Secure VPN device access and OTA software updates!

qbee remote access and device management

It is a challenge to keep a fleet of embedded Linux devices secure, updated and connected. qbee.io is a hosted SaaS enterprise device management platform that includes remote VPN access and OTA software update capabilities. It handles configuration management, package management and device automation. In addition, it adds metric monitoring and CVE security analysis. This also works on regular Linux servers or mobile units using cellular data.

The qbee IoT device management platform is vendor agnostic. Simply install the qbee agent package matching your architecture or use our Yocto support. Enable OTA software updates on large fleets of edge devices.

Our dynamic VPN based remote access connection works across mobile networks, NATs and firewalls without the need for a fixed IP. Tunnel any remote port to your local device or use qbee as VPN gateway. Above all, it allows simple remote VNC and secure ssh based remote web server access. Operate your Node-Red UI behind a firewall on any edge device. The VPN can be dynamically enabled or disabled increasing security even further or reducing data traffic.

Key Features

Manage your fleet of IoT embedded Linux devices with advanced device management and automation. Do package management as well as OTA software or user management.
The pull-based qbee agent constantly monitors your system. It receives state information from our backend server and autonomously enforces configuration on all edge devices, even during communication outages or if a new spare device is inserted. Designed for industrial security and IoT.

Use cases for our embedded device management platform

qbee.io brings server automation capabilities to embedded edge devices in a SaaS device management platform. This IoT software solution allows remote deployment of large fleets of devices with improved security, user management and full automation. Get control of all your coprporate 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 docker container support. Receive metrics data and apply policies.

Does your embedded controller
run a web service?

Get secure access to enterprise 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. Manage user and data policies.

Full server automation
for distributed systems

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 devices remotely with our enterprise VPN

Device automation for IoT devices is still a fairly new topic for most enterprises. 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 and full device management. 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 networks, corporate infrastructures or mobile networks. The VPN can dynamically be enabled / disabled saving data. It also works as VPN gateway for other devices. This allows remote ssh access on demand. Our advanced enterprise configuration management engine works fully independent of the VPN.
