LANrev 5.0 supports FDCC
LANrev LP has launched the newest version of its systems management software, LANrev 5.0. The software allows IT administrators to monitor/adapt network architecture as well as manage systems and software installed on those computers. Version 5 offers advanced power management, a redesigned user interface, and others changes to software distribution, enhanced licensing monitoring, and vulnerability management through FDCC scanner support. The new system is rated to save as much as $75 per computer each year, a huge number when applied to an enterprise setting. It assigns multiple power-saving schedules to clients, with schedules created by power-usage numbers from the clients themselves.
LANrev 5.0 also adds an improved user interface, with a centralized window and tabbed viewing. Asset inventory has been added, and endpoint security and vulnerability management has been upgraded. The FDCC (Federal Desktop Core Configuration) scanner checks security on each computer in the system and features access and remote control features with logging.
Requirements for LANrev 5.0 are a Mac OS X 10.4 or higher server with client machines requiring Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher. LanRev also supports Windows 2000 SP4 or newer. Prices are available via company contact.
