What Your CIO Should Know: Automated Policy Enforcement and Desired State for Enterprise PCs
More companies are coming to realize the importance of strong policy enforcement for governing compliance and usage of IT assets at the edge of the network. An integrated approach to managing PC policy, process, and performance ensures companies can achieve maximum availability and compliance while enhancing user productivity and more tightly aligning IT with business goals and objectives.
The process of implementing an automated PC policy enforcement, desired state (corporate standard configuration), or compliance on connect is highly desired. Today, most organizations take either a manual, reactive, or locked-down approach, while some blend a combination of all three. These approaches leave companies open to service gaps and create inefficiency that may leave the business vulnerable to unnecessary risk before policy breaches are identified. Furthermore, they can have a negative impact on user productivity and satisfaction. Completely locking down users PCs or employing a one-size-fits-all policy approach is not always practical. This approach oftentimes impairs end-user productivity.
Automating PC policy enforcement and desired state ensures that local and remote desktops and laptops remain compliant and maintain optimum availability. As a result, companies can reduce PC support costs, gain demonstrable control over assets, ensure compliance with licensing and government regulations, and enhance user productivity and satisfaction.
