CurrentWare version 5.5.2 is here! Along with it comes a list of exciting new features and performance upgrades for all of the products in the CurrentWare suite. If you’d like the short-hand summary of the new features, you can always find the latest updates in the release notes.
We put time into developing these new features based off of ongoing feedback and requests from our customers. If you have features you’d like to see in a future release, get in touch with us!
If you’ve purchased the CurrentWare suite you’re already familiar with enPowerManager’s remote power management features. In this update we’re taking the first steps towards making enPowerManager a powerful device management product.
Much like BrowseReporter and AccessPatrol, enPowerManager now has its very own reports. The new reports make auditing Windows event logs for logon, logoff, startup, shutdown, and sleep events as easy as pressing a few buttons in the CurrentWare console.
Managing remote workers is a unique challenge and you need a way to make data-informed decisions. Fortunately, all of CurrentWare’s products are compatible with remote workers.
We’ve listened to your feedback and have taken our remote workforce management capabilities a step further. BrowseReporter’s reports have been upgraded to allow you to compare employee activity based on whether they were working in-office or remotely.
Here’s how it works:
Version 5.5.2 will add the productivity by location feature to the Sites Visited, Employee Productivity, Top Domain & Top Categories by Browsing Time reports.
Version 5.5.2 brings enhancements to these three existing AccessPatrol features:
To make locking down devices more convenient we’ve also added a Block all except Wifi option in AccessPatrol. If you want to provide your users with a wifi-only device you can select this option and AccessPatrol will do it all for you.
This saves you the time and effort of manually blocking portable storage devices, optical media, bluetooth, and the other devices that AccessPatrol can control when you want to assign a wifi-only policy to your managed users.
In addition to the features we’ve highlighted today, we’ve implemented several usability and efficiency upgrades. These tweaks will further improve the ease-of-use and performance of your CurrentWare products when you upgrade to version 5.5.2.
Other updates coming in version 5.5.2:
If you own version 5.5.0 or 5.5.1 you existing license keys will work for the new version.
If you do not own version 5.5.0 or 5.5.1 you will need to request a new license key to upgrade to version 5.5.2.
As always, you can see the latest release notes on the CurrentWare knowledge base. We’re always hard at work behind the scenes to provide our customers with the features they need to manage their workforce.
