Endpoint compliance configurations

Endpoint compliance configurations define agent and scan parameters for hosts and users. Hosts can be required to download an agent and undergo a scan, permitted access with no scan or denied access. The endpoint compliance configuration that is used for a particular host is determined by the pairing of an endpoint compliance configuration and a user/host profile within an endpoint compliance policy.

When a host is evaluated, the host, user and connection location are compared to each endpoint compliance policy starting with the first policy in the list. When a policy is found where the host and user data and the connection location match the user/host profile in the policy, that policy is assigned. The endpoint compliance configuration contained within that policy determines the security treatment received by the host.
