VMware Offers Platform to Facilitate IoT Deployment

VMware has announced the availability of the next generation of its VMware Pulse IoT Center, the company's edge infrastructure and Internet of Things (IoT) device lifecycle-management platform. VMware Pulse IoT Center 2.0 includes updated capabilities designed to provide customers with fine-grained management of the entire lifecycle of IoT/edge devices, connected sensors and applications. Device registration and on-boarding are now more secure, the company reports, making it easier for users to get started with the IoT.

VMware Pulse IoT Center is a secure, enterprise-grade edge infrastructure and IoT device-management solution for information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) organizations, as well as any IoT use case. With Pulse IoT Center, organizations can quickly get started with the IoT, automate management at scale, extend IT security standards to the edge and IoT infrastructure, and optimize the value of their IoT data.

There are numerous challenges with getting started in the IoT, the company reports. For example, securely connecting and orchestrating data originating from different device types can be difficult, with different operating systems and connection protocols often creating isolated IoT silos. These silos can prove costly and inefficient to manage, the firm notes, and can help to reinforce the gap between IT and OT organizations. VMware Pulse IoT Center 2.0 thus is designed to help solve the highly distributed, massive scale and inherent security challenges of edge and IoT systems.

These systems require that enterprises adopt a consolidated management control plane to visualize, monitor and secure different types of edge systems across multiple IoT use cases, and potentially millions of connected devices. VMware Pulse IoT Center's management control plane can support both IT and OT organizations, and can thereby help to bridge the gap between them.
