In our connected world, where fleets of dedicated devices increasingly power retailers, hospitals, and warehouses alike, smart device management is a critical skill. For most people, this conjures up an image of a technician making sure your kiosks, energy meters, or vending machines keep humming, and quickly fixing them if they break.
At Bsquare, when we talk about device management for the internet of things (IoT), we don’t stop there. Yes, for both security and operational effectiveness, it’s imperative that someone or, better yet, another machine is always paying attention to your fleet. But we offer our customers a complete IoT device management solution.
This starts with the creation of your device. Our engineers offer a device hardening solution that ensures your machines are securely locked down, able to weather accidents and bad actors alike. We also license operating systems and configure them correctly for your hardware and application requirements.
Then our secure device management solution, SquareOne, monitors and manages the health of every device, every step of the way – to troubleshoot, diagnose, repair, and, when needed, update and upgrade. SquareOne can also be configured to monitor and report on the specific device health indicators that are uniquely important to each customer. And if a system crashes, it can fully reboot remotely with built-in Intel vPro technology.
Why is all this so important? Taking our complete and integrated approach to enterprise device management means you can configure your fleet to meet your business requirements, whether you’re tracking the temperature of supermarket freezers or conveying instructions on a digital highway sign. This is the best way to ensure your dedicated devices are secure from the start and then keep them healthy and running smoothly. It also eliminates risk to the business by lowering your downtime and costs.
We know. We’ve been doing this for 25 years.
At Bsquare, we provide the only complete device management solution across the entire life cycle of connected devices, from device hardening to OS licensing to secure monitoring and management. These are the essential tools and knowledge that enable customers to keep critical device fleets up and running.
And our technology is completely OS agnostic — SquareOne is the only device management solution compatible across Windows, Android, and Linux systems to help manage operations smoothly and flexibly by monitoring various types of devices under one umbrella.
So yes, you need that technician (human or otherwise) keeping an eye on the health of your IoT devices. But to thrive in our connected world, you need much more – a smart, complete device management solution to remotely update, monitor, and manage your business-critical fleet.
