What's the difference between scans and scanners?

Created: 15 Aug 2012 • Updated: 15 Aug 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Need to add SharePoint Servers to DLP Enforce 11.6 and DI 3.0.1.

Can someone help me understand the difference between - Setting up scans of SharePoint Server and Setting up scanning for SharePoint 2007 servers?

We're looking to gain insight into SharePoint data on sites like we can with Filers - find confidential data, identify owners, when it's touched .etc...

Seems like we would install the SharePoint solution on the web front end in a farm and then add a SharePoint Target and call it a day.

Setting up the sharepoint scanner and having to create a batch that starts and stops the Vontu SharePoint2007Scanner Service doesn't seem like that way to go.

TIA,

Randy

That is totally the way to go. In fact, Scanners are going to be deprecated eventually and you'll have to go with the alternate methods of scanning.

The main difference between the scanners (what I call agents) and the rest are the scanners reside on the server/endpoint/device/whatever that is being scanned where as the solutions (agentless) remotely scan. The scanners consume many more resources in general and, as you pointed out, are a bigger pain to setup as for as scanning goes.
