Desktop computers and desktop maintenance are the most critical, yet neglected, part of a company’s computing infrastructure. They are often taken for granted by organizations. The reason? They are inexpensive and can easily be swapped. Thus, when everybody is ready to pay a hefty monthly fee for server and network maintenance, nobody seems to think it is important to enter into a service contract for desktops. People assume that no special skill is required to make a computer work without any difficulty. Organizations feel that it is okay to pay for server and network maintenance, but no one sees a need to do the same for desktops. People often miss the fundamental fact that it is the desktop which connects them with the network. It’s highly ironic that organizations would rather walk the extra mile to keep their networks up and running but will spend nothing to maintain their desktop health.
The tendency to neglect desktop-wellbeing could result in the most dangerous consequences. Why? Just compare your machine with your health. What happens when you skip your periodic health checkups? You miss the messages that your vital systems are trying to convey. Opting for preventive care, on the other hand, gives you full control over your body; no infection is allowed to thrive inside and ruin your health from within. The same goes for your computers. The lack of maintenance may subject your desktops to malicious cyber attacks. When you skip periodic maintenance, you are welcoming the whole gamut of nasty software – viruses, ransomware, malware, and more – to penetrate your system. What is worse? An infected desktop may cause the spread of these malicious elements throughout your computing infrastructure, subsequently affecting every device connected to your server and ultimately sending a big jolt to the server itself.
