JAMF Recon Suite goes solo
JAMF Software has announced that its Recon Suite, which was previously attached to its client management system, is now available in a solo release. The program is an inventory collection tool, and scans networks not only for all attached computers, but also everything from hardware and operating systems to installed apps, fonts and patches. System administrators can thus conduct audits automatically, without having to visit each machine. The standard inventory can take less than 45 seconds, and can track warranty and maintenance schedules.
The software comes bundled with versions for both Mac OS X and Windows, and uses technologies supported by Mac OS X Server including Tomcat and MySQL. The Mac client is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.2 or higher, including Mac OS X Leopard. Buyers must contact JAMF for pricing.
