High-performance commercial models feature ASUS Business Suite 2.0 system management and a tool-less design for easy upgrades
ASUS today announced the BM1 and BP1 commercial desktop PCs with the latest 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors and integrated Intel® HD Graphics 4600 graphics. Both PCs feature the ASUS Business Suite 2.0 one-stop system management tool, while the BM1AE and BP1AE variants offer Intel® vPro™ technology for advanced remote management for larger businesses. Both the BM1 and BP1 also feature tool-less designs for easy upgrades and maintenance.
ASUS Business Suite 2.0 and Intel® vPro™ technology
Both the ASUS BM1 and BP1 commercial desktop PCs feature the ASUS Business Suite 2.0 utility that makes it easy for IT administrators to manage and update PCs with the minimum of fuss. Based on ASUS-designed utilities and Intel® Small Business Advantage (SBA) platform, ASUS Business Suite 2.0 is a combination of software designed for small businesses without a managed network. ASUS Easy Update II keeps BIOS and drivers up-to-date, USB Blocker provides unauthorized data acquisition and transfers, and Secure Delete for irrecoverable data deletion. ASUS Business Suite 2.0 also features the exclusive ASUS Energy Processing Unit (EPU) for optimized energy efficiency.
The latest version of Intel® vPro™ technology, found in BM1AE and BP1AE, provides greater protection and management for larger enterprises. It gives IT administrators more flexible remote data management options, and saves on the cost of acquiring similar software and onsite maintenance.
Flexible display options and an easy access chassis
ASUS BM1 and BP1 desktop PCs have VGA, DVI-I and two DisplayPort video outputs. A combination of two DisplayPort and either VGA or DVI-I outputs support up to three displays without the need for an additional graphics card, making both models ideal for use as multi-display workstations. The tool-less access chassis and modular internal design provide easy upgrade and maintenance options, while optional serial and parallel ports provide legacy support for a wide range of business peripherals like dot-matrix printers and barcode readers.
Top-notch data protection with ASUS AI Security and TPM
Both the ASUS BM1 and BP1 desktops feature top-notch security features for users. ASUS AI Security protects data from unauthorized access and virus attacks by restricting user access to selected data and files, and by disabling the ability to save data to external storage devices and optical drives. Both PCs also feature an onboard Trusted Platform Module* for secure management of encrypted data and hardware authentication. For physical security, both desktops feature a Kensington lock and padlock slot, as well as a Chassis Intrusion Alert.
