What does FileWave do?

Founded in 1992, FileWave develops and markets software deployment and configuration solutions for corporations and educational institutions. Our tools aim to improve the efficiency of IT management tasks in multi-platform environments (macOS, iOS, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android). Some customers examples are IKEA, H&M, Gruner & Jahr, Jung von Matt, Burda, Airbus, Spiegel Verlag, Penguin Random House, OtterBox, Turn Inc.,, as well as both K12 and higher-ed organizations worldwide.

The FileWave endpoint management product makes it possible to easily install *anything* on macOS, iOS, Windows, Chrome OS, and Android devices at scale, whether this is deploying configurations (profiles, certs, settings etc) to iOS devices or Apps and scripts to desktops. Our software also makes it possible to collect and query on a huge amount of information about the hardware & software installed in a geographically spread out company - and all this from one easy-to-use administrative console.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg - our solution also includes integrated tools to help in areas such as bare metal imaging, network scanning, reporting, software patch management, scripting, remote control, and much, much more.
