DOVER, NH--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - Great Bay Software Inc., the innovator of Endpoint Profiling and Discovery for Enterprise Networks, today announced that it has been certified by Q1 Labs, an IBM company and global provider of security intelligence solutions, for its Security Intelligence Partner Program. The integration of Great Bay's Beacon Endpoint Profiler™ solution leverages IBM's QRadar Security Intelligence Platform and enables more powerful correlation of security events and endpoint profiling data -- ultimately facilitating endpoint security for all network attached endpoints.
The IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform is an integrated and automated IT security solution that provides complete, 360° security intelligence across the network. QRadar will collect, analyze, report on, and store Great Bay's Beacon Endpoint Profiler data in a central, federated console.
IBM's Security Intelligence Partner Program enables its partners to:
- Remove integration bottle-necks during customer solution deployments
- Reduce time to resolution to more rapidly address customers' needs
- Simplify product integrations while deepening partnerships with solution providers
"We have completed the testing as part of the SIPP certification process which ensures interoperability between Great Bay Software's Endpoint Profiler solution and the QRadar Security Intelligence Platform," said Matt Ward, Senior Product Manager, IBM. "The information gathered by Endpoint Profiler provides QRadar with a comprehensive view of the endpoint to enable powerful analytics -- identifying specifically unauthorized and non-compliant systems that pose a security risk."
Great Bay Software's Beacon Endpoint Profiler is the reference standard for Endpoint Profiling, Network Endpoint Discovery, Rogue Detection and Identity Monitoring of enterprise endpoints. In addition, Great Bay's technology enables the rapid and successful deployment and management of 802.1X and Network Admission Control (NAC) systems. By solving critical challenges at the time of deployment and improving the operational efficiency of all endpoint security systems.
Great Bay's Beacon Endpoint Profiler and Device Sponsorship are critical components of pre-deployment discovery, deployment time risk avoidance, and ongoing operational efficiency of maintaining an authenticated system.
"Great Bay Software, Inc. is pleased to join IBM's Security Intelligence Partner Program. Our Beacon Endpoint Profiler, combined with QRadar Security Intelligence Platform, allows enterprise organizations to correlate information detected at the core of the enterprise with the details of the endpoints at the edge of the enterprise LAN," said Steve Pettit, President, Great Bay Software, Inc. "This level of data assimilation will lead to a more efficient IT and IT Security operation and reduce the risks related to rogue endpoints connecting to the network."
