IT management specialist Spiceworks has updated its free IT Desktop management offering.
The company said that the 17th version of the management tool would offer enhanced support options as well as improved monitoring and scanning tools.
Among the updates to IT Desktop are an improved SQL monitoring component that will allow administrators to view SQL traffic and data in real time. The update also improves network mapping and scanning.
Additionally, the update will improve support features, including the addition of support for SSL encryption and expansion of the tool to 10 different languages.
Spiceworks said that the new additions were implemented largely as a result of increased take-up of the IT Desktop tool. The company estimated that the tool in now being run by some 830,000 users worldwide.
"These larger organisations have asked us for more sophisticated IT management capabilities typically found only in products that cost thousands of dollars and take days or weeks to implement," said Spiceworks co-founder and chief executive Scot Abel.
"Today we’re delivering several of their most popular feature requests and look forward to adding more in the coming months."
