Asset management enables the easy management of technical assets from one place. At any given moment, you have information available about who is using which asset, what condition the device is in and where it is located.
You can also display a summary of assets entrusted to users, a list of devices in a given department, or a list of all repairs and revisions to a specific type of asset.
When an organization has a rapidly developing environment, it becomes more difficult to keep track of company assets. Administrators may not be aware of new devices on the network, and those devices may pose a potential risk of attack. An attacker may exploit a vulnerability, get into the network and cause damage to an organization (outages of critical systems, data leakage and so on).
Asset management lets you monitor the life cycle of every device in your organization from one place. This gives you an overview of the condition of the device, who is responsible for it and where it is located.
