BiitOps DataEngine exposes data through a high performance REST API, allowing you to use BiitOps Insight Dashboards and at the same time pull the same data into your own solutions, such as PowerShell automations and ITSM software.


Technical
overview

The solution consists of 3 elements:

1) A BiitOps DataEngine Instance responsible for collecting, comparing and storing data
2) A BiitOps DataEngine Collection Agent installed on all clients and servers
3) A REST API exposing data in JSON or Tabular formats to BiitOps Insights or third-party solutions.

The BiitOps DataEngine, can be installed on any Windows Server version currently supported by Microsoft, and requires a Microsoft SQL database running standard or Enterprise edition.

The BiitOps DataEngine Collection Agent runs as a Windows Service on any Windows Server or Client currently supported by Microsoft. Data collection is automatically scheduled and controlled centrally by the DataEngine Instance, and the Collection Agent runs as a self-maintaining solution, with manual maintenance required. 

The BiitOps REST API is build on Swagger Platform, ensure high performance for data access.


Security
overview

Security is a key pillar in the Architecture of the BiitOps solution infrastructure.

  • Data is encrypted by the Data Collection Agent when collected on servers
  • All communication between the BiitOps DataEngine Collection Agent and the BiitOps DataEngine Instance is encrypted.
  • Communication between BiitOps DataEngine Collection Agent and the BiitOps DataEngine Instance is always initiated by the agent.
  • Data remains encrypted while stored within the BiitOps DataEngine Instance, and is only decrypted during access through the REST API

In other words, BiitOps DataEngine is developed with security as an absolute priority, and data is always encrypted in both transit and at rest.
