- Use Cases
IT asset management (ITAM) governs the lifecycle of an asset from deployment or initial identification, through its use, maintenance, and end of life. At the heart of ITAM is a comprehensive asset inventory, which serves as a single source of truth across multiple business units — most importantly IT operations, enabling operational efficiency, mitigating risk, and maximizing ROI.
Building and maintaining a comprehensive asset inventory is labor intensive and prone to error. A centralized, single source of truth to easily see and manage known and unknown assets is vital.
IT resources are stretched thin — IT managers struggle to manage hundreds or thousands of devices in an environment. Hybrid infrastructure further complicates asset management, hindering operational efficiency and putting assets at risk.
Service Level Agreements (SLAs) rely on operational efficiency and credible asset inventory to respond. An unreliable, out-of-date, or obsolete asset inventory status can extend response times, lengthen mean time to repair (MTTR), and compromise agreements.
From comprehensive inventories and streamlined infrastructure management, to continuous change identification, SLA support, and patch management, Axonius controls asset complexity to optimize tactical ITAM administration.
Use our credible, comprehensive, and always up-to-date asset inventory to discover assets that individual security tools miss.
A credible, comprehensive asset inventory is a single source of IT asset truth across an entire environment. The Axonius correlation engine aggregates, deduplicates, correlates, and normalizes data from point-solution security tools you already use, to identify all known assets and discover previously unknown ones. Gain confidence in your cyber asset inventory with a unified view of all your assets in one centralized location.Learn More
It takes roughly 86 person hours, on average, to generate an asset inventory, utilizing a combination of eight to 10 tools that weren’t built for the task. Axonius turns IT asset inventory audit events into a continuous, comprehensive, and near-real-time inventory by automating the process — and giving you the ability to schedule updates to suit your needs. Embracing an automated, process-based approach to IT asset inventory management for ITAM provides real-time, unified, and comprehensive asset visibility.Learn More
Axonius connects to over 400 pre-built integrations with security tools you already use. Adapters aggregate and correlate data in hours, not weeks, so you can immediately see your asset inventory as it exists now. Mean Time to Inventory (MTTI) is an emerging cybersecurity incident response metric that helps determine how long it takes a security operations center (SOC) analyst to identify the system owner or custodian.
Upon startup, Axonius quickly delivers a comprehensive asset inventory, then continuously delivers asset and user data so security teams have the information they need for investigations.
Manual audits recorded in spreadsheets create static asset inventories that are inaccurate and obsolete. Axonius delivers accuracy and removes the time-consuming burden of manual audits, allowing IT managers to reallocate resources to higher value tasks.Watch Now
Manage all assets from anywhere — on-premise, cloud, virtual, mobile, IoT — to better understand your assets and optimize operational ITAM efficiency.
Infrastructure and operations teams face greater complexity than ever before. Infrastructures now extend far beyond physical offices and on-premise data centers to include private and public cloud platforms, creating a complex, distributed ecosystem. Gain visibility and control of a mix of on-premise and private and/or public clouds for a fuller understanding of your environment.
Axonius tracks and manages servers across data centers, offices, and cloud platforms, and reliably transitions on-premise assets to data centers and clouds. Unify cloud assets across all major providers to identify misconfigurations and policy lapses with Cloud Asset Compliance.
Change is constant, and the rate of change is accelerating. IT environments are in a constant state of flux with hundreds or thousands of devices and users. Monitoring, tracking, and managing devices demands comprehensive, accurate, and automated solutions.
Axonius enables users to discover unmanaged devices, identify unauthorized devices on restricted network segments, or devices with missing or broken security agents. Trace and assess all devices in dynamic environments to uncover solution overlap and determine where to eliminate redundancies.
Comprehensive asset data is a requirement for incident response and investigations, as well as adherence to compliance policies. The ability to rely on a credible asset inventory helps teams respond faster to environmental changes, and ensures service agreements are met.
Incident response teams responsible for SLA support spend a great deal of time tracking down and resolving incidents. This is costly, not only in terms of hours spent completing the task, but also additional risk that may be posed while incidents remain unresolved.
Axonius reduces mean time to response (MTTR) by automating essential data gathering tasks and reducing the time spent conducting manual data collection and contextualization. Axonius accelerates incident response investigations that are critical to SLA performance to deliver a singular, correlated view into devices and associated users.
IT environments can experience rapid or unusual changes that could indicate trouble. Ephemeral devices that either appear intermittently or exist temporarily in a corporate environment may or may not be sanctioned. Excessive network traffic could signal unauthorized access. Both may pose security or operational challenges for those responsible for security and performance.
Axonius preempts potential problems by monitoring changes in the IT environment — like network access control (NAC) — that could impact security or performance.
Assets that fall out of compliance with an organization’s security policies or external regulations could trigger service agreement issues, either interdepartmentally within an organization or with end customers. Using our credible, comprehensive, asset inventory, Axonius uncovers device and user policy non-compliance issues and uses configurable enforcement sets to automatically correct them. Cloud Asset Compliance compares cloud configuration and asset data against industry benchmarks and frameworks to ensure conformity with industry best practices.Learn More
