We’ve been running a little series recently about the differences between a PC Power Management system that uses agents versus one that is agentless. The Agentless vendor will give you a list of things to show how their agentless solution can provide value, while trying to show that an Agented system has some drawbacks. We hear these “myths” constantly and what better way to help you, the customer, to understand the real differences than to post it publicly.
This page is the placeholder for the entire series. We’ll continue to “bust myths” on this topic as we hear new ones crop up. If you’ve reviewed a PC Power Management solution before, I’m positive you’ve heard some of these and will definitely find value in knowing the truth.
