Parallels® today unveiled Parallels Mac Management 6 for Microsoft SCCM, which extends Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) functionality and enables IT managers to use one pane of glass to manage both PC and Mac® computers with ease, increased efficiency, and higher productivity.

Remote Wipe/Lock, which allows IT managers to lock a Mac or erase all data in the event it is lost or stolen, is a new data security compliance feature of Parallels Mac Management 6 for Microsoft SCCM, and now provides full Mac lifecycle management.

Parallels Mac Management 6 supports Microsoft SCCM’s software metering, which enables IT managers to monitor and collect software usage data from Mac clients and make money-saving business decisions based on that data. For example, now IT admins can determine how often Mac end users use each software application, which applications are used most frequently, and which licenses should be discontinued or renewed.

From an efficiency standpoint, Parallels Mac Management makes it easy for IT personnel to schedule software deployments and maintenance so they can minimize the impact on end user productivity, network bandwidth software deployments and maintenance in their organization. IT managers can also schedule application installations and software package deployment when a Mac is not in use.

“The highest levels of data security are critical for businesses today,” said Jack Zubarev, Parallels president. “With the increased penetration of the Mac into the enterprise, IT admins need a quick and effective method to securely manage both Mac and PC computers through Microsoft SCCM. Parallels Mac Management 6 provides IT departments a variety of tools that make it simple to manage and control Mac computers and Mac applications.”

Customer feedback inspired many efficiency improvements associated with the new task sequence steps, which strengthen on-screen display (OSD) features including:

• Install SCCM Application Ability to re-use SCCM applications for macOS image deployment;
• Format and Partition Disk Formats and partitions a specified disk on a target Mac;
• Join to Domain Improved support with an additional setting requiring mobile confirmation;
• Copy-Paste Task Sequence Steps Allows IT admins to copy and paste task sequence steps between task sequences;
• Modeless Task Sequence Properties Window Edit multiple task sequences simultaneously;
• Custom Settings Payload Add a custom settings payload to a configuration profile via the built-in editor;
• Duplicate Profile Prevention Checks if configuration profile has already been applied as part of a baseline and all settings are correctly enforced.

“Slalom is a rapidly growing organization with 4,500 employees in 25 markets, and we have seen our Mac footprint grow to almost 25 percent of all devices in a short period of time,” said Anthony McGinnis, Operations Engineer for Slalom (slalom.com). “This has presented us with unique challenges that Parallels Mac Management for Microsoft SCCM has consistently been able to meet. The ability to manage Mac and PC computers within the same platform has allowed us to easily address our increasingly stringent security, reporting, and administrative needs without requiring an increase in staff or further infrastructure.”

Parallels Mac Management 6 for Microsoft SCCM empowers IT admins and system architects, as well as CIOs, to quickly and cost-effectively extend their current Microsoft SCCM infrastructure to control Mac and PC computers through one interface. IT departments now have more tools at their disposal to increase security, efficiency and even help drive business decisions without the cost of an additional infrastructure.
