Business Challenge
Manage & Protect Devices

Managing and protecting your devices. Keep them up-to-date and secure.

Business Challenge:

Billions of devices are connected to the IoT. If your business is growing, the number of devices you are shipping to customers is growing exponentially. Manual processes will break. Rely on automation to keep devices up to date and secure.


Many of your devices will be running on open source software like Linux or use other open source components. Track and manage any open source vulnerability affecting these devices automatically so you can mitigate the risk.

We’ll make you the hero to your customers. Keep devices up to date and send alerts when new updates or security patches are available. Distribute software and firmware updates and patches electronically. Run autonomous updates to keep your customers secure or ask for user interaction so customers stay in control. All up to you. You are set for a great user experience and more security. See exactly which software is running on which device, when it has been updated and how it is being used. Track and trace updates so you are in compliance with industry regulations.

Flexera also adds more agility to your business. Switch device features on and off automatically and change capacity based on customer use right. That drives down the cost for hardware products because you can consolidate many product lines into one and differentiate through features.

How it Works:

Our software monetization platform lets you know what software is running on which device; know which customer is using which device; securely activate devices for eligible customers and automate software and firmware updates.

We’ll also track and manage open source and third-party components, stop license compliance issues and manage and mitigate software vulnerabilities.
