About client-side action requirements and alternatives

Endpoint security (client-side) access policy items require installation of client components. Access Policy Manager uses ActiveX controls or browser plug-ins to collect information about client systems.
Not all clients support browser add-ons or allow browser software installation. For these clients, the server-side security process can inspect HTTP headers to gather information about the client operating system and browser type. The server-side Client Capability action determines whether a client is capable of running client-side actions.
