We bought the new version of CSA Cisco Security Agent Version 6.0 and as we are intended to download and Install this software in our Corporation just I want to know if there is a any other way of distributing the CSA (Agents) instead of using URL (the method mentioned in the document of Agents download and Install, Like Pushing the software after creating a kit on the CSA MC to the whole end user without their interaction.

Thank you.

Well there's all sorts of creative way of doing this. From an agent kit standpoint, you'll want to create a kit that has no end-user interaction. For distribution I can recommend the following options:

1) PsExec - This will require some scripting and the ability to access the workstations with an admin account. The plus to this solution is it's free. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx

2) MS System Center Configuration Manager - Great for AD environments. Lots of deployment options, but requires a significant knowledge of the underlying directory. http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/configurationmanager/en/us/default.aspx

Just a couple options for you. Hope this helps!

How do you deploy other software now?

Shouldn't be any different deploying CSA.

Create kits with no user interaction as Michael suggested and off you go.
