The Axonius solution is deployed as a single virtual appliance. It does not require the ability to sniff network traffic, scan the network, nor the installation of any endpoint agents. The virtual appliance connects on a continual basis to your existing data sources to retrieve asset data about devices and users, and locally stores all data required for the functionality of the solution.
Once the virtual appliance is deployed, the solution utilizes adapters to connect to its target data sources. Each adapter requires basic configuration information, including the hostname or IP address of the target system, and the relevant access credentials. For example, in the case of Microsoft Active Directory, the solution needs the IP address or hostname of a Domain Controller and a username/password with sufficient privileges to read all relevant objects.
In case that an adapter needs to connect to a relevant device management solution on a separate segregated network, a Node VM can be deployed to relay the information to the Main VM through a chosen port with all traffic being encrypted.
