Layered, deep endpoint and server monitoring are paramount to maintaining a secure and compliant environment. These monitoring practices involve tracking and analyzing the activities, configurations, and vulnerabilities of endpoints (such as desktops, laptops, mobile devices) and servers (physical or virtual machines hosting applications, databases, or websites) within an organization’s network.

Traditionally, host monitoring solutions required the installation of an agent—a software component—on each monitored device. However, this approach has its limitations, including deployment complexities and resource overhead.

Recognizing these challenges, Cypago introduces its groundbreaking agentless endpoint and server monitoring feature, designed to revolutionize cybersecurity strategies.

Elevating Security with Comprehensive Endpoint and Server Monitoring

Cypago’s groundbreaking Cyber GRC endpoint and server monitoring feature is a game-changer in the realm of cybersecurity. This enhancement redefines data collection practices, empowering users to monitor and secure servers or endpoints with unparalleled precision while prioritizing security, risk, and compliance. What sets this solution apart is its fully agentless nature, ensuring seamless integration without the need for additional software installations.

Additionally, Cypago collects and monitors a diverse array of critical data points, including:

  • Remote session timeout configuration: Ensuring remote sessions are appropriately configured to minimize the risk of unauthorized access.
  • sudoers: Monitoring sudo configuration files to oversee user privileges and access permissions.
  • Installed software list: Providing insights into the software installed on each endpoint or server, including versions, to identify potential vulnerabilities or unauthorized applications, significantly enhancing your patch management strategy.
  • Services and drivers list: Monitoring running services and installed drivers to detect anomalies or unauthorized changes, indicating potential security threats.
  • Network configuration: Monitoring network settings and configurations to ensure proper segmentation and protection against network-based attacks.
  • Clock sync settings: Verifying clock synchronization settings to maintain accurate time across endpoints and servers, crucial for security protocols and compliance requirements.

This deep collection and analysis capability offers automation and continuous monitoring for the most stringent security controls mandated by frameworks like PCI DSS, NIST, and FedRAMP. With Cypago’s Cyber GRC endpoint and server monitoring, users can adapt to evolving business needs effortlessly, ensuring robust protection and regulatory compliance in today’s dynamic cybersecurity landscape.

Let’s explore the unparalleled benefits of this innovative solution:
