Small Plates and JDisc Discovery Enhancements…

network discovery changes

network discovery changesDear JDisc Friends,

small plates can be very tasty. The same is true for JDisc Discovery enhancements. You do not need to add the new big killer feature. Sometimes, smaller and even easy to implement features can add a lot of value to our product.

The feature I am presenting now is an example for such a feature. Starting with build 3355 (being released within the next couple of days), we are going to collect the time stamp for the last Windows Update. Especially test servers and test PCs are often not  well managed and users forget to run the appropriate updates (“it’s just a test server!”). This can lead to security issues in your network.

Therefore we are collecting the Windows Update time and you can easily identify devices not properly updated.


Looking forward to receive your feedback and new ideas!
