Heath Upton, Director of Engineering at ENGL, comments on this exciting release.
"For over 10 years ENGL has enhanced the Windows deployment experience for ZENworks customers, making Windows deployment easier with every Imaging Toolkit release. We've worked closely with ZENworks engineering and selected customers throughout the ZCM 11.2 BETA and we're excited to bring ZCM 11.2 support to Imaging Toolkit."
"With Imaging Toolkit 7, customers can now choose between ZENworks Linux (ZMG) and WinPE (WIM) based imaging. In both cases, Imaging Toolkit includes enhanced security, identity based menus, customs forms and automated imaging."
"We've enhanced the driver management functionality in Imaging Toolkit that is backed by millions of Windows drivers for both Windows desktop and server OS versions. Imaging Toolkit 7 includes a new driver installer engine that matches drivers to the machines hardware in real time during deployment, ensuring greater compatibility and reduced risk."
