Chance Webster – [Systems Engineer]
There are often tasks in IT departments that tend to create a lot of legwork and require significant time and effort to complete. Reconciling hardware and software inventories, patching servers and PCs, mitigating security risks or misconfigurations, and deploying software quickly to many PCs or servers in a short amount of time are challenges that every IT department faces. Baramundi Management Suite helps resolve many time-consuming tasks that you may have in your organization.
With Baramundi Management Suite, hardware and software inventories can be automated, which reduces the manual overhead of collecting inventory information. Inventories can then be broken out by static groups or groups based on specific attributes such as operating system versions or available disk space. Inventory information can also be obtained from SNMP capable devices such as switches, routers, firewalls, and printers to reduce the overhead even further.
Security and vulnerabilities are also easier to manage using Baramundi Management Suite. By providing vulnerability information in a consolidated way, it allows prioritization of these fixes either per machine or per specific vulnerability. Baramundi Management Suite provides a platform which can be used to replace your WSUS deployment and provide you with a managed, up to date catalog of third party updates to help keep these applications updated. In addition, a compliance management module is available to allow you to scan for any new vulnerabilities after your patch deployment is complete.
Software deployment throughout the organization using Baramundi Management Suite is a snap. If you are using a pre-packaged Microsoft Installer or other executable package, you can easily create a package to deploy that software with just a few mouse clicks. If, however, the software requires some customization during the install, you can use the Baramundi Automation Studio to step through the installation as you normally would, recording each step along the way, to create your deployment package. Once completed, you will be able to deploy even the most difficult applications quickly and easily.
Baramundi Management Suite is one of many systems management platforms. What makes it stand out among the likes of SCCM, Altiris, and other systems management platform is the ease of use. You can achieve tasks in minutes that have taken hours, if not days, to accomplish before. Baramundi Management Suite also allows you to definitively see, in real-time, that action has been taken for a particular task. Baramundi Management Suite is systems management in real time.
