Optimize your 4me with an Echo integration and gain full control and insights to all of your devices
Get the full benefits of 4me with the integration to Echo
Echo can pull data directly from your endpoints and send them directly into your 4me system in realtime. Your endpoints will automatically keep you updated through Echo and you can use that data to improve IT security, your work with Asset Management and compliance.
When you have activated Echo, you can receive all of the data and get it presented in 4me. Without the integration the information could only be manually imported to 4me by using a CSV file. But now, with this integration you can automatize your processes to secure correct data in realtime in your 4me CMDB database.
All company devices will automatically be created in 4me and all changes will dynamically update within a few minutes. This means, that you no longer have to worry about long manual processes and nightly import jobs.
It is possible to be receive a lot of different information about your devices, and sort and report these on the data. The data can for example be:
- Windows versions
- Harddisc size
- Condition of Bitlocker
- IP adresses
- Battery capacity
- Serial number
- Location (country and city).
This is only a small selection of the data that can be gathered. This can of course be adapted your current needs.
Echo makes it really easy for you to keep track of the compliance on your units based on the company baseline of apps such as if the device is encrypted, does it have an antimalware product installed and is Microsoft Endpoint Manager functioning as it should. A compliance check can consist of standard controls such as a Windows service check or a company specific control which can be more complex. A failed control can result in an automatized repair to establish your baseline to make the device compliant again.
It will be possible to se directly in 4me if any device is compliant and the employees in the company help desk can therefore also see the device condition right away when they are helping an end-user.
It is possible to follow the company baseline by using the reporting system of 4me. You can read more about compliance here.
Echo also has a number of security functions to keep your company data safe. Some of these functions are:
- Lock device – In case of loss or theft the device can be locked remotely with a message of ownership on the screen
- Delete device – As Echo is integrated on the motherboard, it is also possible to delete or overwrite all data on the harddrive remotely
- Lokalize device – If the device is missing, it can be localized geographically by using Echo
4me and relations
One of the pros of having all devices accessible in 4me is that you can associate dependencies to the specific device. As an example you can associate a ticket to a PC and an application to a server.
With 4me's IT Asset Management tool you can easily register what assets are dependant of each other. Is a server not working? Then it is possible that the applications connected to the server are not working either.
You will receive a single updated dashboard, that further gives you a lot of functionality to ensure the highest possible security level on your devices.
