Syxsense Launches IoT Device Management
New feature provides a centralized IT management solution to track IoT devices.
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (February 27, 2018) – Verismic, a global leader in cloud-based IT management technology, has released a new Syxsense version featuring a centralized solution to track IoT devices. This new feature is a proactive solution that dynamically indicates what IoT devices have been added to your network. IoT devices automatically appear in the console the first time Syxsense is opened.
Thousands of different IoT devices already permeate corporate infrastructures. Currently, IT departments may not have insight into what those devices are. If the IT department is only managing your laptops, desktops, and servers, it is not enough. Anything with an IP address, from a phone to the office coffee machine, has the potential to connect to the same infrastructure as servers.
“Our IoT Device Management feature will solve the problem of visibility into the major vulnerabilities IoT devices present. You may be shocked to see the number of devices already connected to your network,” commented Ashley Leonard, CEO for Verismic Software. “Over time, your Syxsense archive data becomes progressively more meaningful as you see the number of managed devices rise.”
“Suppose for security reasons you run your corporate servers and workstations with no access to the internet,” said Diane Roger, Chief Product Officer for Syxsense. “Unfortunately, even secure on-premise networks can be exposed. If an employee brings in a seemingly innocuous smart device, suddenly your isolated internal network is open to the internet and its ransomware attacks. Syxsense is a way to prevent that vulnerability.”
