Lappeenranta, Finland – 27 September, 2012 – Today Miradore introduced a new version of its Miradore Configuration Management solution. The new version supports management of computers running on Microsoft Windows 8 and Server 2012 operating systems and it also enables logging of changes in managed devices’ software and hardware inventory information. In addition, the solution’s user interface components have been developed to support double-byte character set (DBCS) in which all characters are encoded using two bytes. This makes it possible to use national languages that contain a large amount of unique characters (e.g. Chinese, Korean, and Japanese) in Miradore.
The new features and improvements in Miradore Configuration Management 3.4.1 are shortly summarized below.
Windows 8 & Windows Server 2012 support
Starting from Miradore Configuration Management 3.4.1, computers running Windows 8 or 2012 Server can be managed with Miradore using Miradore Windows client version 3.2.0. The Windows 8 or 2012 Server computers cannot be managed with older versions of Miradore client for Windows. The new version of Miradore Windows client will be included in the Miradore Configuration Management installer and made available for registered customers as a separate download at Miradore Support & Downloads portal.
Hardware & Software change logging
Miradore collects a log about changes in devices’ hardware and software inventory. The changes are listed in Hardware inventory change log and Software inventory change log reports and also on the inventory report tab of related asset configuration item(s). Also some mobile device configurations are included.
Double-byte character support
Miradore’s user interface components have been developed to support double-byte character set (DBCS), in which all characters are encoded in two bytes. As a result, it is possible to use national languages that contain a large amount of unique characters (e.g. Japanese, Korean, and Chinese) in Miradore.
Rule based access management for Exchange ActiveSync devices
Administrator(s) can manage ActiveSync devices access to Exchange server using the access rules that are located at the system settings of Miradore. There it is possible to use the organisation access level setting to determine whether the devices are allowed to access to Exchange server by default, and then on the other hand, define more accurate access rules for different scenarios (e.g. different rules for different device platforms).
Roaming configuration for iOS based devices
With the data roaming settings administrators are able to define whether iOS based devices are allowed to use data connections while roaming outside of regular carrier’s network and other local carrier network(s) are available.
Inventory data filters for mobile devices
Inventory data filters can be used to disable collection of unauthorized or unnecessary data (e.g. information that is related to user’s location, like cell ID) from managed mobile devices. The data filter settings can be found from the system settings of Miradore.
20+ minor improvements
30+ bug fixes
All improvements and bug fixes are described in more detail in Miradore Configuration Management 3.4.1 Release Notes.
The new version of Miradore Configuration Management is available for download at Miradore Support & Downloads portal.
