JAMF Software has released plug-ins for Windows management systems including Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 (SCCM) and Altiris Client Management Suite.
The Casper Suite is management software for the entire Apple platform, enabling organizations to manage and secure devices as they respond to the growth of Apple in the enterprise. With the release of plug-ins that integrate with the latest versions of the leading Windows management systems, enterprise organizations are immediately able to manage the Apple platform by using the Casper Suite alongside existing infrastructure.
Support for Microsoft SCCM 2012 and Altiris Client Management Suite 7.1
In environments where Apple devices are flooding into traditionally PC-based organizations, IT management is often faced with the dilemma of settling on a single cross-platform product that has lesser capabilities for one platform or training administrators to work with parallel systems that have stronger platform-specific capabilities but do not allow for centralized reporting, ays Doug Rhoten, Development Manager, Plug-Ins at JAMF Software.
With JAMF Software’s plug-in architecture, IT administrators can use the capabilities of the Casper Suite to manage their Apple devices, while hardware and software data is synced in real-time to their existing Windows management solution to ensure that inventory is always up-to-date for compliance and auditing, he adds. By bridging the gap between systems, plug-ins allow organizations to use the best tool for the job on both the Windows and Apple platforms while providing a seamless experience for end users without compromising on quality, according to Rhoten.
