IT Visibility and Foundational Data Solutions

Every successful and effective IT Asset Management (ITAM), Software Asset Management (SAM), IT Service Management (ITSM) or Cybersecurity initiative requires a foundation of complete and accurate data. This includes discovery and usage data, as well as operational, procurement and financial data from other sources that has been normalized and enriched.

ITMC Discovery™

ITMC Discovery™ includes agent-based and agentless cross-platform discovery and utilization monitoring. It provides the level of accuracy and breadth of scope required to effectively manage even the most complex enterprise infrastructures.

  • Network Device Discovery and detailed Software and Hardware Inventory
  • A powerful AI engine to enhance the quality of scan processes and results
  • Application Utilization Monitoring with detailed user interaction metrics
  • Server Utilization Monitoring to identify underutilized or overtaxed servers
  • Cloud Infrastructure utilization monitoring that reports on guests/hosts, cloud subnets, billing information and more to ensure that you get optimal value from your cloud investments
  • SaaS Application utilization reporting with subscription reconciliation and reporting
  • Oracle GLAS-verified discovery for Oracle® Database, Fusion Middleware and Java SE.

IT-Pedia® is an extensive, curated IT product data library. It enhances the quality, value and usability of any ITSM, ITAM, SAM, Cybersecurity or Procurement system by automating the creation and maintenance of asset and service catalogs.

  • Offers enrichment data based around SKUs and manufacturer product codes, including:
    • Makes, models, application names, versions, editions, UNSPSCs and much more
    • Vendor details, licensing programs and product use rights
    • Hardware attributes such as weight, physical dimensions and power usage
  • Includes critical end-of-life (EOL) and end-of-support (EOS) dates, which are key when planning refresh cycles to ensure future compatibility and avoid security risks around older applications that can no longer be patched.

Cybersecurity and Risk Management Solutions

Cybersecurity Management Suite™

Eracent’s framework-driven Cybersecurity Management Suite™ (CSMS) helps organizations identify and manage cyber risk.

  • Shows how people, processes and technology work together to prevent and mitigate threats
  • Simplifies and ensures compliance with cyber mandates and directives
  • Includes vulnerability and risk management at the network, device, application, and component/library (SBOM) level to ensure full protection
  • Provides proactive framework and process management for cybersecurity teams who must ensure full network coverage and that policies are followed
  • Offers detailed metrics as well as summary dashboards for CISOs
  • Can be integrated to consolidate data from and work with many focused discovery and security tools.
CSMS SBOM Manager™

Supports an automated, proactive process for managing and analyzing Software Bills of Materials (SBOMs) for cybersecurity, license risk reduction and obsolescence management.

  • Provides a centralized repository to store all your organization’s SBOMs and their contents. When a potential vulnerability is identified, the system highlights every application that utilizes a vulnerable component or library. Combined with discovery data about installed software, this expedites the mitigation process.
  • Helps protect your valuable IP and minimize legal risk by identifying all open source license types that are utilized, since certain licensing (i.e., Strong CopyLeft) can leave your applications exposed to authoring claims and lawsuits
  • Offers the ability to properly manage SBOMs by assigning them owners and grouping them by lines of business, publishers, geography and more to ensure that your organization maintains full governance of all SBOMs and related applications
  • Extends the value of your existing cybersecurity and discovery tools via flexible integration options.
Eracent Vulnerability Manager

Enables Detection, Identification and Reporting of Software Vulnerabilities.

  • Quickly identifies any installed products with known vulnerabilities, based on trusted, continuously updated sources including NIST’s CVE and MAVEN
  • Highlights potential threats, and software that needs to be patched, updated, or replaced.
