With so many people now working from home, the ability to manage your customers’ PCs from wherever is vital.

Despite all the chatter about “getting back to the office,” literally millions of Americans still work from their living rooms, kitchens and other home spaces.

A survey by management consultants McKinsey & Co., conducted this past spring, found nearly 6 in 10 American workers (58%) can do their job from home at least 1 day a week. And nearly 1 in 3 Americans (35%) can work from home all the time.

In part, that’s why Intel has joined forces with Kaseya Ltd. Together, these two companies are providing a new way for you and your customers to get started with Intel Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel EMA).

Remote and secure

If you’re unfamiliar with Intel EMA, it’s software that gives you the ability to remotely and securely manage devices with Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) beyond your customer’s firewall via the cloud on known Wi-Fi networks.

As for Kaseya, it offers a software product, Kaseya VSA, that provides all-in-one endpoint management, automation and protection. Kaseya recently announced that VSA can now remotely discover and manage an endpoint enabled with the Intel vPro platform. This integration empowers VSA users to centralize their IT management from a single dashboard.

More specifically, VSA users can now leverage Intel vPro capabilities that include PowerControl, AlarmClock, Remote Secure Erase and configuration information. Among other things, this means you can turn on a vPro-enabled PC, patch it, and then turn the system off again—all from wherever you normally work.

That’s pretty handy. As Kaseya points out, nearly half the PCs currently managed by MSPs are already enabled with Intel vPro.
