UD computer management tool
The University provides a central computer management service for faculty and staff computers (including desktop and laptop computers). Management may be handled by IT or by your unit; some units have specific configurations that cater to their employees' specific data needs.
The computer management service is available only to faculty and staff. University-owned or operated computers must be managed centrally by either IT or the unit responsible for that computer.
Contact the IT Support Center to discuss availability and features.
IT offers a standard computer management package. Individual units may have customized offerings based on unit data needs.
- Automated patch management
- Automated anti-virus scanning
- Automated session timeouts
- Automated firewall configuration
- Application control
- Administrator account control
- Other functions and configurations may be available within your unit
The computer management service is not used to monitor user activity or read user files.
Management of a specific computer function does not necessarily exclude user involvement. For example, a user with a demonstrated need for administrator account access may retain that access on a managed system.
Using the service
To request use of the computer management service, contact your unit IT professional or submit a Help Request to the IT Support Center.
