Plixer has acquired Great Bay Software, a leading provider of endpoint visibility solutions that identify managed, unmanaged, and unauthorized devices across complex networks.
Great Bay Software collects, models, and maintains contextual endpoint data. The platform enables security and network operations teams to discover and profile all devices on the network in real time, determine current and historical physical network location, identify the risk of each device, monitor behavior changes, and actively respond to anomalies.
According to Gartner, “For too many years or even decades, there have been almost impermeable barriers between IT monitoring, ITSM, DevOps and SecOps. However, as digital transformation pushes I&O into a product mentality, these walls need to come down.”
The combination of the Plixer and Great Bay Software product portfolios will deliver tremendous value to network operations and security teams enabling them to gain:
- Real time and historical network and endpoint visibility, extending from layer 2-7
- Dynamic endpoint discovery, data analysis, and insights
- Behavior analysis, monitoring, and alerting across both networks and endpoints
- Automated, prioritized incident response for network and security events
