The FlexNet Inventory Agent and Flexera Beacon can now encrypt NDI, DISCO, MMI, SWACC, ACTIVITY and BSTAT file data

IT Asset Management version 2023 R2.1

The FlexNet Inventory Agent and FlexNet Beacon now have the capability to encrypt the data contained within the inventory (NDI), discovery (DISCO), usage (MMI), client access (SWACC), activity (ACTIVITY) and beacon status (BSTAT) files they generate. This capability encrypts the inventory data on the machine hosting the beacon and helps prevent inventory files from being viewed or modified by malicious actors.

This requires a setting to be enabled, which at present needs to be done on the customer’s behalf by Flexera. Contact Flexera Support to enable this setting.

Another requirement is that ALL agents AND ALL beacons in the customer's environment must be upgraded to at least version 21.0.
