About Client-Side Capability

The Client-Side Capability action determines whether the client is fully capable of running endpoint security (client-side) actions. The Client-Side Capability action includes two branches.
Branch
Description
Full
Indicates that the user is connecting with a client that has full client-side check support.
fallback
Indicates that the user is connecting with a client that does not fully support client-side checks.
This action can be very useful as one of the first checks in an access policy. The
Full
branch can include the required client-side checks for those clients that are capable, while the fallback branch can lead to access policy branches for other clients.
This figure shows an example in which the Client-Side Capability action is used to verify that the client is capable of running a client-side check before running the client-side check for anti-spyware software.

In practice, an access policy would usually include a logon action, an authentication action, and other actions.
