Action1 Enables Efficient Distribution of Software and Patches While Reducing the Impacts of Cloud Adoption

New software distribution system uses secure peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing technology to apply critical security updates and install apps faster, while minimizing the endpoint-to-cloud traffic.

Key highlights:

– Large software packages are split into smaller chunks, sent to multiple endpoints in parallel, so they share them over LAN and then piece the chunks back together.
– Entirely private to prevent sharing of software outside of organization boundaries.
– No additional subscription fees to use.
– Entirely free for up to 10 endpoints. No functionality limitations, no ads.

“The ever-growing remote workforce forces organizations to adopt new cloud technologies to replace no longer functioning traditional approaches,” said Mike Walters, President of Action1 Corporation. “But cloud adoption hits network performance when huge software packages are transferred to every endpoint. Action1’s approach combines convenience of the cloud and efficiency of on-premise tools. That’s when software and patch management using Cloud actually starts to make sense.”

“Bandwidth is still super expensive here in South Africa,” said Michael Scanlen, former Senior Manager for End User Support at Deloitte. “Bandwidth-friendly technologies would be indispensable to anyone who wants manage software installs and updates from the cloud.”
