Critical software agents are also lost when firmware is flashed, the device is re-imaged, the hard-drive is replaced, or if the OS is reinstalled. All of these scenarios create "dark endpoints" which fracture visibility and open up unacceptable vulnerabilities to insider threats, malicious attacks or other risks affecting business operations.
