We are pleased to share the significant success achieved with the introduction of our original Discovery Agent, Slingshot. Developed during the pandemic to inventory work-from-home devices, Slingshot quickly proved to be an invaluable tool and consequently, Block 64 has made the strategic decision to permanently incorporate it into our essential toolset.
However, it is essential to acknowledge that our original Discovery Agent had limitations, notably in gathering comprehensive information from endpoints when compared to our Blockbox or Windows application. Notably, it lacked the capability to extract SQL information and utilization data.
In response to this, we are delighted to announce the release of the latest iteration, Discovery Agent v2. This upgraded version features several enhancements, including auto-update functionality, SQL inventory capabilities, utilization data collection, and expanded support for Oracle and Java Inventory.
As part of our commitment to providing optimal solutions, we have decided to phase out Discovery Agent v1. Moving forward, our focus will be on the continuous development and improvement of the new and enhanced Discovery Agent (v2).
To assist you in the transition, we have outlined a timeline detailing our release plan and the gradual phase-out of both v1 and v2 Discovery Agents. This transition aims to ensure a seamless experience for our partners, incorporating the latest advancements in endpoint management technology.
We appreciate your ongoing partnership and are confident that the upgraded Discovery Agent will further enhance your experience with Block 64. Should you have any questions or require further assistance during this transition, please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated support team.
