Security Agent Independent Mode Privilege

Grant certain users the Security Agent Independent mode privilege if agent-server events are interfering with the users' tasks. For example, a user who frequently gives presentations can enable Independent mode before starting a presentation to prevent the Apex One server from deploying Security Agent settings and initiating scans on the Security Agent.

When Security Agents are in Independent mode:

  • Security Agents do not send logs to the Apex One server, even if there is a functional connection between the server and agents.

  • The Apex One server does not initiate tasks and deploy Security Agent settings to the agents, even if there is functional connection between the server and agents.

  • Security Agents update components if they can connect to any of their update sources. Sources include the Apex One server, Update Agents, or a custom update source.
