Take control of asset inventory, software usage, and license compliance. With ZENworks Asset Management, you can tell exactly what software is running in your organization; gain a complete, accurate view of all your software licenses; allocate licenses across departments, sites, or cost centers; and learn exactly how software inventories and licensing data relate to each other.
Secure your network with pre-tested patches
See (and patch) the security holes - and prove it. It's not enough that you know you patched it - sometimes you have to prove it to auditors. ZENworks Patch Management helps you assess security risks automatically, accurately and comprehensively. Enterprise-wide monitoring maintains and monitors patch compliance throughout the entire enterprise. And an improved user interface and enhanced enterprise reporting make it even easier to keep your whole enterprise patched and secure. Find out how ZENworks Patch Management can reduce the IT labor of manual patching by over 90 percent.
Control security on endpoint devices
Protect company secrets from leaking out at wireless hotspots or walking away on a thumb drive. ZENworks Endpoint Security Management provides a scalable and simple method for creating, distributing, enforcing, and monitoring security policies on endpoint devices, without forcing users to make security decisions or adjust settings. Secure the data stored on the endpoint and on removable media by encrypting files so they can only be read by authorized users. Protect sensitive information on lost or stolen mobile computers - so a stolen laptop doesn't spell disaster.
NOVELL STORAGE MANAGER FEATURES:
Generate quick ROI by automating storage tasks. If you have a large, dynamic user population, Novell Storage Manager can help you generate a substantial return on investment (ROI). That's because provisioning rights settings, renames, storage transfers, vaulting, disposition, and reassignments are addressed automatically.
Provision storage automatically
Make life easier for your IT department. Rather than burdening your IT help desk personnel with completing single instance user and group storage tasks, let Novell Storage Manager perform these tasks automatically. Based on user identity, role, and policies that you set up, a user home directory can be set up and provisioned with any files and group storage access needed for a particular role in the organization. Novell Storage Manager then continues to manage the storage quota, storage content, storage disposition or archiving, and much more.
Policies you create in Novell eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory enforce storage compliance automatically. Whether it's the removal of files not permitted for storage in the network home directory, or the strict adherence to industry or government regulations pertaining to storage archiving, Novell Storage Manager assures that your storage compliance needs are met.
Migrate storage transparently
Move data without any impact on users. Whether it's consolidating servers or moving archived data to less expensive storage, data migration projects are a fact of IT life. Fortunately, Novell Storage Manager can automate storage migrations quickly and easily through the policies that you create. Moving storage from one device to another is as simple as changing a policy path and then initiating the migration request.
Allocate storage by role
Different roles in an organization oftentimes require different storage needs, including network home directory storage space needed for the organization's various roles. Additionally, a user's role in the organization will determine what group storage areas the user will need access to. Novell Storage Manager not only automates the creation of user storage based on role, but automatically grants access to collaborative storage areas.
Control storage by file type
Prevent people from storing specific file types. Most organizations have written policies stating what types of files can and cannot be stored on network storage resources. Unfortunately, because enforcement of these policies must be done manually, enforcement actions are oftentimes delayed or not addressed at all. Novell Storage Manager lets you create and store policies which include allowable file types - in Novell eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory-and then removes unallowable file types automatically.
Deal with directories when people leave
Don't lose intellectual property when people leave the company. Novell Storage Manager lets you set up policies for automating the transition of home directories of employees that leave the company. You can configure rules to automatically vault storage, defer the cleanup of storage for a set number of days, or queue the storage to a defined manager. There are also options for moving a former employee's status to inactive.
Track and locate moved dataProduct Highlights
A constant challenge among network administrators is assuring the availability of network storage disk space. This oftentimes means the movement of older data from more expensive primary storage devices to less-expensive secondary or tertiary backup storage devices. Over the lifetime of a network-stored file, it can reside in many different physical locations.
