Lubos Parobek, Dell KACE product vice president, said in a statement that the K1000 is designed to help organizations of all sizes cope with some of the IT landscape's most pressing issues.

"Today's organizations face a wide range of IT challenges including endpoint security, regulatory compliance, server management and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), which can make it difficult for resource-strapped IT teams to provide the services and responsiveness that their businesses are demanding," he said.

To that end, Dell said the K1000 offers important simplifications like one-click security agent updating, patch optimization and a new multi-object reporting wizard, designed to provide quick, robust insight into IT infrastructure performance.

The company also added support for a host of new operating systems, including Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Ubuntu, SUSE Linux Enterprise and OS X Mountain Lion, with the aim of improving support for increasingly diverse OS environments.

Dell said that the KACE K1000 will be available for sale in early November, for a starting price of $8,900.

KACE Networks was acquired by Dell in 2010 for an undisclosed amount, with the aim of helping the Texas-based OEM appeal to small and midsize businesses. Dell has since released several products under the KACE brand as part of its shift toward becoming a provider of business products and services.
