Just launched: Parallels Mac Management 6 for Microsoft SCCM

Recently, Parallels® unveiled Parallels Mac Management 6 for Microsoft SCCM, which extends Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) functionality and enables IT managers to use one pane of glass to manage both PC and Mac® computers with ease, increased efficiency, and higher productivity.

The feedback from our Version 6 beta testers had been fantastic and we look forward to all the customers taking advantage of the new Parallels Mac Management 6 features. The complete list of Parallels Mac Management 6 new features and fixes can be found here.

Last year, when we announced Version 5, we wrote in a blog post:

“How do you make the most advanced Mac management plug-in for Microsoft SCCM better? How about doing something impossible, again, and making yet another Apple Mac management technology available to SCCM administrators!”. Guess what, we have done it again!

Remote Wipe and Lock

Parallels Mac Management 6 adds ability to Wipe or Lock a Mac remotely through SCCM. We all have heard stories about CEOs leaving their Macs on the planes or at airports. This is a security nightmare for the IT, especially if the data on a Mac is not protected with FileVault 2. The new Wipe and Lock capability allows to wipe or lock a Mac remotely and gives the IT a piece of mind.

Software Metering

In this release, we have continued to deepen integration with various SCCM features: We have added support for the Software Metering of applications that Mac users run on their Macs. It allows the IT to monitor and collect software usage data from Mac clients and make business decisions such as:

  • ·         How many licenses of a particular software program do you have to purchase when you renew your license agreement with the software vendor?
  • ·         Are users still running a particular software program?
  • ·         What times of day is a software program most frequently used

New macOS Image Deployment Capabilities. 

We are seeing significant growth of use of the macOS image deployment functionality of Parallels Mac Management by our customers and continue to invest development resources into this feature. Parallels Mac Management v6 adds new task sequence steps as well as usability enhancements.

Configuration Profile Improvements

Of course, we couldn’t have left the core of the Mac management functionality, macOS configuration profiles, without adding some improvements to them.
