Introduction | How we tested | PCE | Verdict


Policy Central Enterprise offers a wide variety of options to control and monitor your users' activities. Most businesses these days run some sort of management software on each system, such as Microsoft SMS or Novell ZENWorks, but PCE fills a real gap in a niche market. Management systems tend to focus on the system rather than the user and depending on your business and what sort of controls you wish to achieve, it's becoming increasingly necessary to be able to maintain an administrative presence at such a basic level.

The application is simple and robust yet rich and flexible. Definitely a product of interest to any IT department.
