Baseline of Physical Assets and Changes Physical Asset Risk Assessment Physical Integrity Proactive Protection for Physical Assets Asset IntegrIty MonItorIng 0 1 solutIon BrIef Ensuring the Physical Integrity of Your Compute infrastructure Asset Integrity Monitoring ensuring the Physical Integrity of your Compute infrastructure Offering a streamlined system that creates a baseline for all the critical assets you want to manage, NLYTE ASSET INTEGRITY MONITORING enables you to harden your physical compute environment by proactively evaluating the resiliency of your asset tracking and management. AIM identifies versions of software and firmware, which are unauthorized or have known vulnerabilities so you can head-off issues before they occur. AIM brings awareness of all devices attached to your networks, monitors for changes and compliancy providing the ability to report and respond to unauthorized assets, software, and changes. Ultimately all the applications and data your organization manages depend on a stable and secure physical infrastructure. Whether this infrastructure is located in your own data centers, in colocation or Edge facilities, you must be certain these resources are not intentionally or unintentionally compromised. Resources can become compromised when personnel make unplanned and/or unrecorded changes to assets. They may add or remove assets, such as servers or blades, without approval or without recording the information centrally, which can then leave your organization open to cyber-attack or to critical outages. Devices can be installed that don't meet security or safety standards. Additionally, new security threats are constantly being identified and require the latest firmware and software patches are applied to hardware to close these vulnerabilities. Yet many organizations do not have a comprehensive list of all hardware and the versions of firmware and software running on assets throughout their network which results in these systems being open to cyber-attack.
