MacB Partners to Achieve Software Certification for IT Asset Management Tool
DAYTON, Ohio February 12, 2018 – MacAulay-Brown, Inc. (MacB), a leading National Security company delivering advanced engineering services, cybersecurity and product solutions, announced today that the company and its business partner, xAssets LLC, has achieved Software Certification for the xAssets Client Version 7.x of the Information Technology Asset Management and Network Discovery Tool (ITAM-ND). The software recently passed the comprehensive certification process issued by the Department of the Air Force for both client and server applications. This certification is a culmination of work by MacB and xAssets technical engineers, project managers, and other experts to meet the exacting standards required by the U.S. Air Force to achieve software certification status.
ITAM-ND is now Air Force Network Integration Center (AFNIC) certified, and available on the AF Enterprise Product Library (EPL). The certification means it can run on Department of Defense (DoD) secure networks, thus allowing the tool to address cybersecurity – one of today’s most important software topics. Additionally, it provides an automated means to support 2013 and 2014 Congressional mandates for the DoD to identify and explain the use of software titles, as well as accurately provide an inventory of selected software licenses.
Below are some key highlights about the newly certified software tool:
• Cybersecurity – approved for use on the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet). The 36-month certification provides full life cycle statistical software package (AM) capabilities, including discovery that can stand alone or complement the System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).
• Features – simple to install, fast, and easy to use. It’s also highly configurable, has total hardware and software network discovery (agentless inventory), and an affordable solution for cloud or on-premise implementations.
• HIPAA – meets compliance requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
• Version 7.x – the most cutting-edge and flexible ITAM/ND product on the market today.
The xAssets ITAM-ND helps organizations meet critical ISO 19770 Compliance Standards for discovery networks of all sizes, without application or DLL conflicts or deploying agents. MacB’s technical team will install, configure, train, tailor and sustain the software. The tool includes a Configuration Management Database (CMDB), allowing Hardware Inventory, IT Asset Management, Software Asset Management and Software License Compliance within a single browser application.
“Through our business agreement with xAssets, we’re excited to offer newly certified Asset Management and agentless Network Discovery functionality to MacB’s DoD and Federal customers, presenting a holistic view of their entire network and the fastest route to fulfilling software license requirements,” said Fred Norman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MacB’s Mission Systems Group (MSG). “The discovery engine has been optimized for performance in every possible respect so that network operators, IT experts, software asset managers, and end users have access to nuts and bolts layers for a strategic approach to network discovery in small and large complex networks.”
