NetSupport DNA 3 - Helping Count The Cost Of PC Energy Consumption Across Your Enterprise



    MARKHAM, ON, June 26 /CNW/ - Desktop and Asset Management specialists
NetSupport announce the worldwide release of their Enterprise Management
Suite, NetSupport DNA version 3 including as standard a new Energy Monitoring
component.
    PCs and monitors account for 39% of the IT industry's emissions, equal to
a year of CO2 emissions from approximately 43.9 million cars. For most
organisations the efficient use of energy delivers two key operational
requirements: - cost reductions and improved environmental responsibility. The
two elements combined can be considered as "Green IT" - everyone is talking
about reducing CO(2) emissions and in the current economic climate, reducing
energy bills is an equally appealing target.
    "Industry analysts show that IT energy costs are often one of the highest
on the company's IT budget and one that is most overlooked for efficiency
management." says Al Kingsley, Group Managing Director of NetSupport.
"NetSupport DNA already checks to verify the powered-on state of all computers
across an Enterprise and its local monitoring component keeps an accurate
record of each time a computer is powered on, off or hibernates. DNA3 now
provides organisations with a method for calculating an indicative energy
usage figure which when combined with each customer's specific energy rates
highlights the overall cost of identified systems. Department heads or
management can immediately see a high level view of energy usage by computers
across the organisation, see where "out of hours" usage is highest and
identify whether this is a result of diligent staff working late or simply
systems that have been left switched on overnight."
    NetSupport DNA 3 also introduces a new Internet Gateway component
ensuring that all IT assets, even those at remote locations are included and
managed in real time. The Internet Gateway provides secure IP communications
over the internet for managing assets that may ordinarily be 'hidden' on a
remote network or behind firewalls.
    Among a number of other feature enhancements, NetSupport DNA now fully
integrates with Active Directory enabling customers to automatically reflect
all PCs and Users within their DNA Console as a mirror to their Active
Directory structure. Any changed made in AD will automatically apply within
NetSupport DNA.
    The Software Asset management capabilities have been further extended to
provide a detailed summary of both installed programs and installed
applications detected on each PC, providing a simpler way of managing programs
licenses as a suite such as Microsoft Office. To compliment this, DNA also
allows specific file types to be located and recorded on all computers as an
effective way of ensuring business documents are not stored locally and
missing backup routines or that valuable disk space is not being lost to users
music collections. In addition full support is provided for recording,
tracking and the management of software licences and their maintenance
contracts.
    In addition to this and a wealth of additional updates, NetSupport DNA 3
also includes a new and intuitive user experience, with a fresh and flexible
interface, engaging charts and a "download to deployed" timescale of as little
as 30 minutes.
