Remote Office Management

Posted on January 3, 2009 by Minder Singh

Get centralized control of the IT devices in your remote offices and branch offices (ROBO).

The proliferation of branch and remote offices is a positive sign of company growth. But it can also be a tremendous challenge for IT infrastructure management:

  • With limited or no dedicated IT staff, remote/branch offices often rely on headquarters-based IT administrators, or third party service providers, to fix networking and server problems
  • Branch office networks can have an array of heterogeneous IT devices from multiple vendors
  • Many branch offices, especially retail locations and banks, contain sensitive customer information and/or credit card data that can be vulnerable to intrusion

With hundreds, or potentially thousands, of IT assets spread out across the globe, a centralized infrastructure management solution with the proper safeguards to manage these devices is critical.
