New Features Overcome Previously Unsolved Enterprise IT Challenges
While the new update/OS image selection mechanism streamlines endpoint management processes by enabling unprecedented management for x86 and Raspberry Pi devices in the same network at the speed of a single click, system administrators and IT managers around the world will be dazzled by cutting edge and intuitive new user role management capabilities. These capabilities streamline user role management, enabling enterprises to seamlessly configure permissions across their entire organization with unprecedented ease.
The new licenses limitation features also solves major system administration challenges by initiating unparalleled administration over the type of licenses and number allowed at any level.
Velma Lakes includes Stratodesk Cloud Xtension as well, extending NoTouch Center management through a standard internet connection to endpoints, wherever they are. No matter if they are based in the cloud or in the DMZ, Stratodesk Cloud Xtension intuitively validates connection and transmits critical data between NoTouch Center and endpoints, without a VPN. Shadowing and Webconnect work through Cloud Xtension, too.
New features available in NoTouch Center 4.3 also include integrations with Slack and Zoom, a fantastic new notification framework, allowing IT to know changes being made at once, easy drag and drop and right click functionalities, autosave, and much, much more.
Velma Lakes Solves Use Cases for IT Around the World
Close collaboration with major VDI leaders has enabled Stratodesk to solve use cases with Velma Lakes that are simply out of reach for other solution providers. And Stratodesk software is always at the vanguard in regards to supporting the latest VDI Clients and protocols, including Citrix Workspace App 1912 and VMware Horizon Client 5.3.0.
Additionally, a range of features are available in Velma Lakes that truly embolden IT to take endpoint management into new frontiers of ease, speed, and customizability for any hardware device, ranging from the most affordable Raspberry Pi, to the most powerful gaming PC, used in BYOD scenarios. Today’s businesses are as complex and unique as the individuals that work for them, meaning that endpoint management must be so fast, adaptable and forward thinking that it can anticipate these challenges, and be used to effectively solve them sometimes before organizations have even realized that the challenge exists.
Workers today require specific devices across the spectrum of hardware, making the need for a hardware agnostic solution more paramount than ever. They expect to get their work done from home, on the go, or in the office from one, two or even more devices. Stratodesk software covers this vast and complex spectrum of use cases and hardware more profoundly than ever thanks to Velma Lakes, enabling the best-in-class endpoint management interface for administrators and workers/end-users alike.
