    Automation Features

    Kaseya VSA’s automation engine is a web-based platform aimed at being both powerful and easy to use. It supports the ability to audit and inventory, discover devices on the network, enforce policies, handle backup and disaster recover, deploys software and patches and remediate service desk tickets. It is highly extensible in that it is driven by scripts built by Kaseya as well as other users of Kaseya VSA. I find this last aspect to be a powerful one and one that can be a key differentiator for Kaseya. Not only can you buy solutions created by other parters and users, but you can sell your own by publishing them in its Automation Exchange. This is actually a capability I tried to get into the KACE roadmap for years, so I’m excited to see Kaseya managed to pull it off.
