As a result users can make informed decisions to improve processes, technology, projects and security across the business."

The data presented by Xtraction for DesktopNow enables users to visualize the state of their IT environments and supports a range of security and user experience use cases including:

  • At-A-Glance Dashboards - Administrators have an instant overview of metrics such as active users, database size, average profile sizes, personalized application counts, logon counts and other user activity

  • Highlight Most Allowed Applications - Administrators are able to present a live view of the top executables which have been permitted within an organization, for licensing purposes or identifying security incidents

Xtraction for DesktopNow real-time dashboards and reports are available out of box, and can be viewed in a web browser by IT staff, department heads and other interested parties. It offers a light footprint and quick installation for new and existing DesktopNow customers.
