The need for a management strategy is paramount due to data explosion in today’s landscapes. Devices are being purchased, issued and leaving the network never to be seen again. Software licensing is unknown which puts pressure on the business financial plans. With small IT staff companies are normalizing a reactive approach to endpoint management. To respond to this we encourage companies to discover their network to find what, who, why and where IOT lives in the network. Once we have achieved total inventory of configuration items we can start to track and meter licensing metrics. Knowing your licensing status will lead to a more effective efficiency plan to spot areas of surplus, or preparation for audits. Take control of your network with confidence with up to date reporting.
