Nexthink for Continuous Compliance Validation


Most organizations conduct some form of periodic security compliance and audit function. Sometimes the evaluation is done for internal purposes and sometimes a formal external audit is required. Regardless of which type of compliance audit you are required to perform, it is generally best practice to use an independent tool to verify that your processes and systems are in compliance with established polices and regulations.

Nexthink End-user IT Analytics allows you to define and monitor in real-time your compliance criteria across Windows, Mac OS and Mobile devices. Nexthink’s unique real-time analytics captures all executions and all network connections being made by your endpoints and provides new visibility and insight into security compliance within your environment.

Check out this demo showing how Nexthink is able to proactively uncover issues related to security and compliance and provides continuous real-time monitoring to ensure your your environment matches your acceptable risk profile.

Shine a Brighter Light on Security Using End-user Experience Monitoring and Analytics


Organizations use a wide variety of tools to track and manage security in their environment. Many of these tools are great at aggregating log files and other data but require significant human effort to manually locate and troubleshoot potential security issues. The following video demonstrates just how easy it is to leverage end-user experience monitoring and analytics from Nexthink to quickly analyze and understand when and how endpoints have been compromised. Using unique visualizations, you will be able to understand the scope of a security breach and how it occurred. Using this same real-time data, you can easily find the clues that will help prevent the spread of attacks and intrusions to other systems. Nexthink enables security analysts and IT Ops to have quick access to essential data from the endpoint that makes it easier to prevent and resolve security issues.
