Image management with centralized disk erase

ScriptLogic : 23 January, 2009  (New Product)
Desktop Authority Image Center from ScriptLogic adds customisation functions and centralised disk erasure function
ScriptLogic has announced the availability of Desktop Authority Image Center 3.0, a desktop and server provisioning solution. Desktop Authority Image Center, an essential part of the Desktop Authority family of products, reduces the cost and time required to provision and re-deploy desktops and servers by offering simple, centralised control of capture, customisation and deployment of disk images.

"With one third of PCs either replaced or re-deployed each year, IT administrators need a solution to ease initial deployment as well as completely wipe the PC clean of sensitive data before disposal," said Jon Rolls, Vice President, Product Management, ScriptLogic. "ScriptLogic continues to enhance Desktop Authority Image Center and other management products to lower the total cost of ownership of Windows desktops throughout the enterprise."

Desktop Authority Image Center enables rapid deployment of PCs with corporate standard operating systems, patches, service packs and applications. Version 3.0 includes centralised disk erase functionality, making it easy for IT administrators to centrally wipe the contents of hard disk images on remote computers using specifications outlined by a number of bodies, including the US Department of Defence. As a result, IT administrators are ensured that they have a clean PC, free of sensitive data, for re-deployment or secure disposal.

Version 3.0 introduces extensive Wake-on-LAN functionality, featuring scheduled and on-demand imaging operations for computers whether they are powered on or off. This is ideal in IT environments, such as classrooms and training labs, where computers need to be regularly wiped clean as a whole and restored to a baseline. Desktop Authority Image Center also allows on-demand reboot of remote computers into imaging mode, eliminating the need for user or administrator initiation of the imaging process, and now brings support for Windows Server 2008.

Desktop Authority Image Center is part of ScriptLogic's Desktop Authority product line, multiple products which work together for comprehensive desktop lifecycle management. ScriptLogic's flagship product, Desktop Authority, provides granular configuration and control for the ongoing management of user's PCs, including power management to reduce energy costs and report on hardware and software inventory, and options for patch management, spyware removal and USB port lockdown. In addition, ScriptLogic's MSI Studio integrates with Desktop Authority to create and edit Windows Installer (MSI) packages for trouble-free application installs on desktops.
