  • system monitoring software (Was:Software request)

    Hello All,
    I am trying to find [if it exists] a software for our remote laptops.
    I was looking for a software that monitors all the laptops and checks if they are in compliance with our software versions and if not they will download automatically the update.
    I would prefer not to be NAC and it has to work over the internet without any VPN if possible.

    Thank you in advance.

    Title changed

    Are these laptops domain members?

        So you have users that could possibly connect to your LAN with non domain PC's??

          I'm not aware of any existing products to do what you want. Presumably these machines are owned by the company rather than by the employees? If that's the case I would suggest joining them to the domain and having users connect through VPN.

              Thanks for the link

              Even if you find something suitable, I would still strongly recommend that you join the machines to the domain so that they can be managed more effectively.
