Cybersecurity Asset Management

Why asset management is foundational to cybersecurity

August 31, 2021
  1. Asset inventory: Getting a complete inventory of all hardware, software, and network assets 
  1. License management: Ensuring all assets are running properly licensed software 
  1. Lifecycle management: Deciding which assets should be decommissioned, managing the software licenses on these assets, and updating the inventory 
  • Endpoint protection: Helps detect assets missing an endpoint agent, or identify those that have the right agent installed, but where the agent isn’t working. 
  • Vulnerability management: Helps uncover assets not being scanned by a vulnerability assessment tool. 
  • Cloud security: Helps find misconfigured cloud instances and those not being scanned for vulnerabilities or not adhering to industry benchmarks (like CIS Foundations Benchmarks). 
  • Incident response: Uses enriched, correlated data on assets from different data sources to expedite incident response and remediation. 
  • Continuous Controls Monitoring: Helps automatically identify assets that stop adhering to your overall security policy. 
  • Security policy enforcement: Helps automatically address assets that don’t adhere to security policies.
