What is IT Asset Discovery?
Gain 100% Visibility of Your IT Estate
Why Do You Need IT Asset Discovery?
In our era of rapid digital expansion, where a company's IT assets are no longer reserved to on-premise infrastructure but also digital environments like the Cloud, keeping track of devices is downright impossible without accurate IT asset discovery. IT Asset discovery gives you a much-needed overview of all assets connected to your network and helps you manage them remotely. Also, IT asset discovery software automates a lot of manual work, which saves you valuable time. Additionally, it can improve your network's security significantly as it can be used to set up a continuous watch over you network to detect threats like rogue devices or to perform deep scans to find hidden vulnerabilities.

Inventory Your Network with Lansweeper's Agentless Asset Discovery
You can easily create a complete and up-to-date overview of your entire IT network with Lansweeper. Automatically scan Windows, Linux, and Mac devices across your network. Find and organize printers, routers, switches, and track assets not yet deployed or even disconnected from your network. You can also discover SNMP-enabled devices on your network. All their data is collected automatically and can be consulted at any time in a visual dashboard or drilled down into useful network reports. Our software is also agentless, meaning you do not have to install it on every device you wish to scan. Creating and managing a complete inventory of your entire IT estate was never easier.
Instantly Detect Assets the Moment They Connect to Your Network
Lansweeper is capable of detecting assets the moment they connect to your network by using its Asset Radar feature. This not only guarantees completeness of your inventory, it also eliminates any possible blind spots it might have. Rogue devices are instantly discovered, no matter how brief the connection. This is a must-have for your cybersecurity. Combined with our advanced, AI-powered Credential-free Device Recognition technology that can recognize and identify any asset, you have unmatched inventory accuracy across your entire IT estate -- IT, OT, and IoT. Credential-free device recognition allows Lansweeper to determine the asset type of certain devices more accurately, and to add additional information that could previously not be retrieved without credentials.
Configure Lansweeper's IT Asset Discovery to Suit Your Needs
Configure your IT asset discovery to match your needs: scan your network by IP range, set critical servers to be scanned, or use active scanning and integrate Active Directory to continuously keep your inventory up to date. Combined with our reporting feature, you can further customize your IT asset discovery to get only the data you need at any given time. You can browse our built-in report library with over 500 different reports, or you can create custom reports. You can even share your discovery reports with others.
