PrefixNE in action in the local government sector

Working with customers in local government has shown Prefix IT that organisations in the sector often have particular network management needs:

The ability to create and maintain a rigorous and comprehensive audit trail for hardware and software installed on the network
Tools to quickly and easily check that all software installed on the network is properly licensed
Control over the use of devices such as memory sticks, PDAs, CD-ROMs, which open up PCs and the network to the introduction of viruses, trojans, spyware and other malicious code, as well as the threat of data theft
A local authority in Sussex selected PrefixNE to address these issues. The authority had no control over staff use of external media such as USB devices and CD-ROMs. There was also no way of auditing network assets, or assessing the authority's compliance with software licensing requirements. "It was a very risky situation," commented the authority's Network Manager, and one that I had wanted to address for some time."

PrefixNE was exactly what the authority needed. The suite's real time asset management engine provides comprehensive, up to date information on all network assets, hardware and software, instantly, whenever it is required. The licensing status of every piece of software on the network can be viewed, and the use of external media and devices can be controlled, down to the level of individual ports and devices.

"I was really impressed with PrefixNE," said the Network Manager. "Prefix IT boast that you can do anything in four clicks or less in the central console, and that really is the case. It's put us back in control, given us the information we need, when we need it, and it is so easy to use. Prefix IT are great to deal with, too. It's obvious they not only understand the challenges we face in local government, but actually care about making a difference."

PrefixNE puts the IT professional back in control of the network, with on-demand, real time asset management, software licensing compliance reporting and the tools to enforce corporate and departmental system usage policies.

PrefixNE. Power and control over your network assets.
