Proactive Network Services (PNS)
Proactive Network Services (PNS), also commonly known as Managed Network Services (MNS) or Managed IT Services.
Under our PrintGuardian PNS program, we offer subscription-based maintenance services to detect and prevent network issues before they occur, enabling our clients servers, workstations and other network equipment to perform at peak levels with maximum uptime.
PrintGuardian PNS provides automated remote monitoring and maintenance of servers and workstations on your network as well as friendly, professional Help Desk support. PrintGuardian PNS is offered for a fixed monthly fee that is based on the number of devices (servers, workstations, etc) that are on your network.
PrintGuardian PNS provides powerful tools and resources that will monitor and maintain your servers and workstations, with minimal impact to your users. Typically, workstation users are often not even aware of its existence because of the use of non-invasive software programs that reside on workstations and servers, securely sending activity data directly to the service operations center, where activity is monitored and analyzed, detecting any possible issues and determining whether or not it can be remotely repaired before a real problem occurs. For instance, PrintGuardian PNS will automatically apply antivirus protection updates to all computers on the network so that there are no unforeseen network outages or slow-downs on user workstations.
The intelligent software tools continuously learn each client's unique network patterns and adapts the programs to maintain optimum performance for each individual client network.
We offer comprehensive, on-demand, web-based reporting that provides high level summary reports, as well as, more detailed reports that include information on device OS, installed applications, hardware, antivirus, anti-spyware and more.
PrintGuardian Proactive Network Services (PNS) provides our customers with peace of mind, knowing that their IT management tasks are being handled proactively (before an incident occurs across the entire network) by trained and certified technicians, for one fixed monthly fee.
