It is a challenge to keep a fleet of embedded Linux edge devices secure, updated and connected.
qbee.io is a hosted device management platform that includes remote VPN access and OTA software update capabilities. It handles configuration management and device automation. In addition, it also adds device metrics and CVE security analysis and hardening. Works also on regular Linux servers.
The IoT device management platform works vendor agnostic. Just install the qbee agent package. Different Linux agent packages are available as well as YOCTO support. In other words, this allows simple OTA software updates on a large fleet of devices.
Our dynamic VPN based remote access connection works across mobile networks, NATs and firewalls without the need for a fixed IP. For instance, you can tunnel any remote port to your local device. Above all, it allows simple remote VNC access or remote secure web server access. It is very easy to access a Node-Red UI behind a firewall. The VPN can be dynamically enabled or disabled for devices or groups of devices increasing security even further.
Manage your fleet of edge devices with advanced device automation and configuration technology as well as OTA software updates. Our pull-based lightweight and secure local qbee agent constantly monitors your system. It receives state information from our backend server and autonomously enforces these on all edge devices, even if you lose communication for a while or if you insert a new spare device. Designed for industrial security.

Use cases for our embedded device management platform
qbee.io brings full server automation capabilities to embedded edge devices. This IoT software solution allows remote deployment of large fleets of devices with improved security and full automation. Get control of all your edge devices with the IoT device management platform.
Manage any LPWAN network
Manage hundreds of LoRaWAN, Zigbee, 6LoWPAN gateways or other IoT devices from different vendors to create a reliable radio coverage. Watchdog for mobile network issues.
Control your Raspberry PI from anywhere
Control multiple Raspberry Pis in remote locations. This helps you to roll out proof of concepts early into customer networks. Remote ssh access, OTA updates, package management and metrics.
Does your embedded controller run a web service?
Get secure access to web services even behind firewalls, NATs, proxies and mobile networks without fixed IP address. Configure your SCADA or Node-Red solutions as if you were sitting in front of the device.
Full server automation on embedded devices
Automation is a very common concept for server administrators. Now you can do the same on industrial embedded IoT devices or Raspberry Pis. Remote ssh access can be replaced by automation. Seamless Ansible integration.
Automate Linux and access edge devices remotely with ssh
Device automation for IoT devices is still a fairly new topic. Therefore, we help you to connect your fleet of devices to hosted qbee.io. Then you can explore the new opportunities and savings this generates. Without any software development we are the only platform that guarantees a quick time to value. In addition, it supports a diverse range of devices, both legacy and new ones. Different embedded Linux and Yocto packages are available. Just try it out with a Raspberry Pi. With our build in VPN solution we connect embedded devices even behind complex industrial network infrastructures or mobile networks. The VPN can dynamically be enabled / disabled. This allows remote ssh access on demand. Our advanced configuration management engine works fully independent of the VPN. Learn more about us here.
