hey Dave Littman, Truth in IT and I am

00:12

joined today by Jonathan Langer Jonathan

00:15

is executive Sales Manager with

00:17

barramundi software Jonathan welcome

00:19

yeah good to meet you Dave

00:21

all right glad to have you so today we

00:23

are talking about managing endpoint

00:25

devices we're talking about managing

00:27

Windows devices Apple devices servers

00:31

desktops mobile devices even Android so

00:34

Jonathan give us a little high-level

00:36

overview of barramundi we'll get into

00:38

some Q&A; yeah thanks Dave

00:40

so barramundi um is a comprehensive

00:42

endpoint management solution that's

00:45

designed to manage your mobile devices

00:47

as well as your Windows desktop Windows

00:49

servers we've actually been around for

00:51

17 years now started off as basically

00:54

back then a migration project from two

00:57

university students migrating from

00:58

Windows NT to Windows 2000 and out of

01:01

that project basically the whole company

01:03

evolved we have over two and a half

01:04

thousand customers know and are probably

01:06

yeah there's a software product that's

01:09

most comprehensive and easy to use in

01:11

that space right now okay great so when

01:13

we talk about let's talk about managing

01:15

endpoint devices are we talking about

01:17

you know knowing where their physical

01:19

locations are managing patch updates

01:21

making sure that you know you can

01:25

protect them in case they get lost or

01:28

stolen help us understand what what

01:29

management of these devices really yes

01:31

they're actually you just covered a

01:32

couple of these aspects concerning your

01:35

classic Windows desktops laptops servers

01:38

um obviously patching has become a

01:40

larger and larger issue concerning

01:42

security so barramundi can really help

01:44

you to detect any known or common

01:47

vulnerability and exploit and visualize

01:50

that so it can tell you how you need to

01:51

prioritize patching and handling your

01:53

software as well as remediated

01:55

remediating that and that as well the

01:57

window side and on the third-party

01:59

application side that's one thing we

02:03

actually have an extremely strong engine

02:05

there for software deployment with a lot

02:07

of software products you have to

02:08

repackage them to deploy them in a large

02:10

scale with barramundi you can just

02:11

automate that

02:12

usually saves about 80% of the time that

02:15

you would need with other competing

02:16

products yeah and then going all the way

02:19

to the OS side where we can actually

02:20

automate your Windows 10 in-place

02:22

upgrades which can be difficult of since

02:26

there's in your release coming out every

02:27

six months from Windows 10 at the moment

02:29

ya know the mobile side it's also app

02:32

management you can do inventory on the

02:34

machines and you can lock them if they

02:37

get lost what remotely wiped them all

02:39

the classic and basically mobile device

02:41

management stuff okay great and you know

02:43

one last question but as you know

02:45

cybersecurity and ransomware are top of

02:47

mind for every IT professional and

02:51

frequently we know that the the laptop

02:54

or the mobile phone is in many cases the

02:58

the point of attack so how can

03:01

barramundi help our audience prevent

03:04

against circumstances like this that's

03:08

right so a common example one that just

03:11

actually came up was the whole wanna cry

03:12

scenario which was all around the media

03:15

and everything and basically how these

03:18

ransomware works is they always use a

03:21

common unknown vulnerability where RT

03:24

departments just haven't been on top of

03:25

their game patching their software and

03:27

keeping windows and their other

03:29

applications up to date so basically the

03:31

best way how to protect that is really

03:33

to keep your standard stuff up to date

03:35

and yeah sometimes we forget that

03:38

hackers are lazy people as well

03:40

sometimes so they won't find the tiny

03:43

gap that somewhere in the corner but

03:44

they're just gonna use the common

03:45

exploits that are known and 90% of the

03:48

time actually that's what the NSA does

03:49

as well so that's why the whole wanna

03:52

cry thing was actually came out of with

03:55

a hole and as a backdoor that they were

03:57

using yeah and so really just doing your

04:00

basic homework that's what Burundi is

04:02

all about and with that it actually

04:04

prevents most the most common and yes

04:07

security risks from actually affecting

04:09

your environment okay so you guys can

04:11

facilitate an audit of the environment

04:14

and you guys see where patch levels are

04:16

not up to date employ those patches

04:19

exactly and that's actually a very

04:21

strong point of our solutions most

04:23

solutions will say that they can do that

04:25

Mondays benefit is that it's a push

04:27

solution and therefore there's a

04:29

real-time connection basically with

04:31

between the server at the end and the

04:33

actual end point that you're managing

04:34

and therefore you get real-time feedback

04:36

if a patch has been deployed if it's

04:38

been successful if the patch has failed

04:41

yeah and that all with very little

04:43

system load and that's actually pretty

04:45

unique about our software so really if

04:47

you have to close your wanna cry

04:50

loophole on a Monday morning first thing

04:53

before your staff gets in and uses the

04:55

computer barramundi is ideal to actually

04:57

track if that's happened successfully

05:00

and to lock down the device if that's

05:01

not been the case all right very good

05:04
