Find Re-imaged / Re-purposed Devices
One challenge that many IT departments face is a guarantee that every machine that is decomissioned and re-assigned is properly removed from all of their respective consoles / systems. Most systems like your AV solution, 3rd party patching or management tool and products like SCCM will collect all of the device details. This allows the correlation between the various adapters to match the device up properly with things like mac address and serial number. If a device is not removed from one or more systems and is re-imaged you will find that Axonius will list 2 distinct asset names instead of 1 for the particular object.
Depending on your asset count / list, it may be challenging to identify all of the possible gaps and try to resolve the issue quickly and effectively. In version 4_6_12_0, users have the ability to use the Count function with the Asset name field to help identify these issues. Start with your base device group (workstation /server etc) and then use the new function to identify those devices that may still persist within one or more systems.
By adding this functionality, we are now able to quickly and easily produce results that will allow you to stay on top of rogue / orphan devices in your various systems.
