How does it work?

Virima Discovery works as both an agentless network discovery tool and can be installed as an agent on Windows operating systems.

Discovery Agent

Discovery agent or agentless deployment

Agentless discovery is most common for data centers, network infrastructure, cloud environments and edge devices that tend to stay connected to the network such as printers and workstations (things like servers, routers, VPN devices, SAN devices and databases).

For Windows-based devices that leave the network or get powered down on nights and weekends, the Discovery Agent can be  leveraged. The easy-to-deploy Virima Discovery Agent detects device configuration changes in real-time (like new software installs), tracks changes while the device roams off-network and transmits the information back to the discovery system when a connection is available.

Discovery Probes

Virima discovery leverages over 80 out-of-the-box discovery probes to identify what’s on your network, what’s running in the cloud and what software is installed. It also tells you how each of these components is configured.

How discovery data be used.

How Discovery Data Should Be Used.

Discovery data is securely transmitted to the Virima cloud services where it is correlated and organized. Results are presented in a filterable view that can be easily moved to the Virima CMDB or a third-party CMDB solution.

Discovery data is used by Virima CMDB to automatically generate relationship, communication, application and service dependency maps. These maps are displayed in dynamic, personalized visualizations which are also available in Virima Enhanced ITSM and third-party CMDB/ITSM solutions such as ServiceNow and Cherwell.
