About endpoint security client-side items

Endpoint security is a strategy for ensuring that a client device does not present a security risk before it is granted a remote access connection to the network.
Endpoint security verifies that desktop antivirus and firewall software is in place, systems are patched, keyloggers or other dangerous processes are not running, and sensitive data is not left behind in web caches and other vulnerable locations.
Configuring endpoint security (client-side) access policy items enables verification actions and other security-enhancing actions:
  • On a Linux, Mac, or Windows client, client-side items can confirm that software meets requirements and can confirm the presence or absence of files and processes.
  • On a Windows client, client-side items can confirm the registry, open a protected workspace, or perform cache and session control.
