Zingbox, the provider of the most widely deployed Internet of Things (IoT) lifecycle management solution, announced the availability of Zingbox IoT Command Center. Powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning technology, Zingbox IoT Command Center is the first solution of its kind encompassing the discovery and security of IoT devices as well as the management and optimization of the entire IoT lifecycle.
“As a leader in the IoT security and analytics market, we always strive to bring much needed innovation and capabilities to the industry,” said Xu Zou, CEO and co-founder of Zingbox. “By continuously building on our market leadership and enhancing our proven technology, we are the first and only solution provider to bring a comprehensive IoT lifecycle management solution to market.”
Organizations have struggled to apply traditionally accepted IT best practices to IoT devices. Fragmented efforts are gradually being made to address the inventory and security of IoT, but most of these programs lack the comprehensive lifecycle management that automates all aspects of IoT – including onboarding, provisioning, security, management, optimization and retirement.
Zingbox IoT Command Center is different from those solutions and unique in the marketplace. It consists of industry-proven products – including IoT Guardian Discovery, IoT Guardian Security and IoT Guardian Vigil – for the discovery, security and management of IoT devices. Additionally, the solution includes the new IoT Guardian Insights, which provides real-time operational metrics such as device utilization, enabling organizations to reduce downtime, increase revenue and enable efficient capital planning.
“The ability to efficiently manage and optimize IoT devices is a critical need for most organizations – whether they realize it or not,” said Heidi Horn, healthcare technology executive. “Identifying and securing IoT devices are necessary first steps. But having the means to know which devices are being used, how frequently they are used, when they are in use and what they are being used for – through a real-time, vendor-agnostic process – is the holy grail for any organization wanting to optimize its investment in networked devices and reduce its costs.”
Nathan Brauer, director of clinical engineering technology and equipment distribution service at Cape Fear Valley Health System, said “Ensuring the uninterrupted service of medical devices is my highest priority. Whether an interruption stems from cyberattacks or high device utilization, real-time comprehensive views of our device fleet is required. My team and I use Zingbox IoT Guardian every day to manage multi-vendor connected medical devices and help our health system drive business efficiency.”
