WebDT Device Manager
WebDT Device Manager
Streamline Device Control Operations
The WebDT Device Manager (WDM) software features a web browser interface fronting a database
management system which supports (inventory, organize, control, update) a network of DT Research
embedded appliances over the LAN, WAN, or wireless networks.
WebDT Device Manager utilizes “push and pull” technology to interact with remote appliances,
allowing system administrators to inventory hardware, update OS, BIOS, Client Agent, applications and
registry entries, shutdown/ reboot/ wake up devices, update system firmware and software, along
with access to advanced logging and scheduling capabilities.
The WDM software streamlines operations, providing a way to schedule, send, and execute commands
to multiple DT systems at the same time, and also giving the ability to monitor the status and results.
Different levels of IT managers can be assigned specific task access with the account and privilege
management feature, including support for Microsoft Active Directory so that pre-existing access
levels can be imported rather than re-created.
