Parallels brings Macs into System Center fold Featured

By

Parallels Management allows Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager users to take control of their organisations' Macs.

One of the main objections to the wider use of Macs in medium to large organisations has been the inability to manage them through the popular Microsoft System Center.

Parallels Management is a plug-in for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) that allows the management of Macs in addition to Windows-based PCs. It also works with Parallels Desktop for Mac Enterprise Edition for the deployment and management of policy-compliant virtualised Windows systems.

This is the first component of a broader Parallels Management Suite.

"Employees bringing Macs to work or choosing them at work, while great for them, presents real challenges for IT departments as they are faced with supporting a platform that System Center cannot effectively handle on its own. I've seen this time and time again throughout my career - previously in my IT leadership roles at Yahoo! and Access Systems Inc, and even now at Parallels," said Parallels CIO Christopher McLaughlin-Brooks.

"The option of building out Mac-only management is far too expensive; ideally IT leaders need centralised processes, tools, and a single team that can manage everything easily. The Parallels Management solution solves that problem."

Parallels Management costs $30 per Mac per year. Volume discounts are available.
