Extending Visibility to the Endpoint
Safend Auditor is a lightweight, intuitive, clientless software utility that illuminates enterprise endpoint blind spots – providing organizations with the visibility they need to identify and effectively manage endpoint vulnerabilities.
With Safend Auditor, administrators can differentiate between secure productivity enhancers, such as authentication tokens, and potential security threats, such as mass-storage MP3 players. Safend Auditor also tracks which WiFi networks employees are connecting to - secure encrypted networks or exposed public networks. Using data gathered by Safend Auditor, administrators can map out granular security policies that exactly meet their business needs.
Rapid Scanning of All Network Endpoints
With no endpoint client installation required, Safend Auditor transparently and rapidly queries all organizational network endpoints, locating and documenting all devices that are or have been locally connected. Safend Auditor checks all USB, PCMCIA, Firewire, and WiFi ports – granularly identifying endpoint devices connected for each user, both currently and historically.
Easy to Understand Reports
The results of the Safend Auditor audit are viewable in HTML formal, or as an XML table that is easily exported to Excel or other applications for additional analysis and review. The report identifies devices by type, manufacturer, model, and serial number, and users according to their Active Directory definitions.
