Desktop Management Using Desktop Central

Desktop Central is a web-based windows server and desktop management software that helps in managing 1000s of servers/desktops from a central location. It automates the complete desktop management life cycle ranging from a simple system configuration to complex software deployment. With its network-neutral architecture, the administrator can easily manage desktops in any windows networks like Active Directory, Workgroup, or other directory services.

Automate your Desktop Management Routines

Desktop Central automates regular desktop management activities like installing software, patches, and service packs to client computers, standardize the desktops by applying uniform configurations such as wallpapers, shortcuts, printer, etc., secures the client computers by restricting USB, applying security policies, etc., and enables auditing the network systems with complete hardware/software inventories, license compliance details, detecting prohibited software usage in network systems, etc. In simple terms, it helps administrators to automate, standardize, secure, and audit their windows network.
