Hardware Network Monitoring & MDM NYC

Managed Equipment

A hardware asset is an umbrella term that describes any tangible, physical company technology asset, including those currently in use, those in storage, and support equipment. With this definition in mind, hardware assets are generally grouped into three primary categories:

End-user devices

End-user devices refer to any company hardware used directly by employees in their day-to-day work. This includes computers, tablets, smartphones, SIM cards, and more. Hardware assets also encompass personal devices used to perform business tasks within an organization.

Network/telecom hardware

Network and telecom hardware is support equipment that helps facilitate digital and analog communication. This includes routers, load balancers, switches, and telephone- and video-conferencing systems. Effective hardware network monitoring is crucial to ensure these devices operate efficiently and securely, maintaining optimal performance and preventing potential cyber threats.

Data-center equipment

Data-center equipment describes all hardware that allows data centers to function effectively, including servers, utilities, and security devices. Hardware network monitoring in data centers ensures that all components are running smoothly, helps identify issues before they become critical, and maintains the integrity and availability of data and services.

By implementing comprehensive hardware network monitoring, organizations can better manage their hardware assets, optimize performance, and enhance overall security.

Business hardware doesn’t always seem like a very safe investment; it depreciates in value quickly, sees ongoing wear and tear, and demands regular maintenance and occasional repair work. Effective hardware asset management (HAM) helps counter these drawbacks. The advantages of HAM include the following:

Improved loss prevention

Keeping an accurate catalog of all company hardware—in use as well as in storage—makes it easy to track equipment and identify missing hardware. Asset tagging, assigning ownership, and tracking the asset’s location give organizations the information they need to mitigate risks associated with incomplete asset knowledge. It also allows HAMs to identify which assets are idle and thus more likely to be targeted for theft.

Enhanced productivity

Without an established hardware asset management strategy, the responsibility of handling and keeping track of equipment often falls to employees. Without established HAM best practices, these employees may rely on inefficient, ineffective, or time-consuming processes. Proper asset management not only ensures accurate cataloging and distribution of essential equipment, it also frees up employees to make more efficient use of their time—predicting asset issues before they occur, and allowing organizations to automate many asset management processes.

Optimized usage

Hardware management best practices and well-organized maintenance and upgrade schedules help ensure that employees are using company equipment properly, and are getting the most out of it. At the same time, accurate asset inventories protect organizations from overspending, reducing overall spend and getting more for their hardware investments.

Increased security and compliance

It’s difficult for security teams to protect what they can’t see. Effective HAM provides a complete listing of all hardware assets accompanied by relevant version information. This allows security teams to create complete coverage strategies, while also identifying assets that may be vulnerable to emergent threats. Working in conjunction with ITAM, hardware asset management can also identify unapproved hardware assets and ensure compliance with established policies and regulations. Hardware network monitoring plays a crucial role here, enabling real-time tracking of hardware performance and potential security vulnerabilities.

More-effective lifecycle management

Perhaps most importantly, HAM gives businesses complete visibility and control over the asset lifecycle. For every piece of equipment, asset managers have easy access to product and vendor details, usage history, current ownership and tasks, and more. Relying on this data, HAMs can then make more-informed decisions related to vendor contracts, servicing, replacements, and more.

Taken all together, these benefits provide a clear advantage for organizations that invest in effective hardware asset management. Top-quality HAM systems and strategies, including robust hardware network monitoring, quickly pay for themselves, both in terms of time and money.

Cost savings are a part of essentially every benefit associated with hardware asset management. Here are several ways that HAM help cut costs:

  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • More accurate hardware budgets
  • Less hardware spend
  • More efficient disposal processes
  • Minimal manual work
