Read our comprehensive Evaluators FAQ with more information about E-Z Audit.
How do I deploy E-Z Audit?
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.
Just install to your PC and share a couple of folders on your server.
Use the point and click tool to create a configuration to audit and add a line to your logon script (or even easier via a scheduled task).
Here's how (Quick Start Guide)
Do I need to install or push anything to our PCs?No, and any product that does that is polluting your PCs. Also, we make no changes to any PC or server being audited: touch free and clean audits.
Do I need to install anything on my server?No. You'll just create a folder share on the server and copy our modules to that share. Audits at the PC being audited and not at the server.
Do I need to start the audits from my PC?No. Your PCs are untouched. You can start an audit for any PC or PCs that you may need to audit outside the schedule that you set using the ezaudit On-Demand tool in the Admin Console.
Do I need to change anything on our firewall or require Admin rights to run audits?No, and any product that requires it has some serious flaws in how they do what they do.
Does the audit require Remote Registry or SNMP to be enabled?No and any PC audit tool that requires that is opening some security holes in your network.
Will there be a lot of traffic on my LAN?No, in fact basically zero. Audits run at the user's PC with nothing happening at your server or across the wire.
Think of it along the lines of sharing notepad.exe from the server to a user then they save back a small file.
How do I revert and uninstall?It's quick and easy.
At the PC where you installed just do the usual thing to remove any program via Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall from there.
To remove the server-side items, read this. The process takes just a couple of minutes.
No reboots required either at your PC or any server.
