What is the role of inventory management or IT asset management in security? Inventory management provides the necessary information about the high-value assets. As the inventory of assets change, the security context for a particular asset changes as well. For example, if inventory management identified there is database server that has critical or confidential customer information then the security monitoring and management system could correlate any traffic that is reaching the IP address of this asset and identify any traffic anomalies in the payload of the IP traffic trying to reach this asset. Furthermore, the rules and policies can be developed to prevent any unwanted traffic to reach this asset. In isolation, Inventory management of IT assets is simply an inventory list. But combined with priority, risk value, and asset value inventory management data provide for an automated security monitoring that can be reflect in a security dashboard for real-time analysis.

The correlation of asset location, priority of the asset, risk assignment, network traffic and a number of other risk factor make CloudAccess inventory management not just an asset management tool but a powerful situational awareness dashboard that allows our customer to identify the risk immediately and take preemptive action to mitigate risks.
CloudAccess Sensors also include enterprise-class Intrusion Detection capabilities.CloudAccess sensors can attach to a port on a core switch and watch network traffic in real-time at the packet level for potential malicious payloads. Sensors also include a Host Intrusion Detection (HIDS) agent that can be installed on servers and workstation to increase protection and awareness of these systems. CloudAccess sensors also have the ability to seamlessly work with the wireless networks and detect rogue access points.
