What is user endpoint monitoring?
User Endpoint Monitoring allows for the detailed monitoring of an end user's Windows workstation by collecting availability, activity, and performance metrics using the ServicePilot Endpoint Agent. This package also compiles a detailed inventory of the hardware and software for each workstation in order to facilitate end-user workstation management.
End-user workstation management is necessary to protect the data and network infrastructure of an organization. Management of end-user devices includes installing and updating operating systems and application patches, managing user accounts, and maintaining up-to-date security.
An end user device management plan coupled with a comprehensive endpoint monitoring solution will go a long way in helping any business excel. A few reasons why end-user monitoring and management is necessary for any business:
- Security: keep businesses secure by knowing exactly what is in the endpoint machines
- Increased efficiency: keep businesses efficient by keeping workstation up-to-date
- Cost savings: keep IT investments down by getting the most out of the existing infrastructure
- Endpoint services can modernize a business by having the latest technology working at the most optimal level
