Discovering Cloud Managed Endpoint Security

Online Help uses a modular architecture to deliver only the services that you require. The components include:

  • The Management Console enables you to manage your deployed services.

  • The agents that are installed on computers can support multiple products and communicate pertinent data to the .cloud infrastructure.

    The agent installs on a computer as part of a selected product.

  • Products plug into the agent on computers to deliver the services that you want.

The online Help system opens to a topic that is relevant to your location within the Management Console. Once open, the search engine suggests help topics and the procedures that may be useful to you.
