New Features ZENworks SP4

Simplified virtual appliance deployment

Micro Focus ZENworks 11 SP4 introduces a brand new virtual appliance that simplifies the deployment of ZENworks Primary Servers. Plus, a new appliance web console makes configuring and managing the SUSE Linux Enterprise-based appliance easy. The appliance acts like a black box on your network, providing essential ZENworks services to your users.

Improved reporting

ZENworks 11 SP4 provides an updated release of ZENworks Reporting in a virtual appliance form factor, making deployment a snap. The new version of the underlying reporting engine offers numerous enhancements, including performance improvements, the ability to create custom forms and measures, new chart types, and much more.

Easier management of ZENworks SSL certificates

The new SSL management capabilities allow you to easily back up, restore, move and remint server and certificate authority certificates from the ZENworks Control Center.

Improved agent update

ZENworks 11 SP4 decouples the agent-side system update capabilities from the ZENworks adaptive agent. As a result, agent updates are more reliable and the updater service is self-healing. This update also provides an easy way to reset or repair the agent if needed.

Improved remote management capabilities

ZENworks 11 SP4 provides the latest version of remote management capabilities based on TightVNC, with the security you've come to expect. It also provides the ability to manage devices remotely even if the ZENworks agent service isn't running on the device.

Improved license consumption tracking

ZENworks Asset Management now provides the ability to connect to GroupWise 2014 and Open Enterprise Server to determine license consumption and reconcile consumption against purchase data. This improved tracking capability provides crucial guidance related to fulfilling license compliance.

Selective encryption of USB devices

ZENworks Endpoint Security Management now allows you to selectively encrypt USB devices.

In addition to these valuable features, we also added a number of smaller customer-requested enhancements to this release. Take time today to try out the best version of ZENworks yet!
