Bushel Announces Additional Device Management Capabilities for the Rest of Us
Bushel Addresses Clear Sore Point by Providing Apple Device Management to Businesses of All Sizes
MINNEAPOLIS, MN - March 3, 2015 - Bushel, the Apple device management solution for everyone, today announced a number of important new features designed to make Apple device management easier and more secure than ever. Bushel is a cloud-based solution designed from the ground up to make it easy for regular people to setup, manage and protect their Apple devices anytime from anywhere.
Released in January 2015, Bushel is the only solution that brings enterprise Apple management features to small and medium sized businesses without the need of an IT expert. Bushel makes complex tasks including Apple device setup, security and management, simple and quick -- enabling users to focus on their business, rather than get caught up with managing technology.
New Bushel features include:
Wi-Fi Network Management
Bushel configures iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac to automatically join wireless networks that use WEP, WPA and WPA2. The new feature also encompasses hidden networks. This option allows organizations with anywhere from one to 100 wireless networks to automatically deploy new networks and configure devices so that employees can seamlessly use their devices when traveling between branches or remote offices.
Painless Hard Core Encryption for Mac
Bushel has supported encrypting iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch) since the initial release of the software. Now, Bushel lets businesses automatically encrypt all Macs in the organization. This includes keeping a copy of the encryption keys to unlock encrypted devices, so that in the event of employee turnover, organizations don't also turnover the data on devices. OS X uses a powerful built-in encryption known as FileVault 2 in order to encrypt hard drives of Mac computers. Bushel makes that process worry-free for customers.
Support for iPad-Only Apps
Bushel lets organizations easily manage iPad-only apps available on the App Store. If not managed properly, these apps can easily be associated with iPhones. With Bushel, iPad-only apps are only associated to Apple IDs attributed to an iPad. The benefit is more streamlined app management across all your devices.
Powered by JAMF Software, Bushel is currently in use by more than 1,500 organizations, marking a 300 percent increase since its release less than two months ago. For more than 12 years, thousands of organizations worldwide have relied on technology from JAMF Software to manage Mac, iPad and iPhone within their schools and businesses, as well as keep up with new Apple operating system updates hassle-free. Bushel represents the next step in JAMF Software's commitment to making Apple device management accessible to all.
