Using Smart Protection Services

After the smart protection environment has been properly set up, agents are ready to use File Reputation Services and Web Reputation Services. You can also begin to configure Smart Feedback settings.


For instructions on setting up the smart protection environment, see Setting Up Smart Protection Services.

To benefit from protection provided by File Reputation Services, agents must use the scan method called smart scan. For details about smart scan and how to enable smart scan on agents, see Scan Method Types.

To allow Security Agents to use Web Reputation Services, configure web reputation policies. For details, see Web Reputation Policies.


Settings for scan methods and web reputation policies are granular. Depending on your requirements, you can configure settings that will apply to all agents or configure separate settings for individual agents or agent groups.

For instructions on configuring Smart Feedback, see Smart Feedback.
