Remote Monitoring & Management

RMM offers a range of benefits which include:

Server monitoring – Our software pro-actively monitors all critical software services and hardware components for errors including overheating, high bandwidth usage, low disk space and hard drive SMART errors.

Patch management – We all know some windows updates can cause more issues than they fix, however, some security and critical updates need to be applied almost daily due to vulnerabilities that could be exploited in windows software. Our intelligent patch management can ensure critical and security updates are applied, whilst optional or major updates can be scheduled to ensure minimum downtime, keeping you and your company fully protected.

Managed anti-virus – Most anti-virus software runs scheduled scans at particular intervals, if your PC was switched off during this time, you may need to wait until the next interval. Don’t rely on free anti-virus software for your business. Definition Updates (the core detection engine database) are applied daily or weekly. We can exclude files or folders for specific software where the anti-virus would normally need to be switched off to run so you can stay protected and still work. Our Managed solution applies Definition Updates over the internet every 30 minutes. Scheduled scans are carried out intelligently at the best time for your PC, and if missed will run next time the PC is switched on. If a threat is detected, however small, we are informed instantly and will contact you to investigate further if required.

Remote computer support is a method of troubleshooting software-related problems via remote desktop connections. Technicians use software that allows them to access the user’s desktop via the Internet.
