Testimonials

Atomic updates with built-in rollback is a key requirement. We need to make sure our devices continue to work with automated rollback if the update didn't take for any reason. Mender provided that crucial capability.

Joel Hermanns, CIO of gridX

High quality

Avoid bricked devices

Automated rollback support so your devices will always come back online, even in cases of power loss or data corruption while the update is being deployed.

Security

Built from the ground up with security in mind, Mender enforces secure HTTPS connections and has zero open ports on the embedded device.

No vendor lock-in

Mender is the only end-to-end OTA tool with both the server and client open source (Apache 2.0), giving you flexibility and freedom.
