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

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.
