System administrators can use the IPAM software to view the entire network from a single console and create multi-level hierarchical address spaces with ease. DHCP and DNS servers can be monitored and configured centrally. IPAM can be used to manage both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and has a robust framework for detailed tracking of IP address monitoring.Thus you can keep track of employee activity in order to increase productivity and detect potential data breach.
DNS Security Software
One of the primary requirements of any business is a working network connection. As a result, DNS security software is essential. DNS or Domain Name server connects multiple network devices over the internet by figuring out the IP Address of the recipient from its host name. However, DNS, by design lacks security protocols. Thus it is prone to attacks. DNS caching, spoofing, tunneling, Denial of Service and other means of attacks have frequently affected the connectivity of various organizations.
Procurement software is a class of business software that automates transactions and selection and ordering of products and approving purchases. The software takes care of all bills and invoices electronically so that a manager may review them easily. This creates an added advantage since the procurement department may group multiple buyers’ order to generate maximum discounts and thus increase the revenue. Procurement software provides long term cost saving and facilitates ease of management freeing up labor and thus lessening overhead.
Customer Relationship Management software is an comprehensive framework that uses algorithm based approach to collect, analyse and interpret customer data and predict client behaviour based on models created. It has a robust back system based on clout support and can automate menial tasks thus improving employee efficiency. Moreover, by interacting with customers, the software creates a profile that it can access the next time the same customer has a query, which is not possible for employees since the same employee may not attend to that customer and it is not possible for a human brain to keep track of all customer related queries. Instead, if a machine can learn this and retrieve necessary data, it becomes much easier to customize the interaction and increase client satisfaction.
