Key Task: Device Inventory

You can obtain a detailed inventory of the devices in your organization with Aternity, to know which devices are in use and by whom.

For example, you can see the number of devices running a particular operating system, or the number of devices from a certain manufacturer. You can also tie this information to usernames, to find out who is using a device, or what device is used by a specific person. This is a very common task, for simple solutions like finding the device belonging to the user who locked a file.
