Everything's better with Bacon.®
Bacon Unlimited Computer Software Desktop Preview Interface GUI Endpoint Management Monitoring Software

Bacon is a web application that adds a powerful, easy-to-use interface allowing for the complete management and monitoring of your company's endpoints.

Bacon is entirely web-based and does not require any software to be installed on an admin's machine to access it.

Central to Bacon are endpoints—servers and workstations—connected and constantly exchanging information securely with Bacon. Bacon runs background jobs to continuously collect information from its endpoints. Bacon provides many functions for endpoint management, such as patch management, package deployment, monitoring, and script execution.

Future iterations of Bacon (launching Fall 2020) will include additional features such as
an updated NOC dashboard, system profiles, and role-based access control.
