Introduction to Direct Endpoint Management plugin for Kaseya VSA

Description of ESET DEM plugin for Kaseya VSA

ESET Direct Endpoint Management integration establishes direct communication between ESET endpoint/encryption solutions and the Kaseya Virtual System Administrator (VSA). The Kaseya VSA endpoint agent can also deploy and manage endpoints, so administrators do not need additional servers or an intermediate console to manage the product. After a short installation process, the integration is embedded in the Kaseya VSA interface and is always available to the administrator. The integration is created specifically for Kaseya. Therefore, the integration uses features well known by the Kaseya VSA (for example,  filtering options according to Agent name or Machine groups and the option to choose a View are available across the ESET integration. In addition, the integration also uses the same concepts as the ESET PROTECT On-Prem Web Console.

Why you should use ESET DEM plugin for Kaseya VSA

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can manage ESET endpoint products (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and ESET Endpoint Encryption (full-disk encryption) directly from the Kaseya appliance (cloud and on-premise) without needing ESET PROTECT On-Prem.

There is no cost to run the ESET PROTECT On-Prem server.

If ESET PROTECT On-Prem is already set up, you can use Kaseya and ESET PROTECT On-Prem (version 8+) simultaneously. For example, you can use Kaseya for daily tasks and occasionally log in to the ESET PROTECT On-Prem Web Console for more complex solutions.

Endpoint management is accessible from a single point of contact for all MSP administrators.

The user interface is based on the same concept as the ESET PROTECT On-Prem Web Console user interface.
