About the Company

Automox was founded to pursue a disruptive new vision: the complete automation of system configuration, patching, management and inventory. System management is a massive problem for IT organizations complicated by different operating systems, software, device types, and geographic locations.

Automox is the only cloud system management solution designed to completely automate the patching, configuration, and maintenance of Windows, OS X, and Linux systems from a single platform. Our new Dynamic Policy Engine allows IT managers to customize and group policies that ensure that every system, regardless of location, meets your regulatory and security requirements.

In the end, seeing is believing. Automox gives IT organizations instant control and full visibility into the status of every managed system – delivering radical time savings, greater security, and peace of mind right from your browser.
