First Look: N-able's N-central 9.0 Automates Common Tasks

Scripts Create Policies

We were impressed with the stability of N-central's drag-and-drop environment for creating scripts to automate mundane tasks such as updating software and checking for virus protection. To build a "policy," simply drag one or more script objects from the list (near left). Hundreds of script objects are included with the tool and organized neatly by type. Objects can be used as-is, modified and saved as a new object, or created from scratch. Scripts can even determine whether a user is logged in and, if so, communicate with them in real time.
