Now, SDC offers the only alternative to the confusing landscape of what open source is present in the enterprise, and how to take control of it to meet corporate guidelines.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Genuitec, LLC, the leader in enterprise open source management, has just released update 2 to its Secure Delivery Center 2012 (SDC) product. Now, enterprise IT administrators can breathe a little easier by taking charge of existing open source software within their companies. As managers know, using open source in the enterprise can present challenges with each configuration, version used, and security around software projects (not to mention legal issues). Now, SDC offers the only alternative to the confusing landscape of what open source is present in the enterprise, and how to take control of it to meet corporate guidelines.
“SDC not only allows you to ‘tack on’ security and management capabilities to existing Eclipse product installations, but also to create a private marketplace of software for developer consumption,” explained Tim Webb, project manager for SDC. “By offering their developers a controlled combination of OSS and proprietary software, companies across the globe are creating their own internal Eclipse ‘App Stores’ that they can modify and control on a per-team basis.”

SDC is designed to operate behind a firewall and allows IT managers and project leads to distribute tooling (with customizable, easily-consumed installers) to each project team.
SDC Update 2 has many new features including:
1. Deliver On-Demand to existing Eclipse Installations
2. Deliver custom Secure Marketplace catalogs behind the firewall
3. Delegate administrative rights with Delivery Groups
4. Archive and recover history IDE packages with Snapshots
5. Assign authentication levels for Packages & Groups
6. Extend with External Authentication to your existing enterprise services
7. Optimize network connected installers for your enterprise
8. Include arbitrary files in automated workspace configuration
9. Deliver end-user notifications and messaging seamlessly
10. Java 1.7 support
Details for each feature can be found here: http://ow.ly/cDUfv
Secure Delivery Center is ready out-of-the-box for installation, and it requires only a few, easy questions answered about company policies and software governance before acting as an inside-the-firewall Eclipse and MyEclipse management tool.
Granularity in its reporting give a clear and concise understanding of how Eclipse or MyEclipse is used, what tool stacks and versions work the best on each project, and which configurations are successful in project development.
SDC starts at only about $45 per developer. Contact sales(at)genuitec.com for more details.
