David Lopez says in a CA Client Automation review
IT Supporting Engineer at Uns energy corp
Everything is automated. We do software delivery through our package. We create some software packages on CA, and then we create groups in the tool. We can then deploy that package instead of installing the software manually into each computer. We can just push it out to the entire corporation if we want to. But in some cases, not everyone uses the software, so we just select a group of computers, or a department, and we push out the software to that group. It is also really easy to use. You just schedule a job and create a package of software, and everything just works. The tool was already in place when I started at my workplace and as I learned to use it I was amazed that everything could be done with a few clicks. View full review »
Sameer Abdool says in a ManageEngine Desktop Central review
ICT Support Analyst & SNN/LLPG officer at a local government with 501-1,000 employees
Secure USB has allowed us to secure USB ports on our PCs, thus improving our PSN compliance. The main selling point is that it's centralized. We can easily control which system should have access to what and we’re also able to produce a report in case of a security issue. Patch Management provides us with the ability to patch third-party software on terminal servers. This has improved productivity in terms of being able to automate the process as well as targeting the rights OUs, Security Groups, etc. I have successfully decommissioned my WSUS server and now all Microsoft updates are performed using the “Automate Patch Deployment”. “Deployment Policy”: It provides me with the ability to schedule server/non-server reboots. This has, for the time being, been the solution for a Microsoft bug for server 2012 R2 whereby a server does not properly reboot after MS updates been applied and forcefully does it when the user logs on instead.
