In this case, vScope lets you quickly identify all servers that have Adobe Flash installed. These servers may be targets for Locky Ransomware due to a security hole in Adobe Flash.

Ransomware is a type of malware that holds a victim’s computer “hostage”. The attacker typically blocks off access to the system until a sum of money is paid over the Internet.

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 extended support has ended and you will no longer receive security updates. vScope can speed up the migration by quickly pointing out all SQL 2005 installations and their dependencies to other servers and applications.

vScope Dashboard provides instant actionable insight in the IT infrastructure. The Dashboard consists of widgets and widgets can be of different kinds such as:

  • Top 5: listing the top most/least of any resources in the datacenter.
  • KPI: Instant insight in metrics about servers, file system usage, databases, etc.
  • Tracker: Overview compliance and ensure high system availability

Here is how to set it up by adding more widgets and organizing them in a way that suits you.

vScope provides full historical traceability of any changes occurring in your datacenter. This gives you the power to easily track down configuration changes, do trend analysis and be proactive in your operations.

Here is how to easily overview all VM versions in your datacenter.

In this video we build a simple documentation in vScope Table Explorer showing RAM and CPU settings for all our virtual machines. The table will also include information about if the machines are powered on or not. 

By using the tab functionality and categorizing the machines depending on their VM version, vScope gives us a better overview and understanding of what our IT really looks like.

With vScope you can easily overview all local admins on every single server or client that has been inventoried by vScope. Here is how it is done in two different ways – first from the perspective of user groups and then from a user’s perspective

Installing KB2992611 could result in slow SQL Performance (Microsoft Technet). But when disaster strikes, how do you know which of your servers that has KB2992611 installed AND is running SQL Databases?

vScope lets you browse your IT for any specific configurations and settings. Like in this video, where we quickly find and list every server that has KB2992611 installed AND has Database Systems running on them. Easy!
