SolarWinds N-central 12.2

17 February 2020

New features have been added by SolarWinds to its remote monitoring and management product which is available under licence on-premise or hosted.

N-central 12.2 now includes network topology mapping so that technicians can view and troubleshoot connectivity issues from their desks, saving time and frustration.

Another feature, disk encryption manager, is designed to make disk drives unreadable to unauthorised users if a device is lost or stolen.

Automation manager is a feature that can now talk to and act on VMware environments, making it possible to automate VMware software-related workflows and activities.

Patch manager allows faster response to patches.  SolarWinds says that the separation of patch manager from the main N-central engine better supports the rapid changes typically associated with third-party applications, enabling more timely patching.
