I am looking for ways to run our IT department more efficiently.  I was wondering if anyone new of any appliances or software that they purchased that has saved them time and headaches.  We only have an IT staff of two supporting 160 people, 140 computers, windows server, exchange server, pac server, BES server, and an AS400.

I guess my main concerns are:
Internet usage - security
managing computers/software
Security

Im sure there are others but those are probably the main ones.

This probably doesn't address every concern, but Spiceworks is a great network survey and management tool.

Anyone try webhawk?  I did a web demo with them and it looked pretty cool.

I haven't checked out webhawk, but just so you know, Spiceworks is free. That's always a huge plus in my book :).
