Use cases

The Platform API can be tailored to support various deployments and use cases depending on your requirements. Although it’s well-suited for Lansweeper partners or prospective partners, it is not limited to only partners and has the flexibility to adapt to different scenarios and support multiple use cases.


As a Platform API user, you will also benefit from all of the use cases supported by the Data API.

IT Asset Management (ITAM)

Having complete visibility of an organization's IT assets is a complex task. With the support of Lansweeper discovery capabilities, you can address this challenge, helping to enable or enrich the functionalities provided in your software by importing complete and accurate IT asset data available through the Platform API.

Endpoint detection & response (EDR)

Lansweeper’s discovery of end-user devices complements monitoring systems to detect and respond to cyber threats. They also help identify unmanaged devices that could represent potential threats to the organization.

Network detection & response (NDR)

By combining different Discovery Sources and Credential-free Device Recognition (CDR) technology, supported by machine learning, Lansweeper enables you to better understand the devices entering or using your network.

Extended detection & response (XDR)

Lansweeper complements the Extended EDR by providing an independent baseline for completeness of their data scope.

Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR)

The IT asset data retrieved by the Platform API enables you to build your own understanding of a customer environment, gaining a comprehensive cybersecurity posture to orchestrate and automate the response to incidents efficiently. This greater fidelity of data allows you to tackle complex use cases through effective automation.
