Restrict Users to Specific Tasks

Role Based Administration

With the technology improvements and the application of computers in every other field, the profile of a system administration has greatly increased. In a midsize network, it is quite an impossible task for a single person to cover all the aspects of system administration. Desktop Central answers this concern through its User & Role Management module; delegating routine activities to chosen users with well-defined permission levels.

User-Defined and Pre-Defined Roles

You can tailor-make any number of roles in Desktop Central and give them permissions of your choice based on your personalized needs. These roles can then be associated with Desktop Central Users. There are also a set of pre-defined roles that you can readily use:

  • Administrator - The Administrator role signifies the Super Admin who exercises full control, on all modules
  • Guest - The Guest Role retains the Read Only permission to all modules.
  • Technician - The Technician Role has a well defined set of permissions to do specific operations. Users under the Technician role are restricted from performing all the operations listed under the Admin tab.
  • Auditor - The Auditor role is specially crafted for Auditing Purposes. This role will help you grant permissions to auditors view the details of software inventory, check for license compliance, etc.
  • Remote Desktop Viewer - The Remote Desktop Viewer Role will allow the users associated with it to Invoke a Remote desktop connection and view details of users who had connected to a particular system.
  • IT Asset Manager - The IT Asset Manager has complete access to the Asset Management module and all the other features are inaccessible.
  • Patch Manager - The Patch Manager role has complete access to the Patch Management module and all the other modules/features are inaccessible.
  • Mobile Device Manager - The Mobile Device Manager has complete access to the MDM module and all the other modules/features are inaccessible.

Defining Scope for Users

When it comes to IT Management, empowering every user with specific privilege to manage all the computers in the network engages a huge part of risk. You might end up in users deploying Patches to all the computers or servers, which were not supposed to be the target. Role Based Administration feature of Desktop Central ensures that your administrators will have enough permissions and not excess permissions to take unduly advantage. You can specify a Scope for the user, which means you can limit the user to manage a defined set of computers. So that the User is restricted to manage only a well defined target, set by the administrator.
