To facilitate connectivity with devices, our software agent, Leaf, is installed on hardware and, in turn, Leaf securely connects to Canopy in the cloud. Leaf ensures effortless device connections through a range of flexible deployment capabilities. Once on the device, Leaf centralizes software updates for both the agent and peripheral devices across your network. All communication is originated from the device with no need to open ports or configure inbound firewall rules.
Leaf is lightweight and Operating System agnostic, running out-of-the-box on Linux, Windows, and MacOS.
Out of the box Leaf plug-ins enable a broad range of capabilities that help you understand at a granular level what's happening on each device.
You can write your own leaf plug-ins to monitor anything on your system. Leaf supports several methods to communicate with a local installation of Leaf, and back to the Canopy enterprise. When you develop your leaf plug-in, you are in complete control - you choose the language, installation and running technique, data packages, and reporting frequency.
Canopy provides a REST API for all interactions with the platform. The API allows a customer to perform the full operation set that Canopy offers. The API is controlled by the same RBAC security model that the Canopy Portal adheres to, so Admins can control exactly what API users can see and do with the platform.
Canopy seamlessly integrates with external systems, either as a data source or as a data recipient. This flexibility ensures smooth data exchanges between platforms, whether they are from the device or another software app.
The thing that attracts me to Canopy is the ability to have access to so much data – our CRM and RMM didn’t talk to each other before, now we’ve unlocked this whole new world to make better decisions and automations...
