What Does RMM Do For You and Your Business
A managed service provider operates on the principle of helping its customer base, but naturally, not all of its clients are geographically close. As such, MSP’s operate using RMM, or “remote monitoring and management,” allowing them to assist clients anywhere as long as they have an integrated connection.
Not all clients, however, are clear on the processes and goals of remote monitoring and management, so in this article, we’ll offer a brief explanation of what it does and how it helps you (especially through Bytagig).
First, it’s important to note that RMM is normally handled through a type of software. The goal is to observe networks, systems, mobile devices, and infrastructure. “Agents” observe a network or device to keep a tab on its “health,” and when irregularities are noticed, typically relating to updates or security. It doesn’t have to be any specific category; if a problem is detected, the appropriate parties are notified. Normally, this results in a support ticket and creates a general outline of the current issue.
Goals of Remote Monitoring Management
There are different software platforms for RMM functions, but they generally share the same goals. If your MSP uses a type of RMM, normally they do the following:
- Creates detailed reports about system activity for the MSP
- Maintain and update systems as necessary
- Protect networks from incoming threats by monitoring networks
- Resolve and troubleshoot IT issues from any location
