If you are an IT professional responsible for maintaining thousands or millions of Windows endpoints, questions like this may be keeping you up at night:
- Are you sure all your applications—security, in-house and third-party—are current, configured correctly and running successfully?
- Do you know if all your Windows endpoints are operating within company policies for privacy, security and regulatory compliance?
- If you discover a security breach or vulnerability, do you a have the ability to quickly find out which machines are affected, and automatically remediate them across a global enterprise?
When you combine SCCM with Adaptiva Client Health™, you can rest easy. Adaptiva Client Health lets SCCM handle those things quickly, easily and automatically. Some of the largest companies in the world, including many in the Fortune 500 and Global 1,000, are using Client Health. One international bank runs 800,000 health checks on its endpoints daily to instantly detect and remediate possible issues.
Client Health At-a-Glance
When SCCM 2012 was released, Microsoft included a tool called CCMEval (a.k.a. SCCM Health Checks). It includes pre-defined health checks and remediations aimed at maintaining the health of SCCM client agent itself.
While Adaptiva Client Health comes with over twice as many pre-built health checks and remediations as SCCM, static checks are just a tiny fraction of what Adaptiva Client Health does. This table provides a quick look at what Adaptiva adds to SCCM.
Custom Health Checks and Remediations
While SCCM Health Checks are limited to a pre-defined set of checks and remediations, Adaptiva Client Health provides a visual WorkFlow Designer and Engine. Workflows are easy to build and simple to deploy. Adaptiva Client Health can quickly detect, troubleshoot and remediate issues across hundreds of thousands of systems—all automatically. This table shows some basic capabilities, but the possibilities are limitless and can be infinitely more powerful.
For smaller companies concerned only with the health of the SCCM client itself, and running Microsoft security technologies exclusively, the native SCCM Health Checks may meet your limited needs. For companies looking to maintain the health and security of all settings and applications, as well as Windows itself, Adaptiva Client Health gives SCCM true global health automation. Adaptiva also gives administrators the flexibility to easily create their own checks and remediations as new endpoint health, security and compliance issues arise. Also, if a company is using third-party security software, Adaptiva can ensure your endpoints are properly secured.
