Updated Action1 RMM Enhances Remote Safety and Enterprise

Enterprise Networking Mag | Friday, June 11, 2021

Organizations can reduce the safety risks associated with shadow IT and unpatched drivers and minimize business disruption during patch deployment across their workforce and remotely.

FREMONT, CA: Action1 Corporation, cloud-based remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution, releases a new RMM platform version. The updated Action1 RMM allows MSPs and internal IT departments to minimize the risk of remote endpoints exploiting unauthorized applications or unpatched driver and firmware vulnerabilities. Additionally, enhanced patch management capabilities ensure business process continuity while reducing IT workload. The new version also includes 250+ enhancements, including user experience and reliability enhancements.

New features in Action1 RMM organizations to:

 Mitigate IT-shadow risks: Organizations can remotely detect and remove unauthorized applications installed on corporate devices, even if they were installed in the user profile before employees misuse or hackers exploit them. This allows IT administrators to switch to Action1 RMM-supported and updated machine-wide installations.

Secure Drivers and Firmware: IT teams can also ensure remote drivers and firmware are patched promptly and reliably, further reducing the risk of successful cyberattacks.

Minimize breakdowns during patch deployment: Users logged on when patches are deployed to their device can postpone rebooting (up to the maximum time set by the IT administrator) to complete their current tasks smoothly. If no user is logged on during patch deployment, the machine reboots automatically.

Automate ̄remote Windows feature updates: IT teams can roll Windows updates to all endpoints automatically and securely, like upgrading to Windows 10 20H2.

“Remote work poses a range of security risks, from employee negligence to hackers breaching remote computers,” says Mike Walters, President of Action1 Corporation. “This modern business reality is forcing IT teams and MSPs to rethink their approach to endpoint management and to search for cloud-based RMM solutions that enable them to monitor and manage both their remote and in-office endpoints. The new release of Action1 RMM will help them address these challenges effectively.”
