SMB IT Challenge #1:
Complexity
• Deploying patches, OSs, and
  applications are major undertakings.
• Employees may be distracted during
  peak working times.

• Tracking hardware and software
  assets is a time-consuming process.

• IT staff must visit the physical
  locations of PCs and servers to
  perform tasks.

• Many of the current network
  maintenance solutions are difficult to
  install and require a lot of customization.

SMB IT Challenge #2:
Security
• It’s difficult to manage and deploy
  patch versions.
• Without the latest updates, Windows
  PCs and servers are more
  vulnerable to attack.
• When an attack does occur, it’s
  difficult to identify the source of the
  problem and protect the rest of the
  network.
• IT staff is reactive vs. proactive to
  problems.

SMB IT Challenge #3:
Management
• IT staff needs to physically go to the
  machines to perform tasks.
• Maintaining mobile workforce
  machines can be challenging.
• Asset tracking is difficult.
• Having machines constantly running
  is not energy-efficient.
