Agent's Discovery of Data Interfaces Scan

    Hi Community,

    We found out that Agent's Discovery of Data Interfaces uses NT AUTHORITY. Is it normal?



    Thank you in advance!

    Marvin,
    The agents are installed with a local admin credential.  When it creates the services SecureSphere Agent service, it is set to run with NT Authority, so all the agent activity is run with NT Authority permissions, including the data interface discovery.  This is normal.
