FAQ for installing and evaluating ezaudit
How do I start evaluating ezaudit?
Install it to your PC or any PC on your network. Nothing to install at your server.
No reboots are required either at your PC you nor your server.
And note, you don't need to install ezaudit to a server.
Unlike most competing products, ezaudit doesn't launch audits from a console. So that's never a concern about where to install.
Read our comprehensive Evaluators FAQ with more information about ezaudit.
How do I deploy ezaudit?
There's no "deployment" in the usual understanding of that term. You can easily be ready-to-audit in 10-minutes or less from installing.
Do I need to install or push anything to our PCs?No. Nor do we make any changes to any PC being audited.
Do I need to install anything on my server?No. You'll just create a share and copy our modules to that share. They run at the PC being audited, not at the server.
Do I need to start the audits from my PC?No. Audits don't run from a console on your PC.
Do I need to open or reserve any ports?No. ezaudit doesn't work that way. Just a folder/subfolder share from your server to hold the audit modules and audit files.
Do I need to make changes to our firewall?No. Audits don't need any changes.
The only change you may need to make is to allow the ezaudit Admin Console on your own PC to check for updates, and only if you use a white-list to control access to the internet. If that's the case then it's just a matter of allowing access to ezaudit.net.
No usage telemetry is sent and we don't get any audit data whatsoever.
Does the audit require admin credentials to run audits?No.
Does the audit require Remote Registry or SNMP to be enabled?No.
Will there be a lot of traffic on my LAN?No. Audits run at the user's PC (with a very light impact) and no hit to your server.
Unlike discovery tools, there's no flood of traffic doing a ping-pong game of requests and replies from server to clients and back.
How do I uninstall? Does it take long?No, it's very easy and quick.
At the PC where you installed just do the usual: Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall from there.
To remove the server-side items, read this. It take just a few minutes.
No reboots required either at your PC or any server.
