Elementra Enhances ESET Endpoint Protection Through Kaseya Platform

ESET, the global leader in proactive digital protection with a record of 10 years consecutive VB100 awards for its award-winning ESET NOD32® technology, today announced the newest version of the Elementra Endpoint Protection module. The new module offers  greater administrative visibility, notification and security from within the Kaseya platform.

The Endpoint Protection module will allow managed service providers (MSPs) and IT administrators using Kaseya to view their ESET deployments across all client networks, gain real-time status updates and perform important administrative tasks to ensure maximum security. The dashboards also provide at-a-glance views of ESET version details, connection ages and protection states to quickly identify any devices that require attention. The module enables technicians to save time by sending updates and scan tasks to either individual or group machines.

“Since the Endpoint Protection module installs directly into the Kaseya platform, providers will benefit from secure client and server management on a centralized platform,“ said Ignacio Sbampato, ESET Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “This integration improves the core functionality of the software and retains the ease of use, light footprint and strong protection ESET products are known for.“

The major new features of Endpoint Protection 1.1 include:

  • Alerts: Kaseya Alerts send automatically when ESET endpoints change from a state of Maximum Protection. These alerts allow technicians to monitor and ammend endpoint state changes from within Kaseya.
  • Improved Server Management: The ESET Remote Administrator (ERA) server management has been improved to provide more information and functionality. This centers IT technicians on the policies, license keys, licenses and endpoint plug-ins each ERA supports.

“The size and complexity of the development of version 1.1 required a significantly deeper integration with both Kaseya and ESET security products,“ said Duanne O’Brien, VP Engineering, Elementra. “The assistance provided by both of these business partners meant we could focus on the core functionality while tapping into expertise where and when needed, resulting in a more reliable and integrated product for our customers.“

“The combination of the Kaseya IT service management framework and the Elementra ESET solution represents an additional endpoint security opportunity for IT professionals,” said Jim Alves, EVP OEM & Strategic Initiatives of Kaseya.

The Elementra ESET plug-in for Kaseya was designed to meet the growing demand for seamless centralized service management.

Elementra first announced the ESET integration module for Kaseya in December of 2012. The Endpoint Protection 1.1 module can be downloaded and licenses purchased via the Elementra website - www.elementra.com
