The control you need to manage, support and secure desktops
BMC FootPrints Desktop Management
For cost-effective IT support within a distributed environment, you need total control of your users’ desktops, whether they’re Windows®, MacOS®, Linux® or VMware® workstations – all managed from a central location.
With BMC FootPrints® Desktop Management software you’ll be able to discover and maintain a comprehensive hardware and software inventory of your users’ desktops, ensuring that they have the latest OS and application patches and, remotely and securely, carry out routine desktop-management tasks and troubleshoot IT issues.
With FootPrints Desktop Management you can do all of this from a central location over a LAN or the Internet without the need for a VPN. No more costly travel and no more time-consuming manual audits and updates.
Three products. One solution.
FootPrints Desktop Management combines three industry-leading products into a single, unified solution for seamless control of your computing devices: BMC FootPrints® Inventory Manager, BMC FootPrints® Remote Manager and BMC FootPrints® Patch Manager.
The freedom to simply…discover your IT assets
FootPrints Desktop Management is the ultimate in IT asset intelligence. You can automatically discover the hardware and software configurations of all your devices to maintain a comprehensive asset inventory. You’ll also be able to track purchased and installed software licenses to avoid license-underutilization costs and to ensure you’re compliant.
Remote, secure access to your users’ desktops
FootPrints Desktop Management makes troubleshooting and fixing IT and computing issues simple. With remote and secure access to your users’ desktops, FootPrints Desktop Management gives you incredible levels of control. Even outside regular business hours, when the target system has been shutdown, you can initiate a remote wake-up, view a configuration summary, transfer files, access core systems and processes, and much more.
Mitigate the threats to your applications and operating systems
FootPrints Desktop Management gives you patch management powered by Shavlik® that is simple enough to manage 10 desktops yet robust enough to manage 10,000. It will patch your Microsoft Operating Systems and distribute patches to your Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications.
No more worrying about whether or not you have the latest security updates from your application and OS vendors. FootPrints Desktop Management does it all for you. It automatically scans your managed devices, performs gap-analysis to determine which devices require the latest patches, then downloads and installs the latest updates for you. Patch management has never been easier.
