NetSupport DNA Software Pack 2 - 10 - 99 Product Details
NetSupport DNA - Complete Asset Management... Anywhere
NetSupport DNA is a complete modular solution that delivers Hardware and Software inventory and License Management. It features detailed and fully customisable Alerting, Application and Internet Metering / Usage Control and both push and pull Software Distribution over a LAN or WAN. NetSupport DNA now also provides an integrated communication gateway allowing secure interaction with your assets, anywhere, over the internet without the need for a VPN or changes to your existing network or firewall configuration.
With a new Energy Monitoring component helping to highlight areas of potential energy wastage across an organisation’s computers, full AD integration, optional ITIL-based ServiceDesk and market leading Remote Control, there has never been a better time to see how NetSupport DNA can save you money and time.
IT assets account for the largest proportion of the overall IT spend, therefore, ensuring they are properly managed and maintained becomes one of the highest priority corporate goals for any organisation where TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is high on the agenda.
Without a comprehensive management program in place, IT assets can cost far more than necessary through waste and redundancy (direct costs) and overly complex management and maintenance (indirect costs). By implementing an effective IT asset management program, companies can view every asset in their enterprise, allowing them to control and manage IT assets, eliminate waste and redundancy, and comply with ever-tightening government compliance regulations.
The annual cost of supporting this IT infrastructure can often result in costs spiraling out of control, where the initial purchase price of IT assets pales into insignificance. Understanding leasing arrangements and undertaking proactive asset management ensures compliance with software license agreements and makes budget forecasting more accurate. Knowing how many of your users are using a specific application at any given time will allow for both effective trimming of software budgets and a realistic prediction of future software investment.
Information is key. Without this, decisions on upgrades and the roll-out of new technology will not be taken from an entirely informed position. From a cost-saving standpoint, knowing the inventory of IT assets is critical when deciding whether to purchase more assets, redistribute current assets, or retire them completely - along with their costly maintenance contracts and renewal fees.
Recognising that organisations have differing requirements, NetSupport DNA is available in a modular format, allowing you to pick and choose only those features that best meet the current needs of your organisation.

With NetSupport DNA You Get The Full Picture
NetSupport DNA integrates with Active Directory enabling you to configure the PC’s and Users within the DNA Console to mirror their relative position within the Active Directory Container structure. Changes made within the AD structure are automatically reflected within DNA. User Information can also be retrieved from Active Directory.
The IT Asset Management function is the primary point of accountability for the life-cycle management of information technology assets throughout the organization. Included in this responsibility are development and maintenance of policies, standards, processes, systems and measurements that enable the organization to manage the IT Asset Portfolio with respect to risk, cost, control, compliance and business performance objectives as established by the business.
IT Asset Management is an integrated approach that works with all departments that are involved in the procurement, deployment, management and reporting of IT assets.
ITAM business practices and NetSupport DNA have a common set of goals:
Hardware and Software Inventory - Asset Management
A wealth of information for specific PCs is provided ranging from CPU and BIOS types to memory, memory slots used and those available for future expansion. Information is presented either for a specific PC or for departments summarised by category, such as by Operating System, CPU, Video Card or Memory.

Software Asset Management and Inventory
Featuring a detailed summary of all installed programs and applications detected on each PC, NetSupport DNA displays this information for either a selected PC, a department or custom group. Full support for recording, tracking and the management of software licences and maintenance contracts is included.
Recognising that often there are many different versions of a common application in use, DNA provides the ability to create customised Application Groups, where all such versions are grouped together for more effective reporting.
Alerting & Reporting
System and PC Alerting
Identify any changes within the data gathered by NetSupport DNA across the overall enterprise, including alerts for:
For most organisations the efficient use of energy delivers two key operational requirements: - cost reductions and improved environmental responsibility. The two elements combined can be considered as "Green IT" - everyone is talking about reducing CO2 emissions and in the current economic climate, reducing energy bills is an equally appealing target. Industry analysts show that IT energy costs are often one of the highest on the company’s IT budget and one that is most overlooked for efficiency management.
NetSupport DNA offers an Application Metering component which reports all applications used on each Windows PC, detailing the time the application was both started and finished and the actual time it was active and in use. Additionally, when the data is viewed at "department" level, summaries by frequency of use or by duration are shown.
Application usage can also be restricted by time of day, for all or selected users or departments . Application control can be used to ensure usage of a selected application does not exceed current license levels and can be used as a security measure to control where key applications can be run and at what times of day.
Application Metering enables the business to perform the following critical functions:
Software Distribution over Local and Wide Area networks
NetSupport DNA provides a multi-delivery option for Software Distribution.
DNA can process the software it distributes to target machines in two ways: firstly, an operator can apply parameters to a collection of files or folders which can then be actioned on delivery; or secondly they can script and record the user prompts that will appear during an installation, which bypasses the need for operator intervention.
Once created, the application package can be automatically "Pushed" to the target PCs for deployment or alternatively "Published" centrally on the DNA server. Once published, a user can check to see which applications are available for their PC, based on their departmental membership and install these on demand.
However, when initiating large scale deployments, the need to minimise network traffic congestion becomes a priority. In this case, NetSupport DNA allows a Client PC, ideally local to the target machines, to be nominated as a "Distribution Warehouse". When the package is deployed, rather than distributing the package individually to each PC, it delivers the package directly to the "Warehouse" Client which then takes over and distributes it to the target PCs on its local LAN segment.
Remote Control: Watch, Share and Control Remote Systems, manage real time problem resolution.
To ensure that critical IT infrastructure is available when needed most, NetSupport DNA offers 2 types of PC Remote Control providing differing levels of remote user support.
User Details: Locate and Manage your Users
DNA also provides the mechanism to create Dynamic groups, these are added to the main Company Tree view and can contain PCs from any number of departments. A typical group might be "all PCs with Windows XP and more than 256Mb of Ram".
Other supporting Tools include Connection Statistics, Find User, Chat, Message and a powerful Data Query Tool. DNA also keeps a history of changes to the data entered in User Data. Changes to Custom User Details are recorded including the following fields: Employee Number, Location, Asset Tag and Owner.
NetSupport DNA Mobile Console
Manage your IT assets on the move with the NetSupport DNA Mobile Console
Compatible with Android phones and tablets, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, the Mobile Console connects with your central DNA Inventory giving you access to accurate, up-to-the-minute asset data wherever you are.
