Episode 3: Instant Insight into 40.000 Assets

At the WannaCry episode in May 2017, we really understood the product value of Lansweeper. Just like infectious diseases spread, the WannaCry worm spread across networks. Lansweeper immediately published a WannaCry report for detecting machine objects that were potentially vulnerable.

As a Technical Lead, I am responsible for managing all the devices in my company. In order to deliver IT services for a large number of companies on more than 1600 locations, I am dependent upon software tools that are scalable, dependable and integrable.

Lansweeper is the main tool for gathering information and forms the basis of basically all our internal systems. Lansweeper gives us transparency and full control in real time, with automatic reporting so we can identify risk, vulnerabilities and non-compliance issues before they become a problem.

We have integrated Lansweeper with our support system. When a user calls in to support, the user and computer information is automatically shown to the operator providing valuable information fast. We also provide a portal for our customers so they can manage their own users and computers where a lot of the information actually comes from Lansweeper.

Lansweeper is fully integrated with Intility’s service offering and provides instant insight on the device inventory for our 40.000 assets and 30.000 end users, allowing us to provide the level of support and upgrade advisory on hardware, operating systems, and applications.

I can`t live without it, and would highly recommend trying out Lansweeper!
