In computing terms, a client is an application that is used to access a server. These clients may or may not be able to actually run programs or communicate with other servers or computers. HP Client Automation will automatically track, monitor, update, and repair clients so that this does not have to be done manually.
The Client Automation software provides you with vital information on the status of your devices, no matter where they are located and ensures that the right tools, updates, and settings are appropriately maintained. This software can manage all clients across your environment, including mobile and remote users, so you can ensure that mobile users have confidence in the security of their clients, all the while allowing you to remain in control over all devices within the environment.
The software packages contain a large number of features and levels depending on the needs and size of the environment you wish to manage. There are three levels of software including the starter, standard, and enterprise editions, which include increasingly complex tools as you move from the starter to the enterprise packages.
The starter package provides hardware management and inventory, software inventory, and the ability to remotely control your settings and features. The standard edition, which includes all the features of the starter package, as well as software installation, upgrading, and patch deployment and management. It allows you to monitor application usage and develop desired settings for migration from one Operating System or client to another. The enterprise edition, which includes all the features available on the previous two editions, and also provides tools for large, more complex computing environments and allows for more personally-tailored automation options than the other two versions.
HP Client Automation offers a variety of advantages for users. This software can lower operating costs by a significant margin in that its automated nature saves valuable time that is used to be spent manually managing all your clients. This also reduces errors that tend to crop up with manual installation, troubleshooting, updating, etc.
With this software you also receive powerful management of your security needs. Since it regularly scans the environment, it will quickly pick up the threats; the status of your security programs, as well as any vulnerability that your environment might be susceptible to. The Client Automation software then provides users with basic reports that allow them to prioritize their focus.
HP Client Automation also provides compliance reporting management, which allows users to automate their regulatory and compliance reporting. As with the security management tool, the results of the scan will be shown in basic reports. As requirement for security compliance, reporting helps ensures the safety and security of all client devices across the environment which continues to increase in complexity. Having an automated tool that helps users manage this aspect of their environment is time and money saver.
This software also has a “green” management tool that automatically controls power consumption. This tool will power down workstations at a specified time so that desktops and PCs are not running when there is nobody to use them.
