Agent Client

The agent client is a multi-function program that safeguards an end-user's computer. It will track the status of the machine and perform actions that are configured by the program administrator. It can:

  • Perform periodic scans to detect all missing patches and product levels
    A patch scan is automatically triggered by any of the following patching or system events:
    • Immediately before and after a patch deployment
    • Prior to staging patch content for a deployment
    • Every day (if neither of the previous two triggering events have occurred)
    • A reboot of the machine (if the three day cadence has been missed)
    A patch scan can also be initiated manually using either the agent client program or by issuing an agent command from a command prompt.
  • Deploy any missing patches and product levels in order to close security holes in your software

How to Navigate the Agent Client Program

Navigating the program is easy. You begin on the home page, which is your starting point for all actions. The home page contains a number of different tiles. You can click any of the tiles to view the associated data and perform related tasks.

A limited version of the agent client program is displayed if you happen to launch the program while it is undergoing a software update. If this occurs, simply wait a minute or two and then relaunch the program.
