Leverage Klas, 3rd party or bring your own automation and configuration  playbooks, all of which can be executed against one or many hosts simultaneously from the centralized portal.

Blackrock supports the integration of Ansible libraries and Ansible collections, allowing you to manage devices in alignment with the organization’s needs e.g. technology, department, or role.

Group devices by geographic location, firmware, or hardware characteristics and quickly determine the running configuration and date of last modification on devices.

The integrated map allows you to easily identify assets with issues.

Giving you the freedom to manage edge deployments from anywhere

Blackrock integrated security allows IT professionals to securely manage their edge deployments from anywhere, without the need for software on the device. Furthermore, Blackrock provides security audit insights into configuration changes made on the device. With Blackrock, IT professionals can quickly determine if a device configuration has deviated from the centralized configuration.
