IT systems management software vendor Kaseya has launched two new products to help IT professionals manage and view their networks.

The Kaseya Directory Services product lets customers automate the process of syncing Microsoft Active Directory infrastructure to be visible from within the Kaseya IT Automation Framework while maintaining uniform access and data privileges.

Kaseya Directory Services includes: Active Directory integration; password reset and disable account functionality; unified login access and a bundled set of alerts and notifications.

The new Kaseya Policy Management solution streamlines setting, creating and remotely applying IT policies to groups across a distributed organization by group or machine. It lets administrators define, publish and manage service level agreements in one location. It also allows for automated policy assignment for new machines.

Through its dashboard, users can see the overall status of policies in the system, highlighting metrics like the number of machines in or out of compliance.

"Managing multiple security models across the enterprise is a constant challenge for IT organizations until now," Gerald Beaulieu, director of product marketing for Kaseya, said in a statement. 

"The Kaseya Directory Services module can now link customers’ existing organizational investment in Active Directory into their Kaseya environment, ensuring security access and privileges are uniform within Kaseya. With Kaseya Policy Management module, IT managers can now ensure uniformity of settings applied to the machines under their management and quickly identify machines not adhering to the defined policy," he said.

Both the the Kaseya Directory Services and Kaseya Policy Management modules are immediately available for new and existing Kaseya customers and can be bought as a subscription or as a perpetual license.
