Newly launched software services designed to simplify endpoint management are Lenovo’s Deployment Assistant (LDA) and Lenovo Manageability Commander (LMC), that integrate with Microsoft and Intel technology, respectively, to help with remote accessing, managing, and better security of Lenovo devices.
Lenovo Deployment Assistant (LDA) lets users add content to Microsoft’s Endpoint Configuration Manager. LDA streamlines the process of pushing out system updates to remote devices for IT administrators.
The new remote and hybrid way of working is creating security risks as employees use both personal and company equipment.
Ideal for any company already using Lenovo’s System Update, Dock Manager, and Commercial Vantage software solutions, LDA can help reduce the complexities associated with remote configuration management by automating large-scale firmware updates and system patches. LDA can also be used to monitor the health of endpoint devices and help diagnose hardware failures from a remote location.
Accessibility on command
Lenovo Manageability Commander (LMC) is a cloud-provisioned endpoint management console that unites DASH standards and the Intel vPro platform to enable both in-band and out-of-band access capabilities (including remote boot and control).
Through integration with Intel Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel EMA), IT admins can use LMC to easily connect to remote devices powered by Intel Core vPro processors, whether they are inside or outside the firewall, connected via WiFi or wired Ethernet, or even if they have an inoperable operating system.
LMC allows administrators to isolate compromised devices to prevent the spread of viruses and it can also help block security risks that could lead to data leaks.
“Lenovo Deployment Assistant and Lenovo Manageability Commander give IT administrators the access and visibility they need to provide a greater level of support, reducing employee downtime and maintaining positive end user experiences in a remote or hybrid work environment,” said John Stamer, Vice President of International Commercial Services within Lenovo’s Solutions & Services Group.
