JetPatch Agent Manager encapsulates any agent with a vendor-neutral, common delivery and control framework. This enables central management and automation of all agent life cycle aspects in a just a few clicks: deploy, monitor, resource consumption control, remediate, re-config, start/stop, diagnose, view files, upgrade, rollback, remove, etc. The framework is open to any agents and extensible to cover more life cycle events as needed (e.g. pre-post install, network and firewall checks, etc.).
This approach allows for various agent services based on the application, endpoint, and infrastructure properties.
EMC and Accenture have augmented generic configuration management tools such as Puppet and SCCM with JetPatch Agent Manager to provide complete automation and control over agents.
