Why choose the KACE Systems Management Appliance?

IT professionals today are faced with managing and securing a growing number of devices, operating systems and types of users. The scope, sophistication and speed of change in their environment continue to accelerate, but the staff and budgetary resources needed to manage it have not kept pace. Dell KACE solutions make efficient management of the entire IT infrastructure a reality — servers, Windows PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, printers, storage, routers and other non-computing devices in preparation for the Internet of Things. KACE does this by providing a low-cost alternative to computer management software using an appliance-based architecture. Simply plug the KACE solution into your network, give it an IP address, and you are ready to begin anypoint management for all connected devices in your environment. The result: comprehensive anypoint systems management that is easy-to-use and that can be more economical than software-only alternatives.
