NetSupport DNA 3 also introduces a new Internet Gateway component ensuring that all IT assets, even those at remote locations are included and managed in real time. The Internet Gateway provides secure IP communications over the internet for managing assets that may ordinarily be ‘hidden’ on a remote network or behind firewalls.
Among a number of other feature enhancements, NetSupport DNA now fully integrates with Active Directory enabling customers to automatically reflect all PCs and Users within their DNA Console as a mirror to their Active Directory structure. Any changed made in AD will automatically apply within NetSupport DNA.
The Software Asset management capabilities have been further extended to provide a detailed summary of both installed programs and installed applications detected on each PC, providing a simpler way of managing programs licenses as a suite such as Microsoft Office. To compliment this, DNA also allows specific file types to be located and recorded on all computers as an effective way of ensuring business documents are not stored locally and missing backup routines or that valuable disk space is not being lost to users music collections. In addition full support is provided for recording, tracking and the management of software licences and their maintenance contracts.
In addition to this and a wealth of additional updates, NetSupport DNA 3 also includes a new and intuitive user experience, with a fresh and flexible interface, engaging charts and a “download to deployed“ timescale of as little as 30 minutes.
