Agent-based SaaS Discovery

When it comes to Augmentt Discover, we believe in flexibility and power.

Augmentt Discover can collect SaaS usage data using both an Agent and Agentless model.

Here is a quick FAQ to help you differentiate the two options:

 

Agent

  1. What is it?
    • A lightweight agent that resides on the local machine and captures all browser-based SaaS usage.
  2. Ideal use case
    • RMM agent is already deployed to allow easy scripted deployment of the Augmentt agent in order to collect SaaS usage data from each employee’s individual machine.
  3. Best use for
    • Drilling into employee specific SaaS usage data.
  4. Deployment
    • Deployed via GPO or RMM.
  5. How it works
    • Maps each individual user’s browser history to the Augmentt master list of SaaS applications and provides our default category, as well as productivity and risk scores.
  6. Pros
    • Easy to deploy via RMM or GPO.
    • Provides granular user-based SaaS usage data.
  7. Cons
    • Today’s version only works on Windows-based systems*
    • Will only look at browser-based traffic, not applications installed locally which access the internet.
  8. Summary
    • Best to use the Augmentt Agent if you are looking for individual user’s SaaS data.
    • Easiest to deploy via RMM scripting and only slightly more effort via GPO.
