Why Network Security and IT Asset Management Are Interlinked

When talking about network security, it should be noted that cyber crimes are prevalent and cyber attacks shouldn’t be demeaned because they can become quite costly, but it can be mitigated by having strong network security. What most of us don’t know is that the IT asset management can play an essential role in enhancing security.

Why Network Security and IT Asset Management Are Interlinked

Some of the IT Asset Management solutions have the built-in features which can scan the networks for software’s which are already due for patching. Once the programs are found which are vulnerable, there will be an option to execute the automated patching or either carry out the patches automatically.

One of the main advantages of performing the patch management through the IT Asset Management solution is that the entire patching activity can be adequately documented. This further ensures that all the essential information is updated and readily available for further reference. By using IT asset management solutions, there can be an elimination of threats which take advantage of the unpatched software.

Most of the automated Software Asset Management scans will be able to detect the type of services which are running on a particular system. This can be used for detecting insecure network protocols like Telnet or FTP, which might have been installed by default with the shadow IT or with the support of a previous project. The automated scans also avail in identifying the assets which are the same or if they have duplicate functions. Once there is a detection of the software which is unnecessary or redundant, one can disable those who are not needed so that there can be a reduction in the attack surface.

The IT asset management (ITAM) solution not only provides an overall view on the IT assets but you will also know the hardware and software components. The ITAM solution will also have the capability to enforce restrictions on not only the data but also hardware and software.

Through this restriction enabling functions, there can be a streamline implementation of the role-based access control which is a commonly used method for the application of the principle of the least privilege. The visibility of the user privilege will allow you to see if the people who are no longer connected to the organisation are still able to access the IT assets which will further enable you to take appropriate actions.

There can also be mitigation of risk with the hardware disposal. The ITAM hardware disposal also further includes data destruction or wiping which therefore eliminates the risk of data leaks from the disposed of hardware.

The ITAM is not only for supporting the strategic decision making, but it can also be used for complementing the various network security risk mitigation plans.
