FrontRange Announces Latest IT Audit Version

September 23, 2008

FrontRange Solutions (News - Alert) has announced the latest version of its IT audit product, Centennial Discovery 8.0, which company officials say "introduces an integrated approach to populating Service Management and Client Lifecycle Management products with information about all IT assets on the network."
 
Centennial Discovery 8.0 is the first new version of the product since FrontRange acquired Centennial Software in April 2008. This version, was developed to provide "a direct feed from its asset repository into existing FrontRange software modules: FrontRange IT Service Management, FrontRange Client Lifecycle (formerly Enteo, which FrontRange acquired in 2007) and FrontRange's flagship Help Desk software, called HEAT products."
 
Centennial Discovery 8.0 also provides software installation and usage information to the Centennial License Manager product.
 
"One of the main criticisms leveled at framework products is that they lack integration between components and are expensive to customize," says Andy Burton, the newly appointed vice president for the Infrastructure Management Group at FrontRange.
 
Steve Dryer, CEO of SMA (News - Alert) Management Systems, a FrontRange reseller in North America, sees a great market opportunity for the integrated products. "The Centennial IT asset discovery and license management products are popular with customers," he noted, adding that the integration will "add value to the FrontRange IT infrastructure and service management products."
 
The company is offering a free 30-day trial available at www.frontrange.com/discovery.
 
Earlier this month, FrontRange announced the availability of DeviceWall 5.0, the latest version of its endpoint security product. It extends the product's USB control and data encryption capabilities to PCs running the Windows Vista operating system, giving security managers a single product to manage security across heterogeneous environments. 
 
Kevin J. Smith, vice president of products at FrontRange, said at the time that more companies are introducing Windows Vista onto their corporate networks, "so it is important that they are able to apply the same security policies created for the rest of the IT infrastructure to any new PCs that are purchased."
 
DeviceWall provides single-screen administration of security policies that manage computer users' access to all types of portable storage devices across the corporate network, "giving the administrators the granularity to manage individual device types as well as management reports to monitor device usage," company officials say.
 
DeviceWall 5.0 was the first product release since FrontRange Solutions acquired Centennial Software in April 2008. It's available immediately.
