TNI 4.8.0: SAM is scary no more!

Hello, friends!

Do you remember our pre-summer post about the new SAM features? Well, that was just the first stage. Get ready to see the final version of the Software accounting and Licenses tabs!

We admit that the interface of Software accounting used to scare away rather than amaze with its functionality. When you first opened the tab, you experienced something similar to the experience of an airplane passenger who was put in the pilot’s seat and asked to sort out the controls. Now everything looks completely different.

All the data in a single report

One long-requested feature was the ability to output information from Software accounting and Licenses into ordinary table reports. Take a look at how it works:

Now all this information is available in the familiar Report constructor.

Even more space

The details panel used to be fixed in place under the list of software or licenses, which is not always convenient when using widescreen monitors. Now you can reorient it vertically and see a lot more:

Licenses: new features

New design of the Create/Edit license window:

Multiple selection for licenses:

As you can see, Software accounting and license management have become much more user-friendly and easy to use.

If the new look strikes your fancy, download TNI 4.8.0 right here right now.

It looks like we’ll soon run out of single-digit version numbers for TNI 4 updates. Nothing to worry about. We’ll come up with something special in order to jump up to the fifth version

See you soon!

TNI 4.7.5 Microsoft Store apps scan

Hey, Hi, and Hello to all who reads our blog! Without further ado, let’s cover the features we’ve prepared for you this time.

Collecting of information about the installed Microsoft Store apps

We noticed that the popularity of MS Store apps has been growing every month. So we’ve taught TNI to collect this information and display all the apps in a separate category:

Detecting TPM Chips and BitLocker Drive Encryption Status

The TPM Chips and BitLocker Drive Encryption Status can no longer hide from our scanner. You will find the key information about the chip under the “System” category in reports. And for each local disk, you can now see its encryption status.

Timestamp of the last successful ping

It’s now become much easier to search for outdated assets. No more is there a need to frequently scan your storage to find out which assets have been offline for a long time. There’s a new field that will show you the exact time when the ping has last reached the asset in question:

A few network map upgrades

The Network map update is focused on the connections between objects, saving you time and providing new options. From now on, when you cut or copy and paste assets on the map, the links connecting the selected assets will follow, dispensing with the need to redraw them every time. Secondly, we’ve made it possible for you to customize the type of each link, instead of setting one map-wide:

Most of this update was made possible by your feedback and requests. We are sincerely happy when our products meet the needs and high expectations of our beloved users.

See you later!
