The Security Client enforces security policies created by your ZENworks Endpoint Security Management administrator. Security policies are a collection of security settings that determine the following on your computer:
The wireless networks to which you can connect.
The firewall configuration, such as allowed ports, protocols, network addresses, and applications.
The communication hardware (Bluetooth*, 1394 FireWire*, Serial/Parallel) that is active.
The storage devices (CD/DVD, floppy drives, removable storage devices) that are active.
The locations (network environments) in which a VPN connection is required.
The hard drive folders that provide data encryption of files, and whether or not removable storage devices (such as USB thumb drives) are encrypted.
Your administrator determines the security policies assigned to you (or your computer) and distributes the policies to your computer. The Security Client enforces the settings and provides reports to the administrator.
