Coexist and Full Feature Security Agent Comparison

The following tables compare the features available for Security Agents configured in coexist mode and full feature set mode.

Important:

When deploying settings to domains that contain both coexist mode and fully-featured Security Agents, Security Agents can only receive settings applicable to the configured mode. If you deploy Data Loss Prevention policies to a mixed domain, only the Security Agents in fully-featured mode can apply the policies. The coexist mode Security Agents ignore the Data Loss Prevention policy settings.
