Agentless FIM - Enable FIM on network devices

When a network device's configuration changes, logging the modification and timestamp is crucial.


Lacking measures to detect changes in network configurations can result in compliance failures with regulatory standards.

What does it contain?

  • To enable FIM on network devices, add them under scan-based assets
  • View baseline event on first scan
  • Receive alerts on network configuration changes and precisely pinpoint differences during routine scans
