Great Bay Software, Inc. Key Developments

Great Bay Software Introduces Scalability Enterprise IoT Security Platform

Great Bay Software introduced its High Capacity Server along with the version 5.1 of its Beacon product suite. Each High Capacity Server can support discovery, visibility and control for up to 1.5 million connected devices. The Beacon product suite 5.1 also includes interoperability with Dell IoT Gateways. More than 20 billion new IoT devices are expected to connect to enterprise networks over the next 5 years. Great Bay Software's solution helps enterprises protect against the growing threat posed by poor built-in security for IoT devices. The three key capabilities of an enterprise-grade discovery, visibility and control platform are scale, completeness of discovery, and accuracy of profiling. While most discovery and visibility tools max out at 10 to 20 thousand devices per server, Beacon can manage up to 1.5 million devices from a single server saving enterprises the cost and complexity associated with managing dozens if not hundreds of servers. Scalability: New High Capacity platform that can manage up to 1.5 million devices per server to support large enterprises with the growing number of connected devices. Discovery: Interoperability with Dell IoT gateway. Addition of hundreds of new device types strengthening Beacon's market leading library of pre-configured profiles. Visibility: Built-in Topology Maps that automate endpoint and network infrastructure mapping in its organization. New Search Interfaces and APIs to help speed up troubleshooting and incidence response. Control: Enhanced use of DHCP options to simplify the on boarding of contractor devices.
