- Use Cases
Like other databases that support an enterprise’s awareness of the assets in their inventory (and their associated potential cybersecurity risks), there are key things to think about when selecting an IT asset management platform provider.
Ideally, it should have automation that provides real-time tracking and monitoring of IT assets. This is important in the event of a cyber attack. If the team has to update or maintain the asset management database manually, it’s always likely to be erroneous or out of date.
An IT asset management platform should include IT assets, IoT devices, mobile devices, and cloud assets, not just the on-premises hardware. A comprehensive view is critical for cybersecurity.
There should also be robust reporting. Not just around lifecycle management, but also patch management, integrations, and alerts.
