A Strong KACE for Hardware Management

Arthur Cole

A start-up called KACE has come out with an innovative approach to hardware management, a single appliance that supports even the most complicated heterogeneous environment.


The KBOX Systems Management Appliance 1200 uses an integrated patch, state and image management system that supports Windows, Solaris, OS X, as well as RHEL, SuSE and Ubuntu Linux.


The system relies on Lumension Security's PatchLink patching system, as well as the company's own Kimage system that enables managers to edit, define and deploy target images throughout a Web-based user interface. This allows you to synchronize images on a target machine on an ongoing basis, maintaining parity even under demanding network conditions.


The KBOX runs on the FreeBSD operating system on a dual-Xeon chipset. It can also operate as part of a Network Access Control (NAC) system, matching endpoint compliance with patch management policies. KACE has already partnered up with Cisco.
