All client devices that have been added to ESET Security Management Center are shown here and are divided into groups. Each device is assigned to a single static group. Clicking on a group from the list (on the left) will display the members (clients) of this group in the right pane.

Unmanaged computers icon_unmanaged (clients on the network that do not have the ESET Management Agent or an ESET security product installed) usually appear in the Lost & found group. The status of a client that is shown in the ESMC Web Console is independent from the settings of the ESET security products on the client. That is why even if a certain status is not displayed on the client, it is still reported to the ESMC Web Console. You can drag and drop clients to move them between groups.

Computers, devices and groups actions

You can use the context menu (gear icon gear_icon) next to an existing group to create a new Static or Dynamic group, create a New task, or select from other available actions.

Click button Add New and select:

icon_computer Computers - You can add computers to the selected static group.

mobile_default Mobile devices - You can add mobile devices to the selected static group.

update_default Synchronize via directory server - You can run Static Group Synchronization task.

Click a device to open a new menu with actions available for that device. You can also select the check box next to a device and click the Actions button on the bottom bar. The Action menu will display different options depending on the type of device. Refer to the Icon legend for details about different icon types and statues. Click the number of alerts in the Alerts column to see the list of alerts in the computer details section.

Filtering the view

There are different ways to filter your view:

Standard filter: To add filtering criteria, click Add filter and select item(s) from the list. Enter the search string(s) into the filter field(s). Active filters are highlighted in blue.

You can filter by severity using the status icons: validation-status-icon-error red - Errors, validation-status-icon-warning yellow - Warnings, icon_success green - OK and icon_unmanaged gray - Unmanaged computers. The severity icon represents the current status of your ESET product on a particular client computer. You can use a combination of these icons by turning them on or off. For example, to see only the computers with warnings, leave only the validation-status-icon-warning yellow icon selected (the rest of the icons must be deselected). To see both, validation-status-icon-warning warnings and validation-status-icon-error errors, leave only these two icons on.

Click Add filter > Product Category and using the drop-down menu, you can select the types of devices to be displayed.

oAll Devices - select this option from the drop-down menu to see all the client computers again, without limiting (filtering) displayed clients. You can use a combination of filtering options when narrowing down the view.
