Zero-footprint inventory with Snow Inventory

2018-09-19

The Snow Inventory Agents are part of the Snow Inventory solution. They are used for inventory of Windows, Linux, macOS, and Unix computers. The agents scan the computers and save the collected data to encrypted files, which are sent to a Snow Inventory endpoint (Snow Inventory Server or Snow Extender).

The agent can be installed locally on each computer, or be used as a zero-footprint inventory solution with no locally installed agent on the computer. In the zero-footprint inventory scenarios, each computer is inventoried using the Snow Inventory Agent as a remotely executed command.
