Cyber Asset Discovery.

Cyber Asset Discovery.


Your company is likely to be made up of thousands of digital assets – each one a potential ingress path for cybercrime if not secured correctly.  Do you know how many you have in your organisation? How confident are you that they’re all secure? Any uncertainty around this could expose your business to non-compliance and threats of cyberattacks.

The majority of enterprises struggle to gain an accurate and complete view of their digital assets. It’s a mammoth task getting a firm grasp of everything from on-premises to remote, from physical devices to virtual machines and cloud, from managed to unmanaged Internet of Things (IoT) devices and industrial control systems (ICS/SCADA) and more.


It’s a fast, agentless and low impact solution designed to give you visibility and insight across all connected assets.

The tool integrates directly with your current infrastructure and can be up and running in just minutes, allowing you to:      

  • Discover all your assets and other devices on your networks
  • Identify gaps, vulnerable areas & risks
  • Enable automation & enforcement of security policies

“A Cyber Team’s main tasks are to determine which information assets are priorities for protection, how likely it is that they will be attacked, and how to protect them.”

McKinsey & Co.


Uncertainty around the volume of a digital assets, across your entire business.

The tool uses signature-based asset correlation to identify all devices on your networks whether managed or unmanaged, known or unknown. This provides you with a true understanding of the scope of your estate and greater awareness of associated risks

Difficulty in categorising digital assets.

Even if you have a decent understanding of what your business’ digital assets are, categorising and classifying them may not be as easy. This is important, as it allows you to understand their use and relative importance in terms of data sensitivity and their support of business processes.  Our Cyber Asset Discovery tool provides real time asset information and status to help you make sense of all your assets, depending on category. It also allows you to quickly search for devices, applications, locations, state, device interaction.

Concerns around the impact on sensitive devices.

Our tool is powerful, but also very delicate. What we mean by this is that it works on a passive detection basis, resulting in minimal impact on the network and it won’t adversely affect sensitive or specialist equipment.

Discovery agents are deployed at key points on your network/s (internal, cloud and hybrid) to identify network traffic meta data and identify digital assets.network traffic meta data and identify digital assets. Agents can be deployed remotely to your estate as virtual machines.

Metadata on assets is processed and automatically analysed within our secure cloud centres and presented to our security consultants for validation and investigation.

Our team will review and analyse the information gathered and provide a report detailing the assets discovered. We will produce recommendations for improvement opportunities based on these findings. During the discovery period the tooling will be available to you to review in real-time the assets being identified and the amount of detail able to be captured and presented.


Some say knowledge is power, and that’s certainly the case in cybersecurity. Armed with a complete understanding of what your digital assets are, the role they play in your network and what vulnerabilities that reveals, is an excellent first step towards a solid cyberdefence. If you’re looking to take the initial steps in ratcheting up your information security resilience, Cyber Asset Discovery is a very good place to start.
