Asset Discovery: The Critical First Step in Cybersecurity

At Lansweeper, we're celebrating Cybersecurity Month this October, as it shines the spotlight on cybersecurity trends and innovation. The goal is to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity, and ensure that all individuals and organizations have the information and tools they need to be safer and more secure online. 

Lansweeper is in lockstep with those goals, and we believe that asset discovery is the critical first step in cybersecurity -- because you can't secure what you don't know you have. A complete and accurate IT asset inventory is the fundamental starting point for implementing security measures across an organization.  

Data-Driven Protection and Peace of Mind

Businesses of all sizes in all industries leverage Lansweeper's IT asset discovery platform to discover and identify all network-connected assets -- IT, OT, and IoT. Our solution gathers in-depth information about those devices -- hardware specifications, installed software, user details, and more -- creating a complete and accurate IT asset inventory to enable rapid threat detection and more reliable prevention


Using advanced Asset Radar and Credential-free Device Recognition (CDR) technologies, Lansweeper detects assets the moment they connect to the network, without the need for credentials or complex configurations, delivering complete coverage and unmatched accuracy, and eliminating blind spots across the IT environment.

Tough on Cyber Threats, Just Like Our Partners

Lansweeper maintains a robust partner ecosystem, and our partners are as bullish on keeping their customers safe from cyber attacks as we are. Together we ensure that end customers have a strong cybersecurity strategy -- and the tools to support that strategy. 

For example, B2B Cyber Secure, a cybersecurity advisory company that provides full network 360 coverage, has been a Lansweeper partner for more than nine years and uses our platform to maintain full visibility across their customers' IT estates. In 2020, Lansweeper helped them tackle a new challenge: maintaining coverage across the extended network following the shift to remote working in the Covid-19 era

B2B Cyber Secure leverages Lansweeper's unique ability to discover any and all assets in their customers' networks and create complete inventories for building out rock-solid cybersecurity strategies. Lansweeper audits the systems and software for each device, identifying potential vulnerabilities caused by outdated software. With this information at their fingertips, B2B Cyber Secure's advisors can create detailed reports and make informed recommendations about how customers can safeguard their IT environments. Check out the full case study to learn more about the partnership.

Thanks to partnering with Lansweeper to scan and monitor their customers' increasingly distributed IT environments, B2B Cyber Secure has reduced unpatched software by 30% and decreased overall security risks by 40%.
