Empower aggregates data from Shavlik Protect, Active
Directory and other systems — both on and off the network — using its sentinels
and agents. This gives IT departments instant access to significantly more
information relating to different systems than was previously available. Using Empower’s
data, administrators can determine any problems an endpoint might have — from
anywhere with an Internet connection. Empower also allows users to see more
about their environment and know more about the system before they make critical
decisions, uniting operational efficiency and security.
“We are 90 percent Windows today
and the Mac population is growing,” said Ben Dadson, IT manager at University

get the benefits our Windows users get. We love the ability to tell the
Protect agent to go to the vendor if it cannot see the console. I have
been evaluating Empower because of this ability with the Mac OS X.”
