TeamViewer, an esteemed global provider of remote connectivity and workplace digitalisation solutions, announced that it has integrated Lansweeper's technology for asset discovery and inventory management into its remote monitoring and management (RMM) offering. The announcement will streamline daily operations in IT departments through a unified IT management solution.

The integration of Lansweeper's IT asset discovery and robust inventory capabilities into TeamViewer's RMM will provide IT administrators with holistic visibility of their IT infrastructure.

In particular, this will facilitate accurate mapping of every device network connection, rendering detailed insights into hardware and software configurations. These capabilities will empower administrators to make well-informed decisions and optimise IT resources.

The new synergy will also enhance risk management processes by efficiently detecting unauthorised network devices and non-compliant software. This proactive measure facilitates IT administrators' efforts in preventing potential policy violations and securing compliance with prevailing IT policies and regulations.

Moreover, the solution enables efficient management of the IT landscape. IT administrators can monitor their hardware and software inventory and track warranty status and patch deployments. A consolidated dashboard will provide a clear overview of the entire IT landscape, enabling strategic planning and cost-effective decision-making.

Frank Ziarno, Vice President of Product Management at TeamViewer, underscores the significance of integrating Lansweeper's robust IT asset discovery and inventory capabilities into their Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) offering. This integration aims to offer a comprehensive solution from a single vendor.
