IT asset management and discovery provider Lansweeper is integrating its asset discovery and inventory technology with the remote monitoring and management (RMM) offering of remote-access specialist TeamViewer.
Dave Goossens, chief executive at Lansweeper, said that some 600,000 TeamViewer customers will have access to Lansweeper’s asset discovery and inventory technology.
“Having an automated, always up-to-date inventory is crucial for efficient and cost-effective IT management,” he pointed out in the December partnership announcement.
Frank Ziarno, vice president of product management at TeamViewer, said the result will be a “comprehensive single-vendor solution that enables IT administrators to maintain IT landscapes at scale”.
“This is a significant step forward in our commitment to simplifying IT management,” Ziarno said.
TeamViewer in April 2023 announced it was adding native RMM, targeting businesses. RMM in TeamViewer Remote includes device monitoring, asset management, software deployment and patch management, it said at the time.
Analysis by Verified Market Reports has suggested the global RMM market could hit $18.8 (£14.8) billion by 2026, growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2% from 2019 to 2026.
“This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for cloud-based solutions, rising demand for proactive monitoring solutions, and growing adoption of remote monitoring solutions among small and medium enterprises,” the report said.
For the sales channel, the new integration is expected to help them target a “whole new audience”, the vendor added – TeamViewer has claimed its software has been installed on some 2.5 billion devices worldwide.
Benefits of Lansweeper for customers are expected to include the potential for enhanced visibility of IT infrastructures, improved risk management and compliance by more easily detecting problematic devices and software across networks, and more efficient management of organisational IT overall, Lansweeper said.
“IT administrators gain complete visibility of their IT infrastructure by accurately mapping every device connected to the network. This includes detailed insight into hardware and software, enabling administrators to make informed decisions and optimise IT resources,” it said.
So far, the Lansweeper platform discovers and monitors about 28,000 customers, covering some 80 million connected devices at big names including Mercedes, Michelin, Liverpool FC, Carlsberg, and Samsung.
