Deploying the Assessment Tool to Windows Endpoints

The assessment tool scans Windows endpoints for file-based threat indicators from global intelligence sources.

If deployed correctly, the tool automatically collects and uploads data to Trend Micro Vision One for in-depth analysis and reporting. The tool supports the following platforms:

  • Windows 7 and 10

  • Windows Server 2016 and 2019

Endpoints must be connected to the Internet so the tool can upload data to the Trend Micro Vision One. Trend Micro recommends adding the following URLs and ports to the safe list.

The assessment report identifies unknown threats and helps determine if your organization is affected by the latest threat campaigns. If no indicators are matched, the report provides links to intelligence reports to help you stay on top of the constantly evolving threat landscape.
