Our business will be implementing an FNMS solution shortly. One question that came up though was having the beacon server publicly accessibly - that way even devices not on our network/VPN would be able to report back. It was asked what security there was to ensure that nobody could upload random data to our beacon. The consultant said it would only accept information from computers there were already in our Active Directory. Is this accurate? We are planning on integrating it with our Active Directory but it was difficult for me to find information regarding security measures for publicly accessible beacon servers. There was a few forum posts but seemed like there was nothing specific. If it does only accept computers from our Active Directory how can it tell? By the name or some other property? Thanks.
