O&O Software has announced a major update for Syspectr, its remote PC monitoring and management service.
A new email notification system makes it much easier to define which events you’d like to track. A panel lists the event categories (“Security”, “Updates”, “Software”, more), and you can choose whether you’d like to be informed of problems, warnings or “information” alerts with a click.
Problems can now automatically be marked as resolved, a major time-saver. If a user uninstalls their antivirus software, say, this will raise a security alert, but if they reinstall it then the problem will be marked as resolved. The admin is informed via email (assuming they’ve chosen that option, anyway), but otherwise they’re now able to focus on outstanding issues.
Elsewhere, the notification emails have been tweaked to make them clearer. Email notification preferences may be set per user, for extra flexibility. And notifications are also logged in Syspectr’s history, helpful if you need to analyze them later.
As previously, the free Syspectr build limits you to 5 notifications a day. That’s enough to see how the system works, though, and if you need more then the paid edition is priced from 1 Euro/ $1.38 per PC, per month.
