Software.
SSP is a stand-alone product that can be used in combination with Specops Deploy or with another deployment solution that can utilize security groups for control. The product allows end users to request access to software and operating system installs in a fully automated way through a simple web portal, with the ability for management oversight and approval process. Added control is provided so that users may request specific software to be deployed to specific computers.
Installation of Specops SSP is quick and easy. The Setup Assistant helps the administrator install SSP in the organization’s Active Directory environment. The complete installation takes just a couple of hours so that users are able to begin working with the SSP in less than a day.
While the main focus of SSP is to manage application and operating system deployments, it can also be used to manage other scenarios like Access to Shares, Mail Distribution Lists or other security group features.
