Security and effective data center management starts from visibility of IT assets by real-time tracking and monitoring of servers and critical IT components. Tracking thousands of assets in a typical banking data center, and ensuring that laptop computers leaving a building are authorized to do so—and are with the properly authorized users—is a cumbersome task for bank security officers.
Employees and contractors entering and leaving the building often carry laptop computers that, in many cases, are the property of the organization but are assigned to a specific person. Each laptop computer has attached to an active tag with a unique ID number. That number is linked in back-end system to the computer’s serial number, make and model, as well as the name and a photo of the individual authorized to use it.
To track the laptops and ensure none leave in the wrong hands, tags would help in finding a laptop & to look up the serial number listed on the computer to determine who was authorized to use that machine. This would help to determine whether the individual holding the laptop was the one to whom it was assigned.
