We live in a digital-first world, and in addition to the many benefits of digital transformation, there is a worrisome downside: increased cybersecurity risk. 

Fueled by increasing sophistication of cyberattacks, a growing reliance on digital technologies and the expanding footprint of IT assets across cloud, on-premises and hybrid environments, data breaches rose 20% from 2022 to 2023, and data compromises resulting from supply chain attacks shot up by 78%. Cybercriminals exploit vulnerabilities in software, hardware and human elements, targeting everything from financial data to intellectual property. The transition to remote work has further expanded the attack surfaces, making it easier for criminals to find weak points in security defenses.

Against this backdrop, having complete visibility into IT assets becomes crucial for any organization aiming to fortify its cybersecurity posture. This visibility means knowing precisely what devices are connected to your network, what software is running and whether your security controls are doing their job. In the battle against cyber threats, knowledge of your digital environment is your first line of defense, making comprehensive asset visibility not just important, but indispensable. 

To that end, Lansweeper has partnered with London-based ThreatAware to create a seamless integration that enables customers to access Lansweeper data right from the ThreatAware dashboard, to help ensure every device is discovered, visible and protected.

Cybersecurity Insights In Real Time

ThreatAware offers a comprehensive solution for companies grappling with cybersecurity in the era of cloud software and remote work. A distinguishing feature is its Timeline Matching technology, which enables the platform to provide a complete, accurate and non-duplicated asset inventory in real-time. It also provides immediate insights into the proper deployment, functionality and health of deployed security tools and controls.

ThreatAware leverages deep-level field data aggregation from multiple systems – including Lansweeper – into a single view and monitors the status and health of cybersecurity tools such as antivirus software, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems via an API connection across all discovered assets. Customers receive real-time alerts and notifications for issues such as outdated security software, unpatched vulnerabilities or deviations from established security policies. 

ThreatAware users can filter and view devices based on various criteria, such as device type, security status, location or compliance with specific security standards, and quickly home in on devices that require immediate attention. Ultimately, this helps to streamline troubleshooting and improve the organization’s cybersecurity posture.

“Through the integration with Lansweeper, we can leverage all the fantastic information that Lansweeper provides about the network connected assets and software it discovers,” said Jon Abbott, Co-founder and CEO at ThreatAware. “Lansweeper helps us find every single device that’s accessing corporate data, so we can instantly validate that all of the deployed security controls are functioning and healthy across all of those devices.” 

According to Abbott, ThreatAware updates and validates this day on an hourly basis, so customers can ensure that they’re maximizing the value of their cybersecurity investments.

A Match Made in Cyberspace

Lansweeper is renowned for its comprehensive and detailed approach to IT asset discovery and inventory. As such, ThreatAware customers who take advantage of this integration will have deeper visibility into the hardware and software across their IT estate.

With its advanced scanning capabilities, Lansweeper digs deep into the network to uncover every piece of hardware, software and user information, collecting a wide array of data points for each asset – hardware specifications, software installations, operating system details, firmware versions and network configurations. It also offers information on software usage patterns and hardware performance metrics, as well as details on software licenses such as license types, expiration dates and compliance status. This information is meticulously cataloged and updated in real-time, ensuring that IT managers have up-to-the-minute data at their fingertips. 

Since ThreatAware combines data from Lansweeper and multiple other sources, Lansweeper customers can benefit from broader visibility and a single source of truth for various types of IT data as it relates to cybersecurity and the status and health of their security controls, all from a single dashboard. 

“We often find that about 30% of a company’s security controls are not functioning properly or are misconfigured,” Abbott said. “The level of detail Lansweeper delivers about those unprotected devices is just staggering, and having access to it within ThreatAware helps customers close any security gaps to significantly reduce risk.”

Lansweeper’s integration with ThreatAware is just one of the many ways the Lansweeper platform fits seamlessly into your existing technology stack. Learn more about our available integrations here.
