When an outbreak occurs, enforce outbreak prevention measures to respond to and contain the outbreak. Configure prevention settings carefully because incorrect configuration may cause unforeseen network issues.
Do not allow outbreak prevention to remain in effect indefinitely. To block or deny access to certain files, folders, or ports indefinitely, modify endpoint and network settings directly instead of using Apex One.
To configure Apex One to notify you during an outbreak, go to Administration > Notifications > Outbreak.
The outbreak prevention measures you selected display in a new window.
A check mark appears on endpoints applying outbreak prevention measures.
Apex One records the following events in the system event logs:
Server events (initiating outbreak prevention and notifying agents to enable outbreak prevention)
Security Agent event (enabling outbreak prevention)
