Desktop Automation Tools for Infrastructure and Compliance

Empowering IT Resource Managers through automation to improve efficiency while reducing risk across IT resources.

Empowering IT Resource Management Automation

The rapid growth of digital business, cloud, and hybrid IT has made the need for automated desktop configuration management as urgent as ever. Organizations are looking for ways to control and monitor their large fleets of desktops, laptops, and kiosks in a way that promotes productivity and reduces risk.

As IT resource fleets expand, organizations must accommodate the needs of a variety of employee roles, manage different operating systems, and eliminate new security threats. Chef Desktop is designed to not only automate configuration management for your heterogeneous IT resource fleet, but also use automation to ensure assets in your fleet are always compliant with necessary security and compliance protocols.

Improve Efficiency While Reducing Risk Across IT Resources

Chef Desktop allows IT resource managers to automate the deployment, management, and secure maintenance of any large fleet of IT resources – such as laptops, desktops, and kiosk workstations – from a centralized location. Chef Desktop applies lessons learned from agile and DevOps practices to IT resource management, enabling new levels of efficiency, scale, and risk management. Instead of point-and-click, manual configuration, desired state is defined in code, and can be reliably and repeatedly applied to the fleet. Best of all, Chef Desktop comes with the code already written, with curated content to audit and harden popular laptop and desktop operating systems. This approach helps IT resource managers gain value immediately while maintaining ultimate flexibility to meet enterprise-specific needs. With Chef Desktop, organizations can gain control over IT resources, ease the management burden, and ensure compliance to minimize risk.
