Number of sensors to install

Copper Contributor

On a small 40 user network is one sensor on a DC sufficient or should the sensor be installed on multiple domain controllers?

It's not a matter of load for that matter, it's a matter of coverage.

If you have only one DC in the network that works, then you need to deploy only to it.

if you have many DCs, all of them should be deployed with a sensor to get good coverage.

Hi Eric,


No matter how many users you've, it matters how many DC's you've because of Azure ATP sensor reads events locally, so every DC server needs a sensor.
