Manage your devices centrally
April 2018, CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Cyber Security, Products
Axis Communications has announced the release of AXIS Device Manager, an on premise device management tool that offers a cost-effective and secure way to manage all major installation and operational device management tasks. Moreover, in a world where security threats are becoming more common, AXIS Device Manager facilitates proactive device and network protection. It is suitable for managing up to a couple of thousand Axis network cameras, access control and audio devices on one site, or several thousand devices across multiple sites.
The broad range of device management functions available include:
• Automatically assign IP addresses.
• Install, configure, replace and upgrade any single device.
• Copy configurations between thousands of devices.
• Connect to multiple servers/systems.
• Restore points and factory default settings.
• Upgrade device firmware.
• Manage and update user accounts and passwords.
• Deploy, and renew HTTPS & IEEE 802.1x certificates.
Importantly, in an environment where technology is in a state of constant change and evolution, and threats from cybercriminals become more sophisticated, it is essential that any infrastructure related to safety and security is managed dynamically day-to-day. The Device Manager delivers significant enhancements to device security by enabling centralised account, password and certificate management as well as hardening devices according to the Axis hardening guide. This makes it easier and more cost efficient for system installers and administrators to proactively manage and implement important security management features.
“Being able to access and efficiently install, adapt and secure all of the devices on your network saves a tremendous amount of time and effort. AXIS Device Manager is the go-to tool for reaching all Axis devices – whatever stage of their lifecycle – and make needed adjustments,” commented Ola Lennartsson, global product manager, system management at Axis Communications. “In today’s fast-paced world, any device or network that is static is not only old-fashioned, it is potentially prone to cyber threats. Therefore, it is important we ensure our customers can use a tool that allows them to easily, rapidly and decisively manage all of the devices on their network. AXIS Device Manager is that tool.”
AXIS Device Manager will replace AXIS Camera management. It is available as a free download at https://www.axis.com/za/en/products/axis-device-manager.
