Measures to improve security, stability, and performance
  • Introduction of multi-factor authentication (MFA): It is now possible to add a second level of security in addition to the user password. More information in the baramundi user forum
  • The options for multi-factor authentication: 
    • E-Mail: Users receive a security code by e-mail, which they must enter when they log in. 
    • Authenticator app: Users generate a security code via an app like Google Authenticator, which they can install on their smartphone.

Improve Windows endpoint stability with new blue screen detection

The latest Argus Experience feature automatically records all blue screen incidents on Windows end devices. IT teams can now immediately visualize and analyze crash data to identify causes and take steps to improve system stability.

Key benefits?

  • Proactive troubleshooting: Quickly identify the causes of system crashes to minimize downtime and maximize productivity.

  • Improved IT security: Recognize patterns that could indicate security problems before they become serious threats.

  • Optimizing user experiences: Improve end users’ overall digital experience by increasing system reliability and performance.

No more blindspots - the new user feedback

The endpoint's data on performance and stability only reflects part of the reality, because ultimately, it also depends on user satisfaction. The new user feedback simply asks the user themselves and provides the admin with a detailed evaluation, which means that no negative user experience goes undetected. 

This gives the admin a holistic overview of their IT infrastructure and its users.
