Viewfinity Launches Cloud Computing Systems Management

In a move that will reduce the cost and time companies spend on IT, Viewfinity today announced the release of version 2.5 of its cloud computing systems and privilege management solution for laptops, desktops and servers.

Viewfinity's cloud computing model offers companies a cost-effective approach to systems and privilege management. Based on its foundation in application encapsulation, the Viewfinity solution is purposely architected to provide capabilities that focus on reducing the cost and time related to IT operations and support by providing the most flexible, secure and manageable environment for in-house and mobile workforces.

"Our cloud-computing software delivery model and extended privilege management features allow us to supplement or replace traditional systems management with no specialized IT experience required and no need to purchase and install a management platform and server," said Gil Rapaport, President of Viewfinity, "Our approach lets IT administers focus immediately on delivering services end users need to be productive, rather than the typical six month setup and subsequent ongoing administering of legacy on-premise management systems."

Viewfinity Suites

  • Systems Management: Centralized and silent software deployment, asset inventory, remote desktop, power management and unique IT support features, including activity recording and rollback/undo of user personality components. Free for up to 50 PCs.

  • Privilege Management: Flexible blocking/whitelisting, privilege elevation, automated policy management and auditing, all through granular regulation of administrator rights

  • User Migration: Centralized, domain-based, multi-user migration management capabilities for XP or Vista to Windows 7. Free thru Q1 2010.

Viewfinity Systems Management annual subscription lists for $48 per desktop and $28 per desktop annually for its Privilege Management product.

To date, leading law firms, large state health government agencies, several hospitals, technology companies and MSPs are successfully using Viewfinity to manage thousands of distributed desktops.

"We looked at several vendors and selected Viewfinity because of its ability to manage our mobile and distributed PCs over a secure internet connection. Being able to control lockdown policies and elevate privileges on-the-fly, regardless of the end-user's location, and do that cleanly, is very powerful," said Ben Weinberger, CIO, Lathrop & Gage.

Joseph Mercadante, Owner of JP Merc & Co, a managed service provider, recalls "when we were an early stage managed services provider, we focused on stabilizing and gaining efficiencies on back-end systems. Our maturity in this market has forged a new frontier for us: gain control at the desktop level. Viewfinity's suite of cloud-delivered desktop remediation features, including its advanced troubleshooting capabilities and ability to deploy to remote environments, offers us the desktop-level control and mobile worker reach we need, translating into value-add for our clients."
