Kaseya Product Roadmap
November 2015 - R9.2
- Based on customer feedback, Kaseya is re-introducing support for RDP as an additional option for remote control. Customers now have the choice of initiating remote control sessions using RDP, Kaseya Remote Control or K-VNC to match their business processes.
Additional Windows 10 Support
Basic support for Windows 10 in the Kaseya Agent was introduced in R9.1 and support for Software Deployment (KSDU) and Backup (KBU) was added in patch 18.104.22.168.
R9.2 will incorporate Windows 10 support for additional modules including KAV, KES, KAM, KSBR. We will also be releasing these updated modules as patches for the current R9.1 release as they are completed.
Agent Procedure Approval Processes
Agent Procedure Approvals & Signing - Customers will now have the ability to enable/disable this functionality so they have greater control over the process they use for deploying agent procedures in their environments to match their business operation needs. Kaseya has also released this as a patch to the current GA release (R9.1) and we will be releasing patches for early versions (R8 and R9) in October.
A number of changes are being made to Discovery in R9.2 to improve accuracy, performance and simplify configuration. The highlights are:
Automatic Network Harvesting - Customers have reported that the current discovery method utilizing the automatic network harvesting feature limited their control of discovery which resulted in confusion and “clutter” (i.e. unnamed networks, etc…). We’ve redesigned the approach to discovery providing customers with three methods as follows:
- LanWatch Approach - Simply pick an agent and create a network for the subnet it occupies
- Add a Network - Define an IP range to be scanned/discovered scanned
- Import a Network - Import a set of networks which can be configured
Accuracy - Customers have reported that the accuracy of network scanning needs to be improved. We have upgraded and enhanced our underlying scanning engine to greatly improve the accuracy and reliability of network scanning.
Discovery to Network Monitoring - Customers will now have a configuration option to control which discovered networks will be exposed to the Network Monitoring Module. This enables customers to use discovery to automated agent deployment without requiring that the network be part of their monitoring environment.
Kaseya Network Monitoring (KNM)
Changes to Discovery (accuracy and the ability to control which discovered networks are exposed to KNM) will enhance the usability and effectiveness of monitoring.
KNM has been expanded from a 32-bit to 64-bit architecture to greatly improve scalability and stability
Kaseya Software Deployment and Update (KSDU)
- KSDU had utilized the Ninite engine for software updates as part of an OEM relationship. Ninite has opted to move to a direct sales model, but continues to closely partner with Kaseya. Existing Kaseya customers who renewed their subscription prior to May 31st, 2015 can continue to add capacity until May 31st, 2016.
For new customers or existing customers who did not renew, R9.2 allows those who purchase Ninite Pro directly from Ninite (https://ninite.com/pro) to upload their Ninite information into the Kaseya VSA server, and Kaseya will will utilize their specific Ninite engine while providing additional management capabilities including flexible scheduling, policy management, and custom packages through the Kaseya VSA. This functionality will also be patched back to R9.1.
- Kaseya has enhanced the underlying Kserver to provide significantly improved performance and scalability under high load
- Refreshed Executive Report using a modern visual design and enhanced graphics.
- Local Timezone enhancements have been made so customers can express time as a function of their specific location as opposed to the location of the physical server
March 2016 - R9.3
Re-imaged LiveConnect & QuickView (Project Hydra)
Kaseya will provide a new way to interact with machines through a multi-session application which puts critical functions such as remote control, file manager, event viewer, registry editor, command/powershell and more into a single view without requiring browser plug-ins.
New Architecture for Security Modules
Kaseya is implementing a new architecture for our security modules (KAV, KAM & KES) while maintaining the existing level of functionality that customers require. These changes will result in tighter integration with policy and agent procedures while providing more robust security lifecycle management (install, uninstall, activate, upgrades/updates, configuration).
New, Modern Visual Design
R9.3 brings a modern visual design to the VSA’s GUI which will simplify the experience for technicians, reduce the learning curve and enable across a wider range of devices and browsers.
More to come based on your feedback! Stay tuned….
