Working with network views

The different types of endpoints available in Control Center are grouped in the Network page by different network views. Each network view displays a specific type of network infrastructure, according to the endpoint type you want to manage.

To change the network view, go to the upper-left side of the Network page and click the views selector:

The following network views are available:

Computers and virtual machines

This view is designed for computers and virtual machines integrated in Active Directory, providing specific actions and filtering options for managing the computers in your network. If an Active Directory integration is available, the Active Directory tree is loaded, together with the corresponding endpoints.

While working in the Computers and Virtual Machines view, you can anytime synchronize the Control Center contents with your Active Directory using the resync.png Synchronize with Active Directory button from the Action Toolbar.

At the same time, all computers and virtual machines that are not integrated in Active Directory are grouped under Custom Groups. This folder may contain the following types of endpoints:

  • Computers and virtual machines available in your network outside Active Directory.

  • Virtual Machines from a virtualized infrastructure available in your network.

Important

Assigning policies to virtual machines from Computers and Virtual Machines view may be restricted by the GravityZone solution manager while configuring the vCenter Server or a Xen Server in the Configuration > Virtualization Providers page. To find out more, refer to Installing Protection > GravityZone Installation and Setup chapter from the GravityZone Installation Guide.

Cloud Workloads

This view is specifically designed to display your virtualized infrastructure integrations. The filter options available in this view allow you to choose special criteria for displaying virtual environment entities.

You can view your Nutanix, VMware or Citrix virtual inventories in the left pane.

On the upper-side of the left pane you can also find the Views menu, allowing you to choose the virtual inventories display mode.

All virtual machines in your network that are not integrated in a virtual infrastructure are displayed under Custom Groups.

All containers and container hosts in your network are displayed under Containers.

Mobile devices

This view is exclusively designed for viewing and managing mobile devices available in your network, providing specific actions and filtering options.

In this specific view, you can display network entities by users or by devices.

The network pane displays your Active Directory tree structure, if available. In this case, all Active Directory users will appear in your network inventory, and also the mobile devices assigned to them.

Note

Active Directory user details are automatically loaded and cannot be changed.

Custom Groups contains all mobile device users that you have manually added to Control Center.

Finding items in Network Inventory

This section shows different ways of how to easily find the desired entities from network inventory.

Introduction

The Network Inventory contains your company's network objects such as computers, servers, virtual machines and mobile devices. For a large network, finding the necessary information is rather difficult. You will learn hereinafter how to make use of Control Center's filtering options to find what you are looking for.

The service selector

Endpoints are grouped under each available protection service:

  • Computersand Virtual Machines (Security for Endpoints)

  • Cloud Workload (Security for Virtualized Environments)

  • Mobile Devices (Security for Mobile Devices).

To view endpoints under the desired category, select the corresponding service the from the services selector in the upper-right corner of the page.

Sorting

To sort data by a specific column, click the column headers. For example, if you want to order computers by name, click the Name heading. If you click the heading again, the computers will be displayed in reverse order.
