Authorized device and software changes are endemic to data centers and a routine part of today’s fast track of automated processes. But when unauthorized devices, components, and software are introduced inside an enterprise network, havoc can be the next event.
ISI Snapshot/PSE scans more than just device serial numbers and the installed software to detect changes. It also captures other devices such as cameras, telephone systems, removable drives, decommissioned servers (that are still operating), and IP addresses where the serial number has changed. Any unauthorized change is cause for concern. If not confirmed to be legitimate, it can leave a company open for risk.
Cyber-security threats are increasing as quickly as businesses can implement measures against them. According to a 2013
— Polls every IP address on the network using an automated process.
— Captures both virtual and physical server information.
— Continuous surveillance detects changes that can be flagged and verified against company records.
— Easy detection of changes in software or hardware utilization, configuration, and dependencies.
— Verification that all servers have security software and are at current patch levels.
— Timely notifications of last reboots.
— Accurate log of all changes detected to aid record-keeping and audits.
— Low overhead and fast results with the capability to survey over 500 IP addresses per hour.
