Use case: Achieve better asset visibility #

Effective security programs start with asset visibility. Knowing what's connected to the network is the first step to securing it. With rich details and context about an asset, security teams can make informed decisions and accelerate their response times.

Use case: Assign and track asset owners #

Asset inventory is the first step to getting context around a device. Knowing the hardware is important, but what about who owns it? More and more, knowing who is responsible for an asset is as important as knowing what an asset is. Mapping asset ownership helps organizations quickly zero in on who can help maintain, update, or deprecate an asset.

Use case: Reduce investigation times #

When a security incident occurs, the ability to act quickly is critical. The longer it takes security analysts and incident responders to detect, find, and investigate an attack, the more time intruders have to identify and steal sensitive data. Having an up-to-date cyber asset inventory accelerates response times by providing full asset details on-demand.

Use case: Uncover risky assets #

Regular security hygiene is critical for maintaining a secure network. This means identifying devices, services and configurations that put systems and information at risk, such as assets that run end-of-life OSes, allow for SMBv1, or unintentionally exposed to the public internet.

Use case: Find security coverage gaps #

Endpoint protection is critical to protect against exploits, malware, and ransomware. But finding devices that don’t have agents can be time-intensive and challenging. How can organizations uncover assets that don't have endpoint coverage? By starting with a centralized and comprehensive asset inventory, and then layering in data from their EDR solution to find the gaps.
