Overview

This article contains a reference guide for settings used to enable endpoint monitoring for your entire Code42 environment. To access endpoint monitoring, from the Organization Details select Edit and choose the Endpoint Monitoring tab.

Endpoint Monitoring

Endpoint Monitoring settings

Item Description
a Removable media

Enables or disables scanning of file metadata on all removable media, such as USB drives or SD cards.

b Cloud Sync Applications

Enables or disables detection of syncing files using these cloud storage apps:

  • Box
  • Box Drive (Mac only)
  • Dropbox
  • Google Backup and Sync
  • iCloud
  • OneDrive
    Code42 watches a personal OneDrive account and up to two OneDrive for Business accounts on each device
c Browser and other Application Activity

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.

Code42 requires macOS permissions to detect file upload destinations 
If you enable Browser and other Application Activity detection, you must take action to grant Code42 permission on Mac devices to detect the window title and URL active at the time a file is uploaded. For details, follow the steps in Grant Code42 permissions to macOS devices.
d Printers

Enables monitoring of printer activity on user devices. After you select this option, you may need to update the backup file selection in order to capture this activity. (Mac and Linux only.)

e File Metadata Collection

Enables or disables File Metadata Collection for Code42's detection, investigation, and alerting features, including Forensic Search. Forensic Search provides detailed visibility for Code42 administrators about:

  • Files on user devices, including files not selected for backup
  • Files stored only in cloud services

This enables administrators to search file metadata to gain a clearer understanding of file activity throughout the organization.

Requires a product plan that includes File Metadata Collection.

Google Drive File Stream activity not detected by endpoint monitoring
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.
