Configuring an Agent

An agent policy defines exactly what an agent can or cannot do. With Ivanti Security Controls Agent you can create as many different agent policies as is needed. This provides a great deal of flexibility, enabling you to assign different agent policies to different machines in your organization.

All agent policies are configured on the Ivanti Security Controls console and then either "push installed" to the desired target machines or installed manually. An agent policy can be configured with any combination of the following capabilities:

  • Patch management tasks
  • Application Control
  • Asset management tasks
  • Power management tasks

For detailed information, see Creating a New Agent Policy in the Security Controls Help.
