bMS Manufacturing Edition (ME), Argus Cockpit and other bMS 2020 improvements took into account requests and feedback from the community of more than 3,000 baramundi UEM customers worldwide.
bMS Manufacturing Edition and Android Dedicated Devices Support
bMS ME is a new version of bMS designed specifically for managing and securing networked production environments. It automates the processes of inventory and vulnerability assessment for Industrial PCs and controllers as well as Android based, dedicated devices and Windows-based industrial control systems.
The first implementation of bMS ME includes the new IC Inventory module for automated discovery, mapping and management of widely used Siemens SIMATIC S7 series industrial control devices. Users also can customize SIMATIC device profiles by adding configuration, location or name data. Device management tasks can be defined and executed manually, at specific times, or at regular maintenance intervals. Siemens SIMATIC S7 support adds to existing bMS support for Beckhoff control systems, other industrial PCs and controllers.
bMS ME also offers support for Android Enterprise: Dedicated Devices to improve the security and performance of Android based mobile devices used as handheld scanners in logistics, or tablets for retail sales product demonstrations and configuration. Devices can be restricted to specific authorized apps for efficient and consistent use by multiple employees. Dedicated Devices support is available in the baramundi Mobile Device Management Premium module which already is widely used by business users to manage company- and user-owned Android devices.
Cloud-Based Argus Cockpit and Other Remote Endpoint Management Features
Named for the multi-eyed, all-seeing god of Greek mythology, Argus Cockpit features multitenancy and lets onsite or remote IT teams view the real-time status of vulnerability scanning, OS and app installation, remote system imaging, and other bMS jobs via any desktop or mobile browser. It enables secure system monitoring by IT staff in any location without requiring VPN connections to company servers.
Other innovations in bMS 2020 that improve remote endpoint management include expanded capabilities for software cost control in the baramundi License Management Module. The new modules makes it easier and faster to import software inventory, license and contract data from external sources, especially after companies acquired and deployed new software to equip hundreds of work-from-home users at the start of pandemic lockdowns.
bMS 2020 also includes enhanced views of endpoint status in Windows Security Center, secure enrollment of Windows endpoints outside the company network, and an improved interface for the user self-service software Kiosk.
bMS 2020 is available immediately during the pandemic with no cost or obligation, or as part of baramundi’s regular 30-day free bMS trial offer after the pandemic.
