It is hard enough today to protect all of an enterprise’s on-premise networked devices, personal devices that link to the network physically or over Wi-Fi, operational technology devices that traverse part of the IT network (lights, electronic doors, etc.), and off-premises devices from business partners and the internet of things. As companies migrate more compute-intensive applications and storage to the cloud, the number of off-prem assets is exploding.
So how can a company keep track of the myriad of computing devices that grow on a daily basis? It all comes down to the often boring task of IT asset management. Of course, we’re not just counting boxes and physical devices anymore.
This 20/20 webcast looks into why IT asset management has become a business imperative and how today’s IT department identifies assets not only as part ofthe overall governance, risk and compliance responsibilities, but also the far-from-mundane need of securing and protecting the corporate crown jewels, as well as private and personal information stored on the corporate network —locally and in the cloud.
