This article contains a reference guide for settings used to enable endpoint monitoring for your entire Code42 environment. To access endpoint monitoring, navigate to Settings > Endpoint Monitoring.
Enables or disables scanning of file metadata on all removable media, such as USB drives or SD cards.
Enables or disables detection of syncing files using these cloud storage apps:
(version 7.0 and later)
Enables or disables detection of files accessed by web browsers and other applications (for example, uploading attachments to web-based email or downloading files via FTP).
This may also include other instances of apps accessing a file, such as opening a local file to view it in a web browser without actually uploading it.
Devices using Code42 app versions older than 7.0.0 only monitored activity in web browsers, and only on Windows devices. Version 7.0.0 expands upload and download detection to include Macs as well as other applications, such as Slack, FileZilla, FTP, and cURL.
Enables or disables detection of file-restore activity, such as restores of files belonging to other users.
Enables or disables detection of dangerous, malicious, or sensitive file metadata and file contents based on specified patterns using the YARA rule framework. Pattern matching requires creating a YARA rule file and manually deploying it to each user device. Unlike the other types of endpoint monitoring, pattern matching only searches files included in the user's backup file selection.
Pattern matching can scan for MD5 hash and filename matches on any file, but does not extract file contents of binary or compressed files. Practically speaking, this means pattern matching only searches the contents of plain text files, unless you create a rule targeting a specific binary string.
Google's Drive File Stream retrieves files by mounting a temporary internal drive partition on the user's device and streaming files to the temporary drive. The Code42 app only monitors file movement to external drives, so it does not detect this activity.

We also have a training module about the Code42 Security Center. The module is 4 videos that are 5–8 minutes long. These videos cover how to enable endpoint monitoring, review security events, and monitor user activity to help you protect against internal and external threats to your organization’s intellectual property.
