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.
Visibility of activity captured by Incydr is not limited by your Code42 organization hierarchy.
Code42 organizations only control endpoint settings related to file preservation (backup), agent deployment, and identity management. Users with roles that allow access to Incydr features (such as the Risk Exposure dashboard, Alerts, and Forensic Search) can view insider risk data for users in all organizations.
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:
|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.
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.)

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.
Reduce CPU use during the initial scan
If you are deploying to devices with limited processing power or want to minimize CPU usage during the initial scan, see our steps for limiting CPU usage.
Google Drive for Desktop 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.
