Protecting Your Company Through Asset Discovery - Pareto Cyber

Info

Protecting Your Company Through Asset Discovery and Management:

Network security begins with IT Asset Discovery Tools – the process by which an organization keeps track of all authorized and unauthorized devices and software connected to the company network.

After asset discovery, IT can implement asset management, including tracking and correcting authorized devices and software. They can also deny access to unauthorized and unmanaged accounts, as well as prevent unapproved software from being installed on network devices.

Asset discovery and management are important preventative measures for cybersecurity, leading to decreased costs, decreased risk, and increased business performance.

So why doesn’t every company have a robust asset management program:

In short, because it requires priority, budget, and process.

Asset Management – Barriers to Implementation:

Asset management is often time-consuming and difficult. All too frequently, there is no true, accurate account of assets connected to the network, making asset management arduous and leaving an organization open to attack.

IT organizations struggle with asset management for the following reasons:

Priority: Asset management is not sexy, fun, or easy to do in a large, distributed environment. Organizations typically start off with a project that identifies all (or most) assets at a given point in time but then lose sight of the overall objective and shift resources to support other business priorities. Without continued focus and prioritization of asset management from leadership, the program will ultimately fail.

Budget: IT teams are focused on enabling an ever-changing business and ensuring 99.999% up-time for all systems. As a result, budgets are primarily geared toward operations and capital projects rather than towards asset management.

Process: While most organizations have asset management policies and procedures in place, there is a lack of follow-through of the program due to competing priorities and budgets. Without a strong process, the ability to be effective with asset management becomes increasingly difficult.

The order of these key reasons is important because each one is interconnected in determining success. As always, the impact of “Tone at The Top” will be the ultimate driving factor in the success or failure of a given project.
