Happy Customers

“Device42 is the greatest thing since sliced bread. For the first time we can ‘see’ everything in one place.”

- A large financial institution

“Take security requirements into account from the beginning – Don’t take security lightly, and don’t treat it as an afterthought. Security is not only important when someone is asking for the results or auditing you, but should instead be taken into account every day. Device42 was obviously built with the hybrid and cloud-only environments in mind, and if you run a hybrid or cloud-only datacenter, Device42 is a great choice.”

- AppDirect

“With Device42 we were able to migrate to the cloud in half the time, and with more confidence knowing that we had access to accurate information.”

- Large Pharmaceutical Company

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

Device42’s powerful data center infrastructure management (DCIM) capabilities have revolutionized the way IT departments manage their data centers.

Application Dependency Mapping

Application Dependency Mapping (ADM) allows Device42 to auto-discover application dependencies and service dependencies on a deeper level across your entire network. ADM is valuable in a range of scenarios. Migration and transformation projects are informed by the detailed dependency information that ADM surfaces. Lifecycle operations ITSM and DevOps are likewise enhanced as information about downstream impacts from incidents is made available.

  • Agentless services and application discovery using native protocols.
  • Application dependency diagrams visualize application to device relationships.
  • Use Application Impact Lists to reduce risk and potential downtime.
  • Automatically discover application components for applications such as Oracle, Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB, IIS etc.
  • Detailed configuration discover for major applications like Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ColdFusion, IIS, Apache, and more.


Infrastructure data isn’t very useful if you can’t easily integrate it with other tools. Device42 integrates with every tool you’re already using to manage your IT infrastructure. That includes ITSM tools like ServiceNow, Jira Service Desk, and Freshservice, as well as Configuration Management tools like Ansible, Puppet, Saltstack, and Chef.
