- Use Cases
Poly struggled to unite disparate data from various sources within the organization. Each contributor had their own system to collect and store information, but no one had a sweeping view into every asset, which left teams misaligned and with silos of information.
Steve Kjaer, CISO at Poly, summed it up, “As the saying goes, you can’t manage what you can’t see. If you don’t know what you have on the network, you’re not managing it—and it’s almost surely vulnerable.”
As Plantronics and Polycom came together to form Poly, there was a need to identify system and ensure they were appropriately managed, as well as consolidate platforms. This major internal shift accelerated their need for a reliable asset management tool.
As Kjaer notes, “The two companies coming together further highlighted the need for better visibility and figuring out all of what we had and how it’s managed.”
Poly conducted a proof of concept to demonstrate the value Axonius could provide.
With Axonius, Poly can easily track and manage software licenses, identify cybersecurity risks, and troubleshoot system alerts. The complete view into current network assets and key data systems helps teams track down anomalies and maintain visibility into software installations, endpoints, licensing, and more
