Great Bay Software Launches New Network Intelligence Platform to Provide Unmatched Visibility into IoT & Medical Devices on Hospital Networks

Delivers device discovery, profiling and behavior analytics to address the ever-growing security and operational challenges of healthcare providers.

MINNEAPOLIS, April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Bay Software, a leader in Internet of Things (IoT) security and operational efficiency, today announced the launch of its new platform to deliver unmatched visibility into IoT and medical devices on hospital networks. Building upon its twelve-year history of providing network visibility to enterprise customers, including the Fortune 500, Great Bay Software releases its sixth-generation product to address the security and operational challenges associated with IoT adoption.

Among those challenges is the lack of visibility into managed and unmanaged devices on the network—limiting IT and Security's ability to determine device identity and connectivity, where they are located and how they are behaving. "Now more than ever, as an increasing number of IoT and medical devices are no longer associated with a single user and cannot be managed by traditional security software, organizations are struggling to establish device trust and prevent unauthorized devices from gaining network access. For healthcare providers, this lack of visibility and control exposes them to cyberattacks that could jeopardize patient safety and continuity of care," said Dino Balafas, VP of Product Management at Great Bay Software.

These new device types also create operational challenges that drain efficiency and hurt a hospital's bottom line. Without the ability to automatically inventory the number and types of devices connected to the network, healthcare providers are overspending by purchasing unnecessary devices and are being charged by third-party management vendors for medical devices they do not actually own. In response, hospitals are dedicating as many as three Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) to the process of manually inventorying assets. These challenges are intensified during hospital mergers and acquisitions, when healthcare providers must inventory and onboard newly acquired devices within a short timeframe.

"We've been working closely with leading hospital systems to understand the unique challenges they are experiencing from their connected medical devices," said Jim Scullion, CEO of Great Bay Software. "There's incredible urgency to address these issues quickly in order to ensure continuity of patient care, the privacy of patient information and the reputation of the organization. We are excited to partner with healthcare organizations to deliver real-time visibility, monitoring and behavior analytics capabilities they need to secure data, preserve customer trust and achieve the full revenue potential of their IoT adoption."

In response to these security and operational challenges, the sixth-generation of the Great Bay Software product delivers critical IoT visibility and enforcement functionality, including:

  • Real-time ability to discover, profile and locate all managed, unmanaged, authorized and unauthorized devices connected to wired and wireless networks
  • Unmatched data collection techniques to gather identity and behavioral attributes and use that contextual insight to establish and validate device trust
  • Expanded pre-built device profiles and enhanced profile import and export capabilities that enable organizations to identify and profile connected devices to the network, automatically and in real time
  • Implementation of an industry-leading artificial intelligence and machine learning engine to provide advanced real-time behavior analytics for all connected devices
  • Simple, "drag-and-drop" file functionality that is user-friendly, allows for generic data import and enables seamless bi-directional data sharing between Great Bay and other IT and security ecosystem technologies
  • Customized dashboard with expanded set of executive reporting capabilities
  • Expanded network infrastructure and support for data collection sources

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
