Health Agent

Health Agents are components of centrally managed endpoint security suites. Health Agents enforce policies and execute client-side tasks such as the deployment, configuration and updating of other suite components. These other components can include the personal firewall, the antimalware engine, the antiphishing protection, the data loss prevention agent, the disk encryption agent, the network access control agent as well as other forms of endpoint protection which different security vendors make available in their product suites.

The OPSWAT Device Compliance Module detects Health Agents from a variety of security vendors.
