Across all industries and market sectors, cyber threats are increasing exponentially – and your business is looking to you to prevent an attack. Your main responsibility is to safeguard your IT infrastructure against malicious activity and respond to incidents quickly and efficiently. If an attack gets through, it’s your job to mitigate the impact before too much damage occurs.
Your ability to anticipate and intercept potential cybersecurity attacks is paramount. This requires enforcing best practices and IT policies consistently and thoroughly, so you can prove compliance in case of an audit or data breach. It’s a tall order, and since you can’t protect what you don’t know you have, maintaining an always accurate IT asset inventory is a top priority.
Lansweeper tells us exactly how many devices are still potentially vulnerable, so we can focus our efforts and eliminate that risk for our clients.
Lansweeper delivers detailed information about a security incident in minutes, providing incredible time savings and helping us to minimize or eliminate potential damage.
The pressure is higher than the effort for you to enforce IT processes and best practices for ensuring stability, continuity, and productivity – but you’re short-staffed, and highly skilled security professionals are expensive and hard to come by. To make matters worse, you’re saddled with legacy infrastructure that takes a lot of time and resources to maintain and that are error-prone and incomplete.
While you can access multiple security tools, achieving a consolidated view of the IT infrastructure is a pipedream. Forgotten or missed assets may run outdated software, drivers, or even malware, creating security vulnerabilities that can compromise your data and infrastructure and lead to huge financial losses. How do you get it all under control?
The first step to safeguarding your business is creating a complete and accurate asset inventory that provides full visibility across the technology estate. Lansweeper continually scans your network and consolidates all IT asset data into a single source of truth that becomes a baseline for IT security. Lansweeper detects and recognizes every asset – even rogue devices that only touch your network briefly or operate behind the firewall – eliminating blind spots across your IT environment.
With Lansweeper, we can gather data very quickly and know how to focus our efforts. From an incident response perspective, it helps us reduce the time it takes to respond to incidents so we can contain them faster. Risk is reduced because we are faster and more effective at resolving issues — and that’s invaluable.
The CIS Critical Security Controls provide a framework for rock-solid security across your IT infrastructure — and the first two controls call for an Inventory of Hardware Software Assets. To satisfy the first control, Lansweeper continuously detects network-connected hardware assets and reports on any changes or newly discovered devices, including workstations, servers, network devices, IoT devices, mobile devices, cloud assets and more.
When every second counts, having all the information you need at your fingertips empowers you to act quickly and resolve a security event before damage occurs. But alerts typically come with minimal information – a MAC or IP address won’t arm you with the data you need to protect your organization. Lansweeper integrates seamlessly with leading SIEM and SOAR tools, including Splunk ES, Palo Alto Cortex XSOAR, IBM QRadar, MSFT Sentinel, Splunk SOAR, and more, significantly reducing deployment times and minimizing the need for customization.
The attack surface encompasses all points of entry that can serve as attack vectors for unauthorized users to gain access to a system for malicious reasons. Cyber Asset Attack Surface Management (CAASM) helps to identify all potentially vulnerable assets before an attacker gets in. Detecting and preventing attacks won’t be possible without complete and accurate technology asset data. Learn how Lansweeper enables CAASM by providing visibility and actionable insights across your Technology Estate in this whitepaper.
