ManageEngine Adds Mac Patch Management to Desktop Central

End-to-End Automation from Patch Detection to Deployment for Mac OS X Systems

PLEASANTON, Calif. - April 11, 2013 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced patch management support for Apple Mac systems in the latest release of Desktop Central, the company’s desktop and mobile device management (MDM) software. From a central location, IT organizations running Desktop Central can now manage desktops, laptops and servers running Mac OS X 10.6 or later. 

The Apple Mac is enjoying steady, growing adoption in the enterprise. For fiscal year 2012, Apple reported 18.1 million Macs were sold, a 6.5 percent growth compared to the previous fiscal year. Despite the Mac’s growing popularity, many enterprises continue to manage Macs using haphazard, manual procedures that create real-time problems when performing patch updates and system maintenance for Macs. 

"We are observing a steady growth of Mac computers across all verticals," said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, director of product management at ManageEngine. "But it only takes a few Macs on a network to create a complicated, time-consuming management chore for IT admins to manage manually. To help enterprises manage the Mac desktops and laptops, we're rolling out patch management support for Macs. Going forward, we will add more features for Mac management including software deployment, remote control and more."

Mac Patch Management Highlights

The patch management support for Macs in Desktop Central helps IT staff overcome the vulnerabilities that create security weakness, corrupt critical system data or cause system unavailability. Highlights of the new Mac patch management capabilities include:

Pricing and Availability
