1E, a software and services company that improves IT efficiency by identifying and reducing costs and waste in hardware, software, energy and time, today announced that NightWatchman®, its market leading software solution for desktop power management, is now available for early-adopter customers with Mac environments. This release sees 1E strengthening its position in market segments such as education and the creative industries, enabling customers to save more computer power than ever before.
“Managing multiple desktop operating systems and desktop power states are two of the emerging trends we see in enterprise desktop management. Many organizations, particularly those that manage multiple operating systems within the same group, generally gravitate to tools that can manage both platforms,” says Terrence Cosgrove, senior research analyst, Gartner.
Designed to give organizations a centralized view and management of the power usage from their estate of PCs and Macs, NightWatchman empowers them to significantly reduce energy costs without impacting users. NightWatchman is proven to generate significant ROI - typically $36 (£22) per PC per year.
“With eight in 10 businesses now using Macsi and a reported 74 percent of companies planning to expand Mac use , a move into cross-platform support is a clear strategic direction for our business,” says Sumir Karayi, CEO, 1E. “Many organizations today are not able to centrally manage their Mac estate, let alone control and save power on them. NightWatchman will now give them true visibility and control of all PCs and Macs on a single console. NightWatchman offers a highly-accurate customizable power management reporting dashboard which enables IT managers to set key performance metrics across the entire organization.”
NightWatchman is compatible with all Intel-based Mac models including the iMac, Mac mini, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Proiii. NightWatchman supports Mac OS X 10.5.8, 10.6.2 and 10.6.3 operating systems. NightWatchman is the only PC power management software solution you can buy to achieve Common Criteria for IT Security (CC) Assurance.
