IT Asset Security

International Technology Company Improves IT Asset Security with Real-Time Tracking

Fixed readers, automatically triggered alarms, and real-time visibility helped this client keep assets where they need to be.
One of the most common reasons customers start working with Asset Vue is for improving the physical security of critical IT assets and have better control and better visibility into asset movement throughout the organization.

The Challenge

A Fortune 100 technology company had designated critical IT assets as belonging to specific locations across the country. Those assets should not move from their designated locations and so the client needed a system not just for tracking and monitoring but also alerting responsible parties to any movement.

The Plan

The on-site Asset Vue deployment teams worked with each IT manager to assess the security needs of each location. The teams worked together to map out fixed reader locations in doorways, stairwells, and hallways to make sure any access point was covered.

Any IT asset moved through those access points would be scanned by the fixed-position readers and that movement would be automatically logged in the system. At that point, the system would automatically send out alerts to the managers designated as responsible for that particular asset, either by location or by asset type.

Those managers could then, with just a few clicks, immediately see where the movement had been triggered and coordinate the necessary response.

The Results

This client now has a clear chain of command of managers responsible for specific assets and each person in that chain can rest assured trusting the Asset Vue system to alert them immediately of any movement as well as provide real-time visibility on demand into the location and status of every tracked asset in the system.

Not every organization needs that level of IT asset security, but every company has a need to have an asset management solution and needs to take the physical security of assets as seriously as the digital security of their corporate firewall and other protections.
