Fing becomes part of a bigger family


Fing joins forces with Lansweeper, leader in IT Asset Management

We are happy to inform you that, as of today October 14th, 2020, Lansweeper, the leading IT Asset Management platform, has announced the acquisition of Fing. This addition will extend and enhance Lansweeper’s own IT network discovery capabilities by adding Fing’s unique device recognition capabilities to the company’s product portfolio. Moreover, this change will allow Fing to grow beyond expectations, both in the Device Recognition technology and with its consumer products, Fing App, Fing Desktop and Fingbox.

Speaking on the acquisition, Dave Goossens, CEO at Lansweeper, said:

“Fing is leading the charge when it comes to the unique challenge of device identification. Combining that capability with our unmatched, agentless discovery capability is an important step in realizing our vision for ITAM 2.0: to enable every organization to manage and secure their IT infrastructure by understanding their IT estate.

Every new device added to a network brings with it a responsibility to properly identify and manage new security vulnerabilities, and companies need to address these concerns as the number of connected devices rapidly increases. With this acquisition, we’re bringing the market leader in device discovery and identification into the fold to really make that vision of ITAM 2.0 come to life for businesses worldwide”.

Patrizia Cozzoli, CEO at Fing added: “We look forward to this next stage in our journey; by joining forces with Lansweeper we significantly expand both our market reach and our development capabilities, with the addition of the overall Enterprise IT and OT devices. This acquisition allows us to further our mission in device recognition. We’re delighted to partner with an organization that has a clear and aligned vision for the future of IT Asset Management and a team that understands the great value Fing brings to this challenge.”
