Don’t let limited software visibility impact your IT and security posture. Axonius provides a credible, comprehensive inventory that identifies all your software assets in a single, unified view — on cloud, physical, or virtual devices.
Not every organization employs software management tools.
When tools are engaged, many aren’t deployed extensively across all devices and technologies, hampering accurate software inventory views. Individual tools are limited by siloed information and only discover software where their agent exists.
Optimization requires a benchmark — a credible, comprehensive, software inventory from which progress can be measured.
Without understanding what you have, it’s impossible to negotiate renewals, recapture and redistribute licenses, or anticipate when end of life or end of support applications will endanger your operations.
The inability to identify and prioritize known software vulnerabilities increases risk.
Unsanctioned (shadow) software or manual HR offboarding results in outstanding permissions, creating security gaps that are hard to identify and mitigate.
Clear, credible, and comprehensive visibility of software applications in an environment are the foundation for any management or security program. Software management helps IT, and security and risk teams, identify software across the technology estate to inform software spend and cost optimization. It identifies unwanted and unauthorized software, exposes security gaps, and reduces risk.
Axonius Software Management lets customers automatically identify and inventory software applications. It eliminates manual, intermittent software assessments that are outdated the moment they’re completed.
Set the fetch cycle to a cadence that works for you and automatically see results.
Axonius provides extensive software visibility from many sources, enabling IT and security teams to discover all known and unknown software applications in their technology estate, including on cloud, physical, or virtual devices.
Gain extensive visibility to uncover software – all without deploying another agent or configuring scans.
Individual, agent-based software management solutions are limited to only the devices on which they are deployed.
Axonius eliminates information silos by bringing together data from multiple, customer-owned security and IT management tools and data sources. It is accurate and exhaustive.
The Axonius correlation engine aggregates, normalizes, deduplicates, and correlates software data from multiple sources to deliver trustworthy accounting of the software stack.
The Axonius Software Management empowers users to identify software by vendor, title, and version.
Custom tagging enables users to categorize software applications for easier analyzing, tracking and reporting. Tag and filter by department, region, type of software, criticality - or any grouping you deem important to better manage software applications.
The proliferation of software makes it hard to stay on top of license counts and understand if spend is within or above budgets. Comprehensive software discovery, combined with device context delivers depth of visibility and accuracy that’s needed to optimize software spend or prepare for a vendor audit.
Inform software spend and renewal strategies with a comprehensive view into software applications - whether those are deployed on cloud, physical, or virtual devices.
Investigate and report on software usage by vendor, version, and application title, to be better prepared to negotiate software renewals. Understand the status of your software distribution prior to vendor audits to better manage true up costs.
Without a comprehensive view into all devices, IT teams struggle to reconcile how many licenses are in use compared to what was purchased.
Axonius enables IT teams to track which devices have certain software applications and track whenever total license counts exceed contracted amounts.
Set alerts when software is approaching end of support (EOS) or end of life (EOL) and no longer provide updates or patches, to avoid unsupported software, which can become a security risk.
Knowing when it’s time to plan for obsolescence and replacement reduces unexpected security gaps, keeps software versions safe, and assists in replacement software purchase planning.
Discovering unused software can substantially save on license purchases for a company, who can either reduce future renewals or reallocate existing licenses to others within a company.
Understanding exactly what software exists, and how it is used can help IT staff better manage licenses by recapturing and redistributing them.
Axonius Software Management uncovers unauthorized, unwanted, or suspicious software such as social media, games, or other unauthorized platforms that may reveal confidential company data. Our proven, API-driven aggregation, normalization, deduplication, and correlation process finds applications that others miss, and that may pose a security challenge.
Axonius reveals software misconfigurations, lax policies, or policies that have fallen out of compliance. These security gaps can endanger your environment.
Known software vulnerabilities, or Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVEs) endanger IT operations and business continuity. Unknown vulnerabilities, or those not reported to recognized vulnerability databases, are equally as serious.
Axonius helps understand the presence and impact of known and unknown software vulnerabilities. By correlating software data with the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), CISA Know Exploited Vulnerability (KEV) catalog, and other third-party threat intelligence, we’re able to establish the presence, importance, and urgency of known and unknown vulnerabilities alike.
The no-code, multi-level Query Wizard lets users contextualize software with device data to acquire deep insights and inform IT and security strategies. Add custom tags to identify, classify, and catalog software for easier analyzing, tracking and reporting.
Investigate and prioritize software based on unique criteria to inform decisions for how your software should be managed, prioritized, and secured. Create charts, dashboards, and reports to monitor changes. Share your findings with stakeholders who have a vested interest in identifying and securing software applications.
Use saved queries to send alerts or take other actions. Security teams can identify unwanted or unauthorized software applications appearing on unsecure devices, and notify asset owners to take action per company policies.
IT and security teams can create a ticket, issue, or incident with third-party applications to automate the initiation of remediation workflows to save time and minimize the human effort.
