Kace is a patch and software management tool. It is necessary to keep SFCC devices up to date to prevent security incidents.
Q: Will this work when I am remote?
A: Yes. Kace will updated devices while they are on and off campus.
Q: Will I still need to reboot my device?
A: Yes. Kace will periodically ask to reboot your computer due to patching when necessary. You can snooze the reboot for 30 minutes 10 times in order to continue your work.
Q: Do I need to do anything?
A: Yes. Reboot your computer when asked, that is all. Kace manages everything else.
Q: Do I need to “Check for Windows updates?”
A: No. While we have left the button enabled so you can check for updates, you no longer need to check. Kace will reliably push updates when available.
Q: What else does Kace do?
A: Kace manages the following:
- Software and Windows/MacOS Patching
- Software deployment
- Device and Software Inventory
- Device driver updates
- Apple devices and software.
