IT Asset Management: Be aware of the blind spots

Many organisations do not have an overview of nodes and software on the network and do not actively scan and remove unauthorised devices. This leaves security blind spots and vulnerabilities.

Challenges

Do you know which devices is on your network? Do you have an overview of the software running?

IT Asset Management (ITAM) involves the discovery, addition, removal and mitigation by blocking unauthorised nodes from the network and managing software assets. In times where devices come and go off the enterprise’s network, such as laptops or Bring-Your-Own-Devices (BYOD), it is important to have an updated inventory of assets. It also encompasses devices such as IoT and mobile devices. Likewise, as the software landscape becomes more complex, balancing between user autonomy and security and knowing what software is installed, are important factors – both from a security perspective but also to comply with license terms agreed to by the organisation.

We have extensive experience in consulting and implementing how to secure and streamline IT operations to harden the defence against cyber threats. We help our clients to determine and implement the right controls, processes and tools to increase cybersecurity within the organisation.
