Asset Monitoring and Management
It is important to keep an eye on your company assets. You should know:
- Who has a company device?
- What data do they have access to?
- How is that data protected?
You should also work with your technology partner to make sure your asset list is kept up-to-date. A good MSP will be able to provide reports on demand that include model/serial and what users have access to what data.
It is also important to have a replacement schedule in place. No hardware lasts forever and it is a great idea to know which assets should be replaced when so you don’t look around one day and realize all your equipment needs to be replaced.
