Robust new offerings of award-winning Lighthouse software give enterprises full visibility and future-proof management capabilities across entire networks.

Opengear has unveiled Lighthouse Enterprise: Automation Edition, the first out-of-band management software solution to include automation capabilities and secure provisioning.

Part of a robust, new tier of product offerings, the Lighthouse Enterprise platform has evolved to give enterprise users full visibility and future-proof management capabilities across entire networks.

“We’re committed to offering industry-first, automation capabilities that provide customers with always-on access to their networks,” said David Fiore, Senior Software Product Manager for Opengear. “With a focus on modern automation technology and features such as Secure Provisioning and Automation Gateway, Lighthouse Enterprise: Automation Edition has evolved to provide greater value. Now, customers can effortlessly browse resources on their remote management network without any additional software.”

As businesses deploy more edge devices and increase their reliance on network automation, secure out-of-band management and alternative access are more important than ever. To ensure always-on network connectivity and business continuity, Lighthouse Enterprise and Lighthouse Enterprise: Automation Edition deliver high availability at scale to even the largest organisations.
