Over the years, we’ve iterated and refined these devices, incorporating new technologies and software as they have become available.
Today, we continue to use Acorns as part of our information security and knowledge management assessments. We typically install multiple Acorns on-site for the duration of security engagements so we can collect and analyze data over the course of a few weeks or a few months.
The latest devices include a small screen that displays basic information, making it easier for our clients to monitor the devices and to assist in remote troubleshooting. These devices are quite small and don’t interfere with network activity when running on-site in a client’s data center.
At any given time, several Acorns are deployed on-site at clients’ offices around the world. Our Acorn Fleet Map serves as a dashboard for us to check the health of all of deployed Acorns.
