Manual processes for IT asset lifecycle management (ITALM) expose companies to cybersecurity risks.
To reduce the risk of cyber-attacks, IT teams require complete visibility of assets from “cradle to grave.” They need a real-time view of hardware, where it is located, who is using it, associated applications, OS versions, and how data is being handled. They need to stay on top of OS updates and patching, as well as end of support for servers and devices. Failure to update these systems leaves companies open to data breaches and ransomware attacks. For regulated industries like financial services and healthcare, these breaches can also result in multi-million-dollar fines from regulators.
Unfortunately, most companies are still applying manual processes and mountains of spreadsheets to ITALM, which significantly increases the risk of missing security vulnerabilities and mitigating risks quickly.
ReadyWorks, a digital platform conductor, integrates data from all your IT and business systems to identify security risks including missing patches, end-of-life systems, missing agents, and misconfigurations. ReadyWorks uses this information to orchestrate workflows to minimize the risk of cybersecurity attacks.
Merge data from all sources to gain a real-time view of hardware, where it is located, who is using it, associated applications, OS and software versions, configuration settings, and how data is managed.
Quickly identify vulnerable devices that require a security patch. Identify which patches need to take priority and receive immediate attention.
Identify EOL systems and automate migration and decommissioning workflows.
Confidently respond to security and compliance audits with highly accurate, validated, asset data.
Automate workflows to communicate and enforce security policies.
Identify missing devices or ones that need to be returned and automate workflows to address these devices.
Orchestrate workflows to ensure proper handling of devices that are being decommissioned and/or disposed of.
ReadyWorks Cybersecurity Threat Assessment Conductor contains all the integrations, analytics, tools, & workflows required to orchestrate IT asset lifecycle management processes:
