Beyond Network Discovery: Asset Panda Launches Device Data Agent For Improved IT Management And Audits
As of 9/17/2019 Asset Panda will no longer offer our device data agent; we pride ourselves on actively listening and applying customer feedback to our product updates, and we are focused on finding new solutions for auto-discovery.
For over five years, Asset Panda has helped businesses around the world track, organize, and manage their assets with its highly customizable, top-rated asset tracking and management SaaS platform. Now, the Frisco-based company is enabling business owners to take better control of their IT network assets with the launch of its device data agent for Windows.
This new tool from Asset Panda is an easier, more efficient way for customers to conduct audits of their internet-connected, Windows-based PCs (using operating systems XP or above) and installed software. The program, best suited for any business which maintains a sizable base of these computers, collects all the information from the devices and automatically syncs their data on a daily basis to the Asset Panda platform. The tool will sync both hardware and software information hosted on each computer, including, but not limited to:
- RAM size
- Processor type/speed
- Computer username
- Computer model
- IP address
- Operating system
- Software installs
- Hardware upgrades
Asset Panda’s device data agent can be installed on all Windows-based machines connected to the internet. Customers can download and install the tool’s small file (under 2MB) to individual computers.
The primary benefit of Asset Panda’s new device data agent for businesses is its time-saving factor. The tool speeds up a customer’s entire computer tracking process and eliminates the need for manual tracking, in-person check-ups of computers, and updates previously added by hand to the organization’s primary asset tracking platform. Additionally, because the device data agent does all this work automatically every day, reliability and accuracy of data are increased as employees will no longer have to be held accountable for manually entering upgrades or changes to the network’s computers. Finally, the device data agent enables companies to more quickly find which devices host specific pieces of software, were recently updated, or which may need to be upgraded.
“We are excited to offer the device data agent; this innovation will continue to help our users work smarter and more efficiently,” said Rex Kurzius, Founder and CEO of Asset Panda. “Our investment in this technology underscores our commitment to constantly improving our platform so it meets the needs of our users now and in the future.”
