Managed Software

Managed Software CenterDid you know we now offer a managed software solution to our Precursor Support Plan clients. In many organizations Standard users are locked down and cannot install software on their device without the assist of an Administrator. This is intended to protect them from acquiring various malware and incompatible products and updates which can compromise their device and its productivity and in worst case scenarios affect their network and surrounding devices. But at Precursor we know that this can also lead to user frustration and diminishing productivity.

Managed Software Center protects your network yet empowers your employees by allowing them to acquire vetted Apple and 3'rd party software and apply approved updates without the requirement to be an admin user. Precursor's Managed Software Center is based on the Munki project pioneered at Disney Animation Studios. We have customized the Precursor version to the needs of our Precursor Support Plan customers.

Kerio Connect 9

Kerio ConnectKerio has released Kerio Connect 9 - the collaboration server that handles shared mail, contacts, calendars, and messaging. The new version provides the web based Kerio Connect Client with a complete design refresh and includes significant interaction design improvements like making the Forward and Print buttons for mail messages at the top level. At the backend, I.T. monkeys like myself appreciate that the architecture is now fully 64-bit, IPv6 compatible, and can now be upgraded via the admin web client. Precursor clients who are using Kerio Connect will have their servers upgraded at no cost under the Kerio maintenance plan. We will be scheduling these upgrades during December and do not expect them to cause any downtime.
