Desktop Management is a never-ending job for administrators. Configuration requests ranging from simple drive mapping to software installation keep the administrators on their toes. With increasing requests and a growth in the number of desktops, it becomes more difficult to keep up with escalating demand on limited manpower.
ManageEngine Desktop Central is a complete Windows desktop management software that enables remote management of desktops and laptops with its remote desktop configuration options and software installations. It leverages the Windows Active Directory and Group Policy Objects of the Windows 2000/2003 Domains to perform the configuration tasks. With over 20 predefined configurations, administrators can perform almost all the regular desktop management activities with ease. It helps to secure and standardize the Windows desktops across the network. The Web-based user interface allows for applying the configuration to a single or group of desktops using a powerful filtering capability.
