IT Asset Management

Go beyond simple IT asset inventory management tools and ordinary IT asset management software with Virima ITAM.

Virima ITAM offers the full-lifecycle hardware and software asset management you would expect and goes much further when paired with Virima Discovery, automated CMDB and Business Service Mapping.

Manage risk

There is no bigger risk than not knowing for sure what assets you have to support and secure. Build and maintain an accurate inventory of all your IT assets to gain true control over them.

Spend wisely

Identify underutilized hardware and software assets and reclaim or reallocate for maximum efficiency and savings.  Make sure your most critical IT assets are well protected and don’t overspend for unnecessary support.

Become audit-proof

The next audit is always just around the corner. Be ready to answer with certainty and expediency when asked for your IT asset inventory, licensing, patch, security, financial governance, risk and compliance (GRC) reports.
