Product Highlights

Agent-less Inventory

Without the need to install an agent, LOGINventory inventories hardware, software, Windows configurations and all kinds of devices with SNMP or SSH interfaces directly via existing APIs.

 

Software License Management

License Management

LOGINventory’s license management is based on the existing software package inventory data. An easy-to-use wizard helps the user convert a package into a licensed-managed product. It allows to control up- and downgrade rights, maintenance contracts, license purchase and sale, as well as several license metrics like: per-user, per-device, per-installation, concurrent-use, etc and completely fulfills today's SAM requirements.

 

Software Usage Tracking

software usage tracking

LOGINventory optionally provides a separate usage agent: LOGINuse. This module registers all last used applications of all users of a computer. It also works on terminal servers. Of course, usage data will be applicable within the LOGINventory license management. By comparing installed software applications with actually used licenses you may discover a vast potential for cost savings as you will identify unused and superfluous applications.

If LOGINuse is not available, the LOGINventory system – via Windows API – tries to detect the last known points in time when the applications were used. However, the informative value of these data is less reliable and only applications started from Start menu, desktop or Windows Explorer will be considered.

 

Microsoft Exchange Inventory

MS Exchange

LOGINventory6 provides an overview over the entire Microsoft Exchange organization: It discovers all of your servers with their editions, roles and many details of mailbox databases.

Furthermore, mobile devices like smart phones, tablets and others that are connected to the Exchange server via ActiveSync will be inventoried and displayed together with all other assets.

 

Asset Identification by Fingerprint

Fingerprint

LOGINventory6 uses a new fingerprint method to identify assets in a secure way. It is used to prevent duplicate entries that can occur when a computer is renamed or motherboard or network card were exchanged.

 

 Active Directory Integration

LOGINquiry

LOGINventory6 lets the administrator define scan ranges based on existing AD structures. All modifications made within the AD like new subnets, sites or OUs will be automatically included at the next scan. This reduces the administrative hassle of entering and updating scan ranges in the scan module's GUI.

 

Graphical Network Topology

Topology

LOGINventory6 now provides the graphical presentation of your network structure. You get an optically clear and detailed view of the topology with its port connections and asset dependencies between clients, servers, switches, printers, etc. Depending on the network size, this feature helps the administrator get a better overview over the network environment as a whole or in parts.

 

User Account Anonymization

Anonymization of User Data

In generell, LOGINventory6 stores interactive user accounts in an anonymized way. With this technology that converts clear text data into a nonhuman readable and irreversible form, LOGINventory6 fully complies with legal standards regarding the protection of users' privacy.

 

Portable Use without Installation

The LOGINventory Management Center (LMC) can be exported to a network share or to a removable storage medium like a USB stick. Afterwards, the LMC can be executed directly on other PCs without any previous installation step.
