Criston is able to increase control of the IT administrator on the infrastructure. Even when machines are powered off, non responsive, or without an OS installed, Criston Precision and Intel® vPro™ technology can significantly reduce IT costs by bringing unmanaged PC’s under control and thus reducing helpdesk visits.
Criston Precision Management Suite for PC’s with Intel® vPro™ technology tracks and manages IT assets across the entire organisation. The combined solution whilst reducing IT costs, also helps enforce the compliance of desktops and laptops, and helps administrators to easily maintain the availability of those assets from a remote location.
“The latest Criston Precision Management Suite for PC’s with Intel® vPro™ technology represents a major breakthrough for organisations tasked with reducing administration costs. The solution addresses the complexity of managing devices which are switched off or non responsive, by enabling remote power-up, restarting, and booting priority settings” said Haissam Hassan – Criston Product Marketing Manager. “IT Administrators can now accurately discover PCs and get inventories of their hardware assets. This solution also helps organisations address compliance issues in a simple, inexpensive, and non-intrusive way”
