You can manage your Windows PCs (XP SP3 and later) in a live web interface with Ninite Pro. Install the lightweight Ninite Agent on your machines and they instantly appear on the web for simple point-and-click management. It's an easy way to get a real-time interactive view of all your machines.
The new Ninite Pro lets you manage your software in a live web interface. Each machine is a row and each app is a column. You can select an individual cell to update, install, or uninstall an app on a machine. Or select many cells (or whole rows or columns or everything) to perform bulk actions. You can even watch the agents work in real-time.
The agent receives commands and sends back updates over a secure connection to Ninite's servers. This means that a roaming laptop looks and works just like any other machine in the web interface. It also makes it possible to issue install/update/uninstall commands for offline machines and have them be delivered the next time those machines are online.
You can mark some of your machines as cache servers and have other machines route their downloads through them. If the cache server already has a copy of the requested data, it can just deliver it directly without doing another download. This makes updates faster and saves a lot of bandwidth. It's easy to configure and change your cache server settings right in the web interface, no need to plan it all out ahead of time.
By default you can manually control apps in the new Pro interface, but you can also set up auto-update policies to apply updates as soon as they're available. You can also lock apps if you want extra assurance they won't be changed using Ninite Pro, which is great if some machines require a specific point release of Java for example.
You can organize your machines however you like by assigning them one or more tags. If you're an MSP (managed service provider) adding a per-client tag is a great way to focus and report on different clients. Ninite will automatically tag machines with their online/offline status or if they're running Windows server or workstation. It's easy to drill down to just the machines you're interested in.
You can get a high-level view of all or some of your machines on the Overview tab. See your patching status at a glance and even update everything (or go app-by-app) with a single click.
Once you've signed up or have your trial credentials you can download your customized Agent installer. You can deploy the agent via an MSI, using a simple .exe installer with a /silent switch, or using a special network-wide .exe installer that works like Ninite Pro Classic's remote mode. Once the agent is installed you manage everything else right on the web.
We think this new interface is much simpler and more powerful, but Ninite Pro Classic still has its uses. So if you want to integrate with an RMM or other tool, or you're already happy using Ninite in a startup script that's OK. Ninite Pro Classic will still be supported and is included with every Ninite Pro account. Learn more about Ninite Pro Classic.
Ninite Pro scales and customers use it on networks ranging from tens to thousands of machines.
