A web-based, intuitive administration solution for managing an unlimited number of Unicon eLux end devices

Karlsruhe, September 22nd 2022 – Unicon, an expert in end-user computing and a leading software provider for cloud devices, is expanding its proven Scout Management Platform with a new web-based solution that enables administrators to manage all of an organization’s eLux endpoints even more easily and efficiently. Scout Board can be installed and used from Scout version 15.2209. 

Managing numerous endpoints and organizational units can never be easy enough for administrators. Unicon has been helping companies of all sizes, government agencies and managed service providers to provide employees with secure, location-independent, and hardware-independent data access to corporate structures for over 25 years. They do so via the lean Linux operating system eLux, as well as via the management solution Scout, which manages all eLux clients.

Scout Board comes with Scout Version 15.2209

This fall, Unicon will showcase the next evolutionary stage of operational endpoint management. The company is giving its proven “Scout Console” a new web-based management solution. Scout Board comes with a new look and feel and is based on the latest intuitive UI/UX concepts for organization management and device administration. The new feature set leverages existing Scout servers and associated databases, making deployment quick and easy. There is no need to change or set configurations, permissions, etc.

Scout Board will be released this October with the next version 2209. Administrators can optionally enable Scout Board during an update. Scout Board will be active by default during a new installation.

Scout Board will address many key use cases from the beginning and will be continuously further developed. Future versions will expand its range of functions.

It meets latest customer and partner requirements

“Scout Board expands our Scout solution to include a web interface, with a state-of-the-art workflow and a new look” explains Philipp Benkler, Managing Director of Unicon. “We are addressing all customers who want to equip their branch offices and administrators with basic organization and device management functions. This new product provides easy web-based access to all relevant functions and rights management of end devices and organizational units.”

“Scout Board is the result of an extensive development effort made by all our teams” enthuses Aladdin Özenir, Product Owner at Unicon. “In this process, we have worked closely with external stakeholders such as partners and customers and incorporated their requirements into our work. Scout Board is based on a modern concept for all administrators and security professionals that deploy end-user computing. This development now provides managers with features such as remote employee support (mirroring), access to dynamic device groups, command scheduler, startup, reboot, shutdown and many more through easy-to-use web access.”

On September 27, Unicon will present the new Scout Board in a webinar. Gain exclusive insights into the web-based and intuitive device management, including a live demo, before the release.
