    AXONIUS FOR IT ASSET MANAGEMENT

    Traditional IT asset management means conflicting data sources, manual processes, and missing asset context. Axonius eliminates those speed bumps by connecting to all the IT and security technologies you already have deployed. Once connected, Axonius automatically collects environmental data to provide a single source of truth for your asset environment.

    Full Asset Visibility

    IT and security teams have no shortage of data at their disposal. But getting to a single source of truth is a challenge. Axonius eliminates asset management complexity by automatically aggregating and correlating disparate data sources, ensuring that no asset remains unseen.

    Increase Accuracy — Easily

    Axonius eliminates the need for manual spreadsheets that can’t keep pace with today’s technology. The Axonius Platform ensures asset data is always up to date and accurate. Custom dashboards and reports give users the data they need in a way that makes sense for them. The Axonius Asset Graph makes it easy to identify asset relationships and dependencies to stop operational issues before they happen.

    Improved Decision Making

    Make better decisions about your deployed assets based on highly accurate and enriched data. Axonius has a unique perspective of your networks — from every angle. Axonius aggregates data from more than 800 data sources then adds enrichment from credible third-party solutions.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What is an IT Asset?

    An IT asset is any company-owned hardware, system, or information that is used by an organization in the course of its business operations and activities.

    What is IT Asset Management (ITAM)?

    IT asset management (ITAM) is a system of business practices that ensures an organization’s IT assets are accounted for and maintained throughout their lifecycle. This includes planning, acquisition, deployment, maintenance, upgrading, and disposal of IT assets.

    The biggest focus of ITAM is to strategically tackle and manage financial, licensing, and contractual aspects of IT assets. Effective ITAM can help maximize the value of technology investments, inform IT architecture, spend, and sourcing.

    Key aspects of ITAM programs include:

    • Hardware asset management: managing and optimizing company devices (workstations, laptops, servers, peripherals, and more)
    • Software asset management: managing and optimizing the purchase, deployment, maintenance, utilization, and ultimately removal of all company owned software
    • Licensing and compliance: ensuring that the licensing of hardware and software assets don’t introduce risk and comply with company policies

    With the rise of cloud computing, and the adoption of SaaS platforms, it’s harder than ever before to account for — and manage — all hardware and software assets.

    Why is IT Asset Management (ITAM) important?

    Unmanaged or improperly managed IT assets increase cybersecurity vulnerabilities.  ITAM helps control these vulnerabilities, and can also help identify failure points in a network.  IT asset management improves performance, by tracking and removing obsolete assets and disposing of them in a way that ensures data security.  Newly acquired assets are tracked and accounted for using ITAM.  In some cases ITAM can be required for regulatory compliance.

    What are the benefits of ITAM?

    There are several benefits to an organization that has good IT asset management, including:

    • Improved IT service delivery: IT asset visibility provides a complete view of all assets and their configuration, allowing IT staff to proactively monitor, manage, and maintain those assets to ensure they’re up-to-date and functioning properly. This ultimately improves IT service delivery.
    • Enhanced data security: By monitoring and tracking all IT assets, organizations can detect any unauthorized access or malicious activity. This allows them to quickly identify and address any potential security risks, which is essential for keeping sensitive data safe.
    • Improved regulatory compliance: With IT asset visibility, organizations can ensure they’re compliant with industry regulations and standards. This is because they can keep track of their assets and make sure they are properly configured and securely deployed.
    • Enhanced cost savings: By tracking IT assets, organizations can identify any areas where they can reduce costs, such as unused or underutilized assets. This can help them maximize their resources and save money.
    • Increased productivity: With complete visibility into IT assets, staff can quickly identify and resolve any performance issues. This improves employee productivity and efficiency.

    What is an IT Asset Management Platform?

    An IT asset management platform is a software application intended to help automate the storage and collection of data around a business’s IT assets. Automating the discovery, recording, and capture of critical information around IT assets is a key component of being able to gather a comprehensive, always up-to-date inventory — and ensure that all assets remain secure.

    What are important features to look for in an IT Asset Management Platform?

    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.
