Automox Expands Functionality and Reach with Remote Control and New Global Partnership

Product and distribution momentum set to fuel international growth

Boulder, Colo, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Automox®, the cloud-native IT operations provider, today announced general availability of its remote control feature, offering global IT teams advanced troubleshooting capabilities from a single cloud-native console.

Remote control is a powerful tool for IT teams everywhere. IT administrators often face a mountain of device-related issues daily, ranging from email account errors, password resets, and devices that won’t update, to processes that drain device resources. Without the ability to perform an in-depth investigation directly on the device, providing a fix generally requires significant time from IT teams and multiple tools.

With remote control, IT admins can gain immediate access to end-user devices to troubleshoot issues directly. The functionality was developed in-house by Automox’s product team to help IT teams quickly address a wide array of common endpoint issues.

“While our customers usually just set up Automox and let it run, we found that many of our customers occasionally need more hands-on capability with their endpoints to help with troubleshooting or user assistance.  It was a straightforward and natural step to add in remote control capabilities,” said Corey Bodzin, Senior Vice President of Product.  “Our customers can now use a single intuitive console to manage and troubleshoot all of their endpoints.”

Automox’s in-console remote control gives IT operations teams two major advantages:

  • Teams can quickly and easily access and troubleshoot remote devices for employees anywhere in the world to provide quick fixes to update issues, configuration problems, and more.
  • Teams can consolidate their toolset for simplicity and cost savings by combining patching, configuration, and troubleshooting into a single easy-to-use platform.

On the heels of its remote control release, Automox also announced further momentum into international markets with its inclusion in Orchestra, an IT channel sales distribution partnership led by QBS Software and global investor Insight Partners. Automox is one of five hypergrowth software companies to be included in the international launch, which focuses its preliminary distribution in the UK and Germany.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Automox, along with some of our fast-growing peers in the software industry, to continue to build on our international community of customers,” said Stefan Schweizer, Vice President of International Sales. “With new added functionality in our platform, our positioning is better than ever to empower fast and easy IT operations anywhere in the world.”

European Union scales-up assistance to Pakistan by PKR 6.7 billion to help people affected by floods

Islamabad, The European Union has announced to substantially scale-up its assistance to the flood affected people in Pakistan. During a meeting with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the European Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič, announced PKR 6.7 billion (€30 million) in humanitarian aid for Pakistan. The Commissioner is visiting Pakistan this week to get a first-hand impression of the impact of the catastrophic floods and of the ongoing relief efforts.

This new funding aims to address the most urgent needs such as basic shelters, clean drinking water and sanitation, food and nutrition as well as medical services. The actions funded by the European Union will ensure that women, children and other vulnerable people are protected from further harm and that children have again access to education as quickly as possible. Cash assistance will enable people cover their basic needs and to rebuild their homes and livelihoods. Given the scale of the crisis, the psychological impact on affected people will also be taking into account.

Commissioner Lenarčič said: “People in Pakistan are suffering the devastating consequences of an unprecedented flooding emergency. Our thoughts are with those who lost family members, friends and their own homes. What is more, many livelihoods have been lost. With this new funding, the EU reaffirms its continued support to Pakistan and stands by the most vulnerable to help them fulfil basic needs. Once again, however, nature reminded us of the impact of global warming. Mainstreaming disaster preparedness and prevention in EU funded projects will therefore remain our top priority within the provision of humanitarian assistance.”

Upon arrival in Pakistan, Commissioner Lenarcic travelled to Khipro in Sindh province to understand the scale of the disaster, to speak to affected communities and to see the European assistance that is already provided on the ground. He visited a water purification plant run by a Danish civil protection team and a humanitarian project implemented by an EU-funded international non-governmental organization.

Together as “Team Europe”, the European Union and its member states have already committed €93 mio to date. With the additional funds announced today, this reaches a total of €123 mio. In addition, European civil protection agencies have provided in-kind donations of tents, blankets, medical equipment as well as experts and technicians.

The European Commission’s Copernicus satellite service collects real time data and provides high resolution maps to support the assessment of the situation in the most affected areas. The EU’s Global Flood Monitoring (GFM) system can help teams working on the ground and the national and provincial authorities to monitor the situation and direct resources accordingly.

Pakistan can learn from Chinese expertise in poverty alleviation and health sector: President Alvi

President Alvi expressed his confidence that the partnership between Pakistan and China will continue to flourish in every sector for the benefit of both parties during his speech at a roundtable conference on the CPEC and Pakistan as a Paradise for Investment in Islamabad. The CPEC, he continued, is a thorough and substantial foundation for collaboration between the two nations. He said that in addition to the physical infrastructure that would be built to increase connection, the proposal also included energy initiatives and Special Economic Zones (SEZs). According to President Alvi, Pakistan may also benefit from what China has learned about reducing poverty and enhancing the health care system. The president also stated that the Central Asian States are also very interested in the CPEC project as Gwadar Port will give them access to international markets.

President Dr. Arif Alvi has expressed the confidence that the partnership between Pakistan and China will continue to flourish in every sector for the mutual benefit.

Addressing a Roundtable Conference on ‘CPEC and Pakistan Paradise for Investment’ in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said both the countries enjoy good partnership in the field of IT.

He said relationship between the two countries is very deep and it has been further cemented by the peoples’ friendship.

The President said the CPEC is a comprehensive and substantive framework of cooperation between the two countries. He said the project not only envisaged construction of physical infrastructure to improve connectivity but also energy projects and Special Economic Zones (SEZs). He was confident that Pakistan will soon emerge as a strong country in the comity of nations.

He said Pakistan can also learn from the Chinese experience in poverty alleviation and improving the health sector.

The President said the Central Asian States are also looking at the CPEC project with great interest as Gwadar Port will provide them access to world markets.

President Arif Alvi stressed for giving incentives to attract both domestic and foreign investments in the country. He said incentives should be such which make their products competitive in the world markets.  He said given the importance of Small and Medium enterprises, Pakistan also wants to facilitate and encourage this important sector of the economy.
