The biggest concern for many organizations is ensuring that all of the assets and devices they are monitoring and tracking are secure. Due to COVID-19, more employees are working remotely than ever, presenting new challenges when trying to protect company assets.
Fact: Approximately 90% of data breaches happen at the endpoint. Without a proper Asset Lifecycle Security strategy in place, securing a fleet of devices can become complex, overwhelming and ultimately very costly.
Why is it necessary to secure your devices? (Science Direct & TechTarget Network)
- Theft prevention. Although it may be devastating to have a device stolen, the data on the device is what may need the most protection.
- Broken assets. Does your organization have a device that is damaged or broken and need to recover the data on it? That’s where Asset Lifecycle Security comes in!
- Overall peace of mind. Asset Lifecycle Security’s core focus is to ensure sensitive data is never put into the wrong hands.
Imagine an employee working remotely is using an organization’s property, such as a company issued laptop. Suppose this employee quit their job or was laid off and is refusing to return the device. With a proactive Asset Lifecycle Security solution, your asset management system can take control of that device wherever it may be at any moment. It is possible to utilize your asset management tool to push messages to the device to communicate instructions for returning it, warnings should the employee refuse, or wipe the device clean without permission from the employee to access their device. This feature will help to protect an organizations most valuable asset – its data!
Asset Lifecycle Security saves organizations the headache of replacing damaged devices or retrieving sensitive data and instead allows that time and money to be spent on essential business objectives.
