Hewlett Packard Enterprise on Wednesday announced several software and hardware products to more securely manage the exploding universe of Internet of Things devices.

October’s Mirai botnet attack on unsecured IoT devices, which halted widespread access to dozens of popular internet sites, dramatizes the value of more comprehensive management and control of IoT, HPE executives said in interviews.

Some of HPE’s new products are intended for use by virtual cellular network providers, while others are for small and medium-sized enterprises to use in managing their local area network (LAN) operations.

The new HPE Mobile Virtual Network Enabler software will help virtual network operators, which resell IoT connectivity, with their network provisioning, configuration, administration and billing services.
