IT asset management company Lansweeper recently acquired $158 million from enterprise capital and personal fairness agency Insight Partners which they will use to launch a new cloud platform that will integrate its IT asset discovery software with the latest cloud-based interference, where they hope to take things to the next level.
Founded in 2004, the platform provided by the company can scan corporate company networks which help identify assets like servers, routers, workstations, printers, monitors, and installed software. This lets the IT personnel and managers a single point of information for all their hardware, software and users across the country. The platform also helps make blind spots visible, thereby ensuring that licensing and the software are up to date. It also helps to improve the security of the software by making all the endpoints visible.
Lansweeper CEO Dave Goossens told the media, “You can’t manage, protect, optimize, or secure what you don’t know you have — first you need accurate visibility into your IT estate.” Lansweeper’s main aim is to minimise risk by offering insights into the IT infrastructure with the help of real-time inventorising. The company can also detect assets instantly after they connect to the company network and they don’t require any software installation.
Goossens added saying that their users receive a complete end-to-end date overview of their IT estate which helps them spearhead all their network-related activities, project, and decisions. Additionally, Lansweeper has an impressive set of clients that include IBM, Allianz, Samsung, Nestlé, and Maersk. In 2018, the company received a major investment from a private equity firm named Dovesco.
