With the traditional perimeters of security changing and users working from remote locations outside of the safety of the LAN, remote monitoring has become an important tool for IT teams to keep tabs on IT assets and critical data.
With it, IT can manage systems, networks, endpoint devices, and servers from a central location.
How Remote Monitoring helps
The primary purpose of remote monitoring is gathering information and presenting it in an efficient, usable form for IT administrators. With this insight, you can manage core systems and ensure they are patched and appropriately managed.
Remote Monitoring works by keeping track of potential issues, but also allowing IT to resolve them remotely. This reduces the need for on-site interventions – often before end users even notice a problem has occurred.
With Remote Monitoring, everything is managed by IT through centralised dashboards, and tasks can be organised according to priority, team or other criteria depending on workloads.
Key advantages of Remote Monitoring:
- Quickly identify and resolve small issues that could otherwise lead to bigger problems or even system failures
- Keep tabs on legacy systems out of maintenance or without regular updates
- React quickly to data breaches
- Maintain optimal network performance and uptime
- Ensure maximum end-user productivity
