Superfast agentless zero impact Discovery

Agents are a headache to maintain, and agentless tools don't collect the right information. xAssets Network Discovery collects all the information that agent-based tools do, but it runs agentlessly, has zero impact on the endpoint and executes in a few seconds. It can also be configured to collect more information as needed, and this can be added to the IT asset management database automatically.

  • Discover Windows, ESX, HyperV, VMs, Linux, Unix, SNMP devices and IP Phones with no agents
  • Enterprise class discovery software scalable to over 100,000 assets
  • Zero impact: fast, light, very low bandwidth with no compromise on the depth of discovery
  • Discover monitors, sql server editions and instances, exchange servers and VMs
  • Browser based and scalable to very large networks
  • Active Directory, Intune, SCCM and printer discovery integration
  • Extensible to collect any available endpoint attribute
  • Asset management system allows manual data fields and manual asset entry
  • Discover standalone devices including workforces working at home

Get Visibility of your Network Assets quickly

Our discovery technology is the fastest available, with the average discovery time for a deep discovery of around 4 seconds, and typically we run 75 threads concurrently. The number of threads can be controlled and specific discovery scripts that may be sensitive to low CPU availability can be configured for VDI environments. At full speed in lab environments we can discover 10,000 assets in under one minute while only hitting 10% of a 1GBPS network card.

Assets in a corporate LAN and WAN environment are discovered via a collection server. This server is a small Windows Server VM which can discover any endpoint that has network visibility to it. Assets with different credentials and different domains can be discovered from a single collection server if network visibility exists.

Data is inferred as much as possible so manual data entry is minimized or in some cases completely eradicated. Asset location is inferred from the IP range, users are connected via active directory to each endpoint. All incoming data is recognised, cleansed and validated. Software is recognised and any unrecognised software is processed by xAssets and can be delivered as an update in real time. We can also infer department, cost center, work center and any other attribute from discovered data with customized business rules specific to your network.

Remote assets which never connect to the corporate network can be discovered via a remote https based utility to feed data back to the application.

What can we discover?

All of the following are discovered rapidly without using agents.

  • All versions of Windows Server and Desktop applications
  • Linux and Unix
  • Apple Mac
  • ESX
  • Hyper-V
  • Software on all endpoints is discovered and recognised
  • Network equipment with SNMP (routers, switches...)
  • IP Phones
  • Monitors
  • Sql Server editions, instances, databases and data files
  • Exchange Servers
  • Virtual Machines
  • Active Directory, Intune, SCCM and Printer Discovery Integration
  • Cloud assets, edge assets and datacenters
  • Multiple networks across LANs, WANs, bridges etc
  • Off-LAN computers can be discovered over a web connection
  • IBM AIX™

Fast, Scalable and Secure

This discovery technology was designed from the ground up to be very fast, scalable, have no impact on the endpoint and no impact on the network. The software is written in a low level programming language which performs at many times the speed of traditional .NET C# applications.

The software is used to discover millions of assets for Microsoft software agreement annual true-up audits and we have been running this service since 2009. This means the software is secure, stable and robust enough to run on thousands of enterprise networks worldwide.

The system scales to around 100,000 assets per application server with a database rollup option possible for organisations with 1,000,000+ discovered assets.

The US Air Force granted certification for all xAssets Version 7.1-x products to be used on the two main US air force networks - NIPRNET and SIPRNET. This means the product is written to the highest standards and specifications and has passed stringent tests covering all aspects of software security in a web based environment.

Work from Home and Remote Device Discovery

All xAssets IT solutions include functionality to discover devices which are not present on the corporate network. Multiple architectural options exist to discover these devices and each option can be further configured or scripted in different ways to suit local security requirements. The following architectures are supported without requiring configuration:

  • For devices on VPN, we may be able to discover devices through the VPN subnets
  • A link can be sent to users, clicking the link installs a temporary script which runs a one-time discovery
  • A link can be sent to users, clicking the link installs a script which runs periodic discovery
  • Startup scripts can be deployed through domain policy to trigger discovery upon reboot
  • We can discover the entire users home subnet, so security aspects of the firewall and other devices may be inspected

Reporting includes a list of users who are expected to have a home device but have not run discovery yet, so the entire workflow supporting this processes is covered

In all cases the discovered information is automatically sent back to the application server running your xAssets solution. The information returned includes security information and full hardware and software inventory data.

Discovery takes one or two seconds (typically 4 seconds on slow devices), it is invisible to the user and does not block the device.
