Overview

Complete, unobstructed visibility of your IT environment is the foundation for effective cybersecurity. Without a full, detailed inventory of all your IT assets, your InfoSec team won’t be able to properly protect your organization because the things that pose the highest risk are the ones that you don’t know are there.

For a long time, this basic requirement was fairly simple to fulfill. Network perimeters were well-defined and IT environments were tightly encapsulated. Accounting for and monitoring all the hardware, software and networking elements in these self-contained and sealed IT environments was straightforward.
