Hello all,


I am brand new here and I am trying to find some answers for a small company I work for. I am not very knowledgeable in the networking department so please bare with me.


First of all, we currently contract out most of our networking needs to a different company. I will not name which, as I have been hired to phase them out so to speak. We are looking for a software that can monitor all the computers on our network and let us know what needs to be updated/fixed. We would also like this software to be able to gain remote access to each of these computers within our network. If there is a possible piece of software that can do this, as well as provide internet security such as software provided by Zscaler, that would be amazing. I have done some research, but I am looking for a more knowledgeable person with experience in these types of software to give a recommendation and possibly point me in the right direction.



Thanks in advance!

PRTG or Solarwinds are good choices for network monitoring. There may be software available that will provide antivirus as well but I'm not familiar with any.
