Great Bay Software Delivers IoT Security Enhancements

By Ken Briodagh August 28, 2017

In a recent announcement, Great Bay Software, an Internet of Things (IoT) security company, has introduced the release of its Beacon Product Suite version 5.2. With this release, Great Bay Software said it can deliver new ways for customers to leverage advanced data analytics and bolster network device security. The new release is designed to deliver enhanced data reporting, greater network infrastructure support and advanced breech detection.

Beacon's artificial intelligence expert system-based engine collects and correlates information from dozens of data sources. As a result, Beacon discovers every device – IoT, smart and unmanaged – within seconds of connecting to the network. It provides complete visibility and maintains a device database in its Warehouse of Context. Beacon includes a comprehensive library of device profiles that allows enterprises to understand exactly what the connected device is – an infusion pump, a programmable logic controller, an ATM machine, an HVAC system, or whatever the case may be.

"With Beacon Product Suite 5.2, Great Bay continues to stay ahead of the IoT security curve by delivering industry leading capabilities to our customers," said Jim Scullion, CEO, Great Bay Software. "Our strategy is to help enterprises of all sizes get ahead of the rapidly growing threat from the innate security risks of IoT devices. The Beacon Product Suite release 5.2 takes an important step in that direction."
