Computer auto-discovery


GFI EndPointSecurity monitors the network, detects new computers that are connected to the network, notifies the administrator, and performs various tasks as configured by the administrator.

Computer auto-discovery

The administrator can, for example, set automatic detection to occur at pre-set intervals such as hourly, daily, weekly, etc. The administrator can also set the scope of the auto-discovery (e.g., only computers detected on the domain or on the entire network). Once computers are detected, the administrator can choose whether to automatically protect them by deploying a pre-defined policy, or simply to be notified that new computers were detected.

If auto-protect is selected, as soon as a computer is detected, the product automatically installs the agent and applies the default policy selected by the administrator.
