SEATTLE, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Adaptiva, the market leader in smart scaling systems management, today announced the new release of the company's endpoint health and security engine, Client Health™. Client Health comes prepackaged with 75 automated client health checks that rapidly identify and fix issues across 16 different endpoint management categories including security, Windows operating system configuration, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager client health, and more. The new release also includes an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop WorkFlow Designer which enterprises can use to create custom health checks and remediation processes in seconds.
The self-managing capabilities of Client Health dramatically reduce the time and effort it takes for enterprises to gain visibility and control over endpoint health and security issues, a key focus for IT organizations in 2017. Analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC) stated in their Worldwide Semiannual Security Spending Guide that worldwide revenues for security-related hardware, software, and services will grow from $73.7 billion in 2016 to $101.6 billion in 2020. They forecasted that endpoint security software, which includes products like Client Health, will drive 12.6%, or $9.3 billion in total revenues in 2016. "We have seen our systems management customers and prospects increasingly allocate more of their budgets for endpoint troubleshooting and remediation this year," said Jim Souders, chief operating officer, Adaptiva. "Patching security vulnerabilities and combating attacks where they typically arise, on end user devices, is a key enterprise initiative. Unfortunately, even the best IT pros can't keep up with the pace of troubleshooting and fixing issues on 1000s of devices in hundreds of locations. With Client Health, IT professionals simply define their endpoint health and security policies and then Adaptiva automates their enforcement. It's a game-changing endpoint management capability for enterprises." Unlike competitive alternatives that simply provide visibility into health and security issues, Client Health proactively monitors the health of endpoints and automatically resolves any issues without the need for manual efforts. It then re-tests endpoints for compliance against the health checks and reports back on success rates. The product uses Adaptiva's network-aware and smart scaling peer-to-peer technology to perform health checks and remediation at rapid speeds.
