Your business may be located in San Francisco, but remote management allows your IT staff to maintain your network no matter where they are physically located.

Whether “IT” is in a conference meeting at the home office in San Francisco or touring facilities in Bejing, remote network management ensures that servers, routers, switches, and other network equipment are up and running 24/7.

Here are three ways your organization can benefit from implementing remote management and monitoring for your network.

Always Have Access

As long as someone in your organization has a direct access point to point or via VPN, you or someone on your staff will still be able to monitor and manage the critical devices within your network. No matter where they or you happen to be.

This kind of network access gives your company the flexibility required in the modern work worlds. No matter where you are, you have peace of mind whether your network spans one office, the country, or the world.

Monitor Remote Offices from Anywhere

Remote network monitoring software allows you to manage devices wherever they are physically located. Consider, for example, a physician’s group that has multiple clinics across the city. Remote monitoring tools allow for monitoring how devices at a central and all remote locations are performing. Alerts from wherever performance falters enable your IT manager to track and fix whatever problem may arise quickly.

Ensure Network Security

Sometimes a network administrator may be suspicious of remote access due to potential threats to the network. For business safety and their peace of mind, network security is ensured by requiring encrypted authentication and consistent protocols for a user logging in.

Most remote network monitoring tools also enable you to grant access to user or admin levels to multiple dashboards or maps.  Tools are also available to update the network and provide patches quickly should a security holes surface.

Security threats are a fact of life, but the tools available in a sound Remote Network Management system ensure they can be defeated quickly.
