"We have met patch management and secured controls required for Federal Compliance by implementing ManageEngine Desktop Central. Our workstations are now more organized, manageable, and secure than we could have ever imagined possible," says Steven Deines of Bank of Holden, a satisfied customer.

"Adding support for Windows workgroups is a significant enhancement as it has opened the door to many small and medium enterprises that do not have an Active Directory setup in their network," says Mathivanan, Director -- Product Development at AdventNet.
