Centennial Discovery asset discovery extended to Windows Mobile Devices
Centennial Software announced the support for Windows CE-based devices in its award winning Centennial Discovery solution. The addition of this capability will enable network managers and IT staff to extend their current IT asset management and acceptable use policies across the IT estate, from the largest servers to the smallest PDA and Smartphone devices.
Audit information collected by the new client agents includes the devices’ operating system, attached memory, hardware configuration, software installations and file types.
Andy Burton, CEO of Centennial Software, commented: “Organizations are now spending huge sums of money on equipping staff with mobile devices for which they currently have no way of tracking. While these devices are a business-enabler, it is also important for firms to realize that left unmanaged they can become a real risk.”
