SolarWinds announced the launch of SolarWinds Service Desk Enterprise, a new solution to help enterprises manage IT complexity, scale IT support services, and increase security within the service desk.

SolarWinds Service Desk Enterprise offers advanced ITSM capabilities that meet the heightened security expectations of modern enterprises and improve key service management processes for employees. Mature organizations require an enhanced level of dedicated support, the Enterprise plan includes on-boarding management and a dedicated customer success partner to help ensure successful adoption.

SolarWinds Service Desk Enterprise meets the challenges of modern enterprises by providing an upgraded CMDB data model to help service desk agents navigate even the most complex IT infrastructures. By increasing visualization of IT configuration items, SolarWinds Service Desk Enterprise makes it possible for organizations to better deliver robust change impact assessments, speed up approvals, reduce incident resolution times, and improve risk analysis and overall IT service efficiency. With strengthened measures that require multi-factor authentication for service desk logins, SolarWinds Service Desk Enterprise also helps its customers meet various security requirements and compliance standards.
