KACE Cloud Product Notification

Product Release

LATEST – April 2024

KACE Cloud

We are excited to announce our most recent updates to KACE Cloud.

April 2024

In our latest release, we are introducing the following features:

ŸDevice Registration

KACE is pleased to announce the General Availability of our new Device Registration functionality. KACE Cloud now supports registering devices through the direct installation of the KACE Cloud agent on a device enabling agent-based management of those devices, including devices that do not support an MDM protocol, such as those running Microsoft Windows Server, or devices that are already managed through another MDM product.

Once registered, customers can perform any agent-based management capabilities, such as Patching, Software Distribution, and Inventory.

Any supported Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 11, Windows Server 2016-2022, and macOS 12 or later device can be registered with KACE Cloud.

Ÿ Support for Microsoft Windows Servers

Device Registration includes the ability to manage Microsoft Windows Servers 2016 or later.  You can now install software, retrieve device inventory, and patch Windows Server devices. However, you cannot perform any MDM-based management functionality, as Windows Server does not support the MDM protocol.

Ÿ Support for co-managing devices with other MDM solutions

Customers who have already invested in other MDM solutions, such as Microsoft Intune or VMWare Workspace One, can now register devices with KACE Cloud to utilize our patching, software distribution, and inventory capabilities. Take advantage of our extensive third-party app catalog and granular, policy-based patching solution to ensure your devices are secure without relying on Microsoft’s automatic update system.

Ÿ Agent-based management functionality

KACE Cloud now supports three primary capabilities that are available to registered devices:  agent-based hardware and software inventory, distribution of software uploaded packages, and patching for Windows OS and third-party apps for both macOS and Windows platforms.

Ÿ KACE Cloud Companion Edition

KACE Cloud now offers a Companion Edition subscription specifically for registered devices. This supports customers who wish to use alongside the existing device management products, such as Microsoft Intune or VMware Workspace One. This special subscription is competitively priced. It enables you to manage the registered devices with other products side-by-side and provides Patching, Software Distribution, and detailed Inventory for those devices.

Further, the Companion Edition subscription can be purchased alongside existing KACE Cloud subscriptions that provide modern device management. Thus, enabling lower-priced subscriptions for devices, such as those running Microsoft Windows Server, which do not need full MDM management capabilities.

The minimum purchase requirement is 100 device licenses.  KACE Cloud will always allocate the least-cost available license to a device and automatically reallocate as new licenses are purchased.
