Overview

After upgrading from an on-premises authority server to the Code42 cloud, you'll notice some changes in the Code42 console. This article describes the differences in the Code42 console between the two deployment models. 

How to access the Code42 console

To access the Code42 console, use a supported web browser to visit one of the following URLs:

Your credentials only work at one of these URLs. If you don't know the URL for your Code42 environment, contact our Customer Champions for support.

Code42 console URL for US2
Code42 console URL console.us2.crashplan.com was formerly www.crashplan.com/console. For more information, see Changes to server URLs.

Additional insider risk management tools

The Code42 console contains additional tools to detect and investigate insider risk. You must have certain product plans to see all the available menu options. Contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM) for assistance with product plans. 

Risk Exposure dashboard

The Code42 Risk Exposure dashboard gives you an overview of unusual activity in your Code42 environment so that you can investigate further in Forensic Search. 

Departing Employees list

The Departing Employees list enables you to review the file activity of employees who are leaving your organization. 

High Risk Employees list

The High Risk Employees list enables you to review the file activity of employees whose activity shows a high risk of file exfiltration or loss to your organization

Alerts

Review existing alerts to find potential data loss and manage rules to edit the criteria that generate alerts.

Cases

Cases helps you manage and respond to security investigations with tools that collect, organize, and retain user file activity.

Forensic Search

Forensic Search provides detailed visibility about files on user devices, including files not selected for backup. Forensic Search enables you to search file metadata to gain a clearer understanding of file activity throughout the organization.

Upgrades and maintenance

Upgrades and maintenance for your Code42 console and Code42 apps happen automatically during the scheduled maintenance and release windows. You can manage Code42 app updates in Administration > Client Management > Updates. For more helpful resources about releases and maintenance to the Code42 cloud, see:

Settings

Many of the configuration options and settings that appeared under Administration > Settings in your on-premises authority server no longer apply in your Code42 cloud environment. However, you can still configure Device Backup Default Settings like backup exclusions, file selections, and frequency and version settings, in organization settings. 

To view and update Device Backup Default Settings in your Code42 console: 

  1. Go to Administration > Environment > Organizations.
  2. Select an organization.
  3. Click the action menu
  4. Choose Device Backup Defaults.

These settings apply to that organization as well as any organization inheriting settings from it. 

Identity management

Improved identity management screens in the Code42 console make it easy to connect and manage authentication and authorization for Code42. Go to Administration > Integrations > Identity Management to: 

Identity_management

RADIUS
Using RADIUS for user authentication is not supported in Code42 cloud environments. 

More administration tools

The Code42 console contains more tools for managing your Code42 environment under Administration. You must have certain product plans to see all the available menu options. Contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM) for assistance with product plans. 

Data Preferences

Data Preferences enable you to exclude file activity from IP addresses and domains you trust from dashboard visualizations, alerts, and search results in Forensic Search.

Support Access

Use Support Access to give Customer Champions permission to access your environment to assist in troubleshooting.

Keystore

Archive Keystore enables you to store copies of users' encryption keys in your own keystore.

Audit Log

View the Audit Log for a record of who did what and when in your Code42 environment.

Data Connections

Use Data Connections to add and manage third-party applications such as cloud and email services to provide file event data to Code42. 

Troubleshooting environment issues

Code42 app

To access Code42 app logs in Code42 cloud environments, follow the instructions at Retrieve device logs from the Code42 console

Code42 console
