Throughout the process of your IT asset management, attention needs to be paid to your data security. Each device, each application, and each service needs to have levels of data security solutions built into it.

Through ITAM systems, security patches and upgrades can be easily deployed across a number devices and systems to ensure the utmost in data security management.
Removing and destroying old assets means that there are no old devices laying around that aren’t protected with your upgraded levels of security, or to physically end up in the wrong hands.
