desktop management

Desktop Management

Traditional desktop management tasks include installing and maintaining hardware and software, spam filtering, and administering user permissions. In recent years, however, security-related tasks have become an increasingly large part of desktop management. As a result, an increasingly large proportion of administrative resources have been devoted to security-related tasks, such as patch management, fighting viruses and spyware, and controlling greynet applications.

What innovative ways is your organization dealing with desktop management?
