Did you also know . . . that organizational IT compliance or security officers no longer need to worry about the patch statuses of laptops that never return to the WAN or stay on the VPN network for too short a time to patch.  With the communications technology used by Footprints Asset Core to “relay” inventory information including patch status, enterprises can now effectively deploy security patches or other critical software to remote laptops that ensures corporate compliance, thus reducing any potential liability.  Having the ability to manage devices over the Internet greatly reduces the potential for lengthy customer downtime or unscheduled required trips to office locations where “hands on” support would otherwise be required.  By utilizing “Remote Control” or “Direct Access” over the Internet, enterprises can also provide more first call resolutions, improving productivity for those users requiring IT Technical Services while not on the corporate network.
