Kaseya Patch 9.5.0.22 and Future Updates

The July 2019 release of Kaseya patch 9.5.0.22 includes various new features, enhancements, performance improvements and bug fixes. Kaseya has not released a new patch since April ’19, which makes the July ’19 patch even more important.

Important Note: This patch requires .NET version 4.7.2 to be installed on the machines.

Windows 10 Build Upgrades are Inevitable – Use Kaseya/ConnectWise Automate to Deploy

Every product has its own lifecycle, it starts with its release and moves towards maturity with bug fixes and the addition of more features, and then ends when it is no longer supported by the vendor. Similarly, this is currently happening with most windows builds, which are either already unsupported by Microsoft or are going to unsupported by November 2019.

Kaseya Product Release – April ’19

During the most recent Kaseya product release webinar, multiple announcements were made regarding the new interface, upcoming functionality, new product additions to the portfolio, and much more. Below are 4 key items discussed during the Webinar:

New Kaseya User Interface/Experience: UI Modernization, Simplified GUI, Improved Usability and Enhanced Consistency.

Kaseya Software Management Module

Patching is the process of repairing system vulnerabilities discovered within the infrastructure or an enhancement to an existing application with addon features. The number of patches required on a consistent basis can be overwhelming.  Therefore, it is necessary to devise a patch management process to ensure the proper preventive measures are taken against potential threats, and to assist in attaining new features.

Facing a Challenge, Automation within Kaseya is the Key

With constant growth in the IT infrastructure, and with services going in many different directions (in-house assets, data centers, cloud ecosystems, etc.), it is getting very difficult to keep track of changes, version controls, and much more. This is leading to even more difficulty in managing such infrastructure for multiple clients.

Kaseya’s Temporary Agent – Live Connect on Demand

Although this is not a new feature in Kaseya, I feel as though it is one of the most rarely used. Live Connect on Demand installs a temporary agent on a machine which allows Live Connection to that specific machine, up to a maximum of 12 hours. The best part of this being that as the agent session ends, the agent is automatically uninstalled from the machine.

Kaseya Products Release & Improvements
