In the event of stability problems, it is possible to return to a previous state before changes were made, enabling users to work.

Integrated with other ManageEngine applications to extend functionality

The integration of Desktop Central with Analytics Plus allows for detailed data analysis, advanced filtering and the ability to search for trends.

The system can be integrated with several applications at the same time, being the center of essential data for the organization.

Implementation of applicable security policies

The system detects all applications installed by users with the possibility of blocking those that pose a threat to sensitive data and are not consistent with the accepted standards.

Blacklisting allows users to block unwanted software on all devices without having to analyze each case separately.

Direct access to the end-user device for remote configurations

The functionality allows full access with administrator rights, along with the ability to make the necessary changes and provide immediate assistance.

If the user has several monitors, it is possible to switch between them and transfer the necessary files to help solve the problem in a given situation.

Simultaneous deployment of software to multiple devices

Desktop Central supports a large number of devices and allows for intuitive selection according to the rules adopted in the organization. If the company has many departments or separate companies, each of them can have a separate security policy and the software used.

The application is installed on many devices at the same time, along with information about the current status of operations.

Mobile Device Management allows for the managing of Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

Desktop Central allows full control along with the ability to define security policies, which are then assigned to entire groups of devices.

The basic functionalities include: data protection in the event of theft, the ability to conduct remote sessions, installing applications, sending corporate documents, creating a limited application store (approved by the organization).
