Utility software improves the function of an individual computer or an entire network of computers and helps to maintain the smooth operation of the infrastructure. It performs certain tasks such as system configuration, virus detection and deletion of unwanted files.
Antivirus software is one of the most popular types of utility software, protecting computers from all types of malicious attacks to the operating system. It works by detecting a virus and notifying the user or administrator if it’s part of a large network such as in a school, college, university or organisation, to take action and secure the computer. Viruses are filed in a vault and administrators can instruct the antivirus software to delete the malicious programme or leave it in the vault.

It is recommended to schools, higher education facilities and businesses because of its ease of use and its flexibility to be installed across a large network of computers.
System Configuration Software
A part of Software Engineering, System software configuration (SCM) tracks and controls changes that have been made to a systems software. A useful tool when multiple devices share a network, the SCM can determine what was changed and who changed it if something goes wrong.
System configuration software would typically be used by the IT department in a school or business as they would set up a change control board whose primary function is to approve or reject all change requests sent against any configured baseline. These alerts are recorded and turned into reports for ease of access to all necessary information on the status of the development process.
Wondershare Recoverit offers a utility software package which includes a range of tools to set up, secure and configure digital devices.
Choosing the right antivirus and system configuration software can seem daunting. With so many options on the market, selecting the one that’s right for your school, higher education facility or organisation can be tricky. Contacting a company like Edtech Direct, who have extensive experience in the sector, will ensure you are buying the right software.
