UpGuard currently supports scanning, reporting, comparing, and tracking changes for the following services and node types. Agentless scanning is enabled by using one of our connection managers. We have both an SSH connection manager and a Windows connection manager. All UpGuard instances (cloud and appliance) ship with an on-board SSH connection manager. If you are able to accept inbound SSH connections to your target nodes you can make use of it. Multiple connection managers can be used in an environment to provide load balancing and redundancy.

Windows

Server 2016, Server 2012, 2012 R2, Server 2008, 2008 R2, Windows 10, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1.

Windows nodes can be scanned using an agent (installed on each endpoint) or agentless using WinRM and a connection manager. See deployment example below.

Linux / Unix / OS X

Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, RedHat / RHEL, Fedora, CoreOS, VMware ESX / vSphere, Citrix Xenserver, CloudLinux, Amazon Linux, Oracle Linux, Arch Linux, Solaris, SUSE, AIX, FreeBSD, OS X.

Linux nodes can be scanned using an agent or agentless using SSH. All UpGuard instances (cloud and appliance) ship with an on-board SSH connection manager which can be used. See deployment example below.

Alternatively, a satellite SSH connection manager is available and can be deployed behind the firewall.

Network Devices

ArubaOS, Arista DCS, EOS, Cisco IOS, Cisco NX-OS, Cisco ASA, Cisco FWSM, Cisco CATOS, Cisco ACE, Citrix NetScaler, F5 BigIP, F5 Linerate, HP Comware, HP Procurve, Juniper JunOS, Juniper ScreenOS, Palo Alto Networks Firewalls, Riverbed Steelhead, Riverbed CMC.

Network devices can be scanned using SSH like normal linux nodes. We have configuration parsers that support the scanning of a wide range of network devices straight out of the box. An SSH connection manager can also be used to scan network devices. Refer to the linux connection manager deployment examples above.

Databases

Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle, Postgres.

Databases are scanned using the Windows connection manager which will connect to databases using ODBC. The relevant database drivers will need to be installed on the connection manager virtual machine. Refer to the Windows connection manager deployment examples above.

Cloud Apps and Services

Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure, CloudFlare, Salesforce.

Cloud apps are scanned using the SSH connection manager. Refer to the linux connection manager deployment examples above.
