In the most comprehensive implementations, ConsoleWorks is the single pane of glass for managing and helping to integrate the foundation of the IT enterprise.
To support these robust implementations, ConsoleWorks has an enormous amount of flexibility for managing the standard IT hardware devices and applications, and also enabling less common devices to be brought under the same management environment through its integration capabilities.
In addition, ConsoleWorks provides a number of methods that enable the product to be adapted to the specific IT enterprise requirements for the day-to-day security and management of hardware, virtual machines, and applications.
All of these advanced capabilities help to integrate ConsoleWorks into the tools, processes, and requirements of our customers rather than forcing our customers’ processes to work with the product. Some of these capabilities relate to:
- Intelligent Event Modules (IEMs)
- Controlled Automation
- Command Control
- Expect-Lite Routines

When it comes to security, ConsoleWorks offers many unique features to ensure consistent security practices across the entire IT infrastructure, including robust Access Control capabilities using a role-based/task-based permissions model.
Privileged users should be able to access only those interfaces needed to perform their work. Role-based access and control in the IT foundation ensures that interfaces cannot be accessed without permission. Users only see the interfaces assigned to them.
ConsoleWorks provides advanced role-based access and control capabilities with LDAP integrations for fine-grained control of access rights and privileges across all managed connections. Access Control Rules enable administrators more granular and graduated control over what specific users can do inside ConsoleWorks and how they can use ConsoleWorks to access and interact with managed assets.
In ConsoleWorks 4.6, the permissions model has been completely re-engineered. Significant enhancements have been made with new capabilities that allow very granular control over what any one person is allowed to do in ConsoleWorks, particularly with separation of duties.
