Asset.Desk

Asset.Desk can be much more than a classic tool for IT scanning, inventory and IT asset management. It combines technical, organizational, security-related and commercial information on all company values ​​in one system. It has a modular structure in order to adapt to the current requirements of a company and can be easily expanded at any time as requirements change.

The basis for organized IT asset management is the inventory of all hardware and software data in the company, whether physical, virtual, mobile or in the cloud, as well as all other assets. Accompany your assets over the entire lifecycle, form licenses and contracts in Asset.Desk and add information such as "risk class", "protection status" or "GDPR relevance".
