Software deployment as easy as ABC

Automate deployment, patching, removal and inventory of software applications across your in-office and remote endpoints at scale. Install software ad-hoc to speed up new user onboarding, or en masse to roll out new software and execute software migration projects. Automated software deployment saves time you and your IT team can spend on more strategic initiatives.

Deploy commonly used applications

Ditch old-school, on-premises software repositories and insecure, community-maintained public repositories.
Deploy the most popular third-party applications from a cloud-based Software Repository, that hosts an ever-growing, up-to-date, and ready-to-deploy collection of applications, curated and tested by Action1’s security research team.

Deploy your custom applications

Upload your custom third-party or proprietary software packages to your private Software Repository within Action1, and roll them out to target workstations or servers, on-site or remote.

Uninstall software remotely

Discover and remove unauthorized, unlicensed, or potentially harmful applications from servers and workstations to maintain compliance.
Force machines to reboot after removal, if required to finish the uninstallation process.

Software deployment automation

Simplify new device onboarding and migration to new software by configuring automations to install required applications to targeted groups of endpoints.

Minimize downtime by scheduling deployments during pre-set maintenance windows, and customizing reboot preferences.

What Our Customers Say

Action1 saves me 10–15 minutes per machine on software deployment. I can access every machine remotely, so I don’t have to literally travel to every location and touch every machine. 

Mike Straffin

IT Director, Angeles Community Health Center

Action1 empowers us to increase operational efficiency dramatically by streamlining our remote IT management. We were able to fully automate our workstation build process — making it 9 times faster whilst increasing quality.

Jon Abbott

Chief Executive Officer, Priority One

We utilize around 20 proprietary applications that aren’t commonly used out in the world. Being able to deploy them easily — and push updates for them — is really helpful.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a software deployment process?

Software deployment is the process that involves installing applications to multiple computers and making sure the latest updates are distributed in a timely fashion. This is a complicated and time-consuming task that gets even more complicated as more and more endpoints are disconnected from the corporate LAN. In fact, manual software deployment can quickly become almost impossible. Today, deployment software, such as Action1, is crucial for system administrators and IT managers.

What are IT software deployment best practices?

1. Have a strategy

Document your software deployment process with a structured checklist to ensure no steps are missed.

2. Create policies

To ensure a particular app is deployed across all workstations, create a policy to check for missing software and force installation for compliance.

3. Automate deployment processes

Configure reboot options and schedule software deployment for when end users are not using their endpoints to avoid disruptions and maximize efficiency.

What are the benefits of the Action1 software deployment tool?

Unlike the other LAN-dependent and cloud-based automated software deployment tools and scripts, Action1 offers the following benefits:

– Enables you to install software on a remote computer not connected to a corporate network (e.g., a laptop of a traveling employee)

– Does not require managed computers to be members of an Active Directory domain for remote software deployment to work

– Automatically installs software on a turned-off computer once it is turned on again

– Runs in the cloud and does not require any infrastructure

– Provides a curated library of the most popular software packages

– Supports both installation and removal of software on remote computers

– Helps automate software deployments across all computers on your network

– Comes built-in with patch management, endpoint management and remote desktop tools.
