GFI MAX Remote Management – Dashboard v5.41.3 and Agent v9.4.0 RC

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Dashboard v5.41.3 and Agent v9.4.0 (RC) are being released overnight, with Agent v9.3.1 turning GA, so that they will be available in advance of the working day tomorrow, Thursday 19th December.

This is a routine Service Release focused on minor updates and bug fixes. That being stated, the release does include two great feature enhancements:

  • View the “Hardware” and “Software” tabs from the Asset Tracking section directly from the Monitoring and Management area of the Dashboard, saving you the effort of jumping to the Asset Tracking area to view this information.
  • Show feature status columns for Managed Anti-Virus, System Tray Application and Remote Background Management in the main window, so it’s easy to see which workstations and servers have these features enabled.

Both enhancements were highlighted by customers on the IdeaFactory website, in particular the Asset Tracking request which is the third most popular idea on the list.

We are also updating Patch Management to no longer update TeamViewer software on devices that have the Take Control feature installed, thereby ensuring it is Take Control that determines which version of the TeamViewer software is used on a customer’s device. We plan to update Take Control to run the new TeamViewer v9 instance at the start of the New Year, to ensure compatibility between host and viewer software and to resolve an issue some customers are experiencing in connecting to devices via Take Control after initially installing the v9 update.

With Agent 9.3.1 going on GA, Managed Online Backup customers should be aware that backups of VMware will become chargeable from 1st of January and appear in invoices and usage reports on 31st of January. Those customers using the VMware plugin are strongly advised to update to Agent v9.3.1 as soon as possible to ensure the selection size of (and therefore charges associated with) the VMware plugin reflect the amount of virtual disk used and not the total size of the virtual disk (as it does in Agent v9.2).

Lastly, we’re pleased to say the response and take up so far of our new ServiceDesk offering, launched only last week, has been extremely positive, with over 5% of customers actively trialling the service already. Please check it out if you have not yet done so!
