Solving your Asset Problem is a New Year’s Resolution you can Actually Achieve

Everybody starts off the new year with one or more resolutions. However, according to Forbes, around 80% ditch their resolutions by February! So here is a new year’s resolution you can actually achieve  – solving your enterprise asset problems. 

That’s right, with Aura Asset Intelligence for Splunk® you can finally discover and secure all your network assets. Not only that, Aura can be up and running in your Splunk Cloud or on-premise environment in just days, not weeks or months.

Aura Asset Intelligence solves the following common asset problems facing cyber security teams:

  • Incomplete or Inaccurate Asset Data
    Aura searches across all your data and uses patented analytics to continually discover and update complete and accurate inventories of assets. Aura populates a full record for each asset and keeps track of associated identities, installed software and asset activity over time.
  • Lengthy Security Investigations
    Aura captures who had what assets and when, so you no longer have to spend hours during investigations trying to reconcile identities and assets to security events. Aura also enriches your security alerts with accurate asset data, providing much needed context during your security investigations.
  • Gaps in Endpoint Security Controls
    Aura discovers all your assets, including the ones you don’t know about and measures compliance against your security metrics in real-time. This allows you to instantly identify and close gaps in your security controls and track endpoint compliance with these controls over time. Quickly add your own business metrics in Aura and start measuring endpoint compliance immediately.
