Protect Cloud Agents Prerequisites

Version 7



    If you are using Protect Cloud synchronization, you have the ability to install a Shavlik Protect Agent from the cloud. This is particularly helpful if you have target machines that are away from the corporate network and unable to contact the console.




    There are two basics steps to a cloud-based installation:

    1. You (the adminstrator) must log on to the Protect Cloud service, create an agent key, and then email the key to the users of each target machine.
    2. The user on each target machine will follow the email instructions to install and register the agent.

    If you want to learn more about this feature, please refer tour Quick Start Guide about Agents, to the Best Practises guide or to the e-learning videos on our website.
