Symantec Endpoint Encryption combines full-disk and removable media encryption with centralized management to protect sensitive information and ensure regulatory compliance.

The Symantec Endpoint Encryption adapter uses SQL to fetch information about devices.

Types of Assets Fetched

This adapter fetches the following types of assets:

  • Devices

Parameters

  1. MSSQL Server (required) - The DNS / IP Address of the Microsoft SQL Server your Symantec Endpoint Encryption instance is using.
    • To use a specific named instance, the value supplied should be in the following format: {server_host}{instance_name}.
    • If no instance is supplied, the default instance will be used.
  2. Port (optional, default: 1433) - The port used for the connection.
  3. Database (required, default: CIS_CMDB) - The name of the database inside the SQL Server (Usually starts with "CM_").
  4. User Name (required) - The credentials for a user account that has the required permissions to fetch assets.
    NOTE
    • The best practice is to create a dedicated SQL local user for Axonius usage. For details on creating an Axonius user for Microsoft SQL Server, see Creating a Local Read-Only User for Microsoft SQL Server.
    • If you are using a domain user, specify the domain and the user name in the following format: domain\username.
  5. Password (required) - The user's password. The password must not include ";".
