Liongard Smart Start FAQs

  • I don't have an on-premises Active Directory controller in some of my environments. Can I still use Liongard?

Certainly! If your Active Directory instance is hosted in a data center, or if you are using Azure Active Directory or JumpCloud, you can still deploy Inspectors that will return all the pertinent data on those systems. As long as there is a persistent VPN into your hosted environment, the Active Directory inspector will work and should not have a noticeable impact on network performance, even in low bandwidth setups.

  • I manage some environments that are serverless. Is there any need to use Liongard for these customers?

Of course! Because we provide you with a On-Demand Agent agent that works with any cloud-based inspection, there are usually multiple Inspectors that can be deployed in this scenario.

A few examples of Inspectors that can be deployed in server-less environments are Cisco Umbrella, Identity Monitoring, Internet Domain/DNS, Microsoft 365, many A/V solutions, and many other Inspectors as well. For a full list of our System Inspectors, visit our System Inspector Summary document.

Clicking into the documentation for any specific System Inspector will tell you if it can be run from our On-Demand Agent.

If you need to inspect systems that require an On-Premises Agent (such as a firewall or switch) but there is no server to do so, you can deploy a Self-Hosted Agent in your datacenter to facilitate these inspections. See our Agents Overview documentation for more information.

  • Do I have to create a domain admin service account for every customer?

No. Follow our Least Privileges for Windows-based On-Premises Agents and Inspectors documentation to avoid using a domain administrator account for your On-Premises Liongard Agents.

If all of your System Inspectors for an environment can be deployed using the On-Demand Agent, there is no need for a domain admin service account.
