Continuous asset monitoring with integrated vulnerability scanning

McAfee Asset Manager uses both passive and active security scanning to canvass everything on your network in real time. It integrates with industry-leading vulnerability scanning and security incident management workflows to enable continuous asset discovery and compliance.

  • Get real-time awareness of all devices connected to the network.
  • Leverage true device tracking based on a media access control (MAC) address to prevent inaccurate device information if a device IP address changes.
  • Map virtual environments.
  • Deploy rapidly with one-time installation. No agents or infrastructure changes are required.

Real-time visibility into your network

Know what you are protecting

McAfee Asset Manager provides total visibility into your network, including managed, unmanaged, physical, and virtual devices.

Detect changes to network-connected devices in real time

See changes to devices operating on the network and track devices according to their MAC addresses. The information collected also includes changes made to the device reflecting the operation of third-party solutions.

Build a comprehensive asset profile

Maintain a comprehensive profile for each device operating on your network.

Enable user identity discovery

Correlate user identities with specific IP addresses for enhanced user intelligence to improve audit controls, regulatory compliance, and incident response. Identify vulnerable or exploited hosts, and eliminate manual efforts to track users.

Provide agentless virtualized environments mapping

Discover and track virtualized environments without using software-based agents, map between virtual guest devices and the physical system they depend on, and audit the configuration of virtual assets.
