RFID Takes Risk, Time and Cost Out Satisfying IT Asset Tracking


RFID is “the tool for the times” to efficiently meet today’s IT asset tracking requirements. Manual and bar code- based asset tracking processes are no longer timely or accurate enough to mitigate the risks of non-compliance with SOX, HIPAA, PCI, the HITECH Act and the growing list of other regulations governing enterprise information and assets. RFID solutions are taking the time, cost and risk out of meeting IT asset tracking and reporting needs. Xerafy and its network of experienced partners are helping organizations solve IT asset challenges with an innovative line of read-on-metal RFID tags that are designed for identifying rack servers, storage devices and networking equipment, tracking PCs, laptops and smart phones, and even for embedding into blade servers, and by working with IT hardware suppliers to source tag equipment for their customers. 

The numerous regulations for controlling enterprise data and IT assets essentially all require organizations to have more visibility into their equipment. Organizations need to know where all their IT assets are at all times, document that assets have remained under their control, and be prepared to provide this documentation on demand to meet audit requirements.

These requirements extend beyond the data center, and increasingly, beyond the four walls of the enterprise. Mobile devices are a major, expanding source of liability and are a leading cause of data breaches today. It is hard enough to track and manage servers, routers and other assets installed in locked data centers. Now these protections need to be extended and enhanced to include desktops, laptops, smart phones and other personal devices employees use to access enterprise information.
