PC Power Manager for ePO with Wake-On-LAN Secure

PC Power Manager for ePO reduces desktop/laptop energy use and saves from $40,000-$60,000 per 1,000 desktop computers per year – each and every year. The software installs just like any other security component within McAfee ePO. The user never leaves the ePO console or the operating parameters of ePO when using Power Manager. Reports tell you how much you are saving across the enterprise, group, or system.

Many power companies across the country have energy reduction programs that provide rebates to cover the entire cost of installation, deployment, and on-going support. The cost to McAfee ePO users is zero when there is a utility company rebate available. Autonomic Software does the work for you including: installation, deployment, training, and support. Yearly savings can pay for McAfee’s Endpoint Security Suite. PC Power Manager helps Autonomic Software in one of its chief goals – “drive cost-of-ownership of our products to zero.”

PC Power Manager also provides Wake-on-LAN Secure for waking up computers in off time to perform network and endpoint tasks, updates and maintenance. There is no need to reconfigure routers to enable wake-on-LAN across multiple subnets.
