Panorama9 is releasing Mac and Linux agent support to extend its cloud-based IT management platform to control the entire IT environment, regardless of what hardware or operating systems are in use.

The solution gives small and mid-sized enterprise (SME) companies an easy way to track the hardware, software, and security of their users and networks from one place.

Panorama9 offers a comprehensive view for the IT manager, with real-time tracking and alerts on company assets, IT availability, security vulnerabilities, non-compliant systems, and more. With the new Mac OS X and Linux agents, IT managers can now monitor any device, no matter what hardware is deployed or is brought into the network by employees.

“Most IT management systems focus on one particular operating system, but that’s simply not how businesses today operate. Even small organizations will have a mix of operating systems with employees who bring their MacBook Air or other personal computer to the office,” said Allan Thorvaldsen, CEO and co-founder of Panorama9.

“Extending the Panorama9 platform to support Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, means that no matter what hardware a company may have today, or tomorrow, Panorama9 has them covered,” he added.

To add support for Mac OS X or Linux devices, a company simply needs to install the lightweight Panorama9 agent on each computer. The agent will instantly begin collecting information about the machine and report it to the Panorama9 cloud. Any issues will be presented in the Panorama9 dashboard, and can be sent to an IT administrator via email
or text. Panorama9 can also instruct the Mac or Linux device to take correcting actions for automated routine maintenance and troubleshooting.

The new agents support all versions of Mac OS X (true?) and virtually any different flavor of Linux, including Ubuntu, Red Hat, Debian, and CentOS.

Panorama9 is a pay-as-you-go subscription-based service.
