New Web-based Service Enables IT Administrators to Manage Devices
Across a Deployment in Real-Time
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
PULSE BOOTH #D314— Toshiba’s Digital
Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information
Systems, Inc., today announced Toshiba Cloud Client Manager (TCCM) – a
cloud service that allows IT administrators to easily manage end-point
devices across a deployment by providing comprehensive tools to ensure
device efficiency and compliance. Using a standard web browser, IT
administrators can now oversee and control devices online, in real-time,
without the need to invest in servers and dedicated management software.
“Today’s mobile workforce demands that IT professionals are more agile
and resourceful than ever,” said Patrick Mani, vice president of sales,
Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division.
“Toshiba Cloud Client Manager delivers smart, secure and reliable
enterprise-level technology all through the cloud, using a standard web
browser, ensuring that IT administrators can keep their business on the
leading edge, without investing in extra servers and software.”
TCCM supports mixed product and operating system environments, allowing
multiple devices to be managed easily, regardless of platform, OS or
user scenario. Not only does this improve organizational efficiency and
maintain uptime, it increases productivity as users can access data and
apps seamlessly across PCs, laptops, smartphones and tablets.
TCCM also automates the administration and support systems that would
otherwise need to be looked after manually. For the IT administrators,
this means more agile endpoint management via a single, intuitive
graphical interface that can be accessed online – all within an
architecture that performs tasks quickly and easily.
As part of the service, TCCM offers solutions for patch management,
power management and HDD health monitoring. Additional modules on the
roadmap include IT asset management, software management and a Mobile
More Relevant Updates and Shorter Patch Times
As patches are released by software vendors, the Toshiba patch
management function automatically recognizes which ones are needed for
each device, across multiple operating systems and applications. This
allows only the relevant updates to be applied, which makes patch times
much quicker and ensures end-point devices within the business are as
safe and secure as possible.
Cutting Down on Power Consumption
The Toshiba power management function is designed to gather information
on the power being consumed – daily, hourly or every two hours. Power
settings can also be monitored through a power plan and Peak Shift
settings, which provides intelligent balancing between main power and
battery power. Based on the usage levels, the IT administrator can then
take control to lower consumption across the business by prohibiting a
power change setting by a user, applying a specific setting or providing
power-saving software to each endpoint device.
Minimizing Data Loss and Downtime
TCCM’S HDD health monitoring module offers advance warning before
failure occurs, so data can be backed up in time. Using a
Toshiba-developed algorithm, potential defects are computed, allowing
companies to take proactive steps, such as data backups or replacing
vulnerable HDDs as part of an effective business continuity plan.
