Deploying Coro via ConnectWise Automate

This guide describes how to deploy Coro to an endpoint device using ConnectWise Automate.

ConnectWise Automate is a remote monitoring and management (RMM) solution that provides complete access and control over agent and agentless devices across your network. You can remotely access devices, either manually or automatically, without disrupting users while resolving performance and security issues.

The procedure in this section describes:
