1.3 Security Policy Updates

The Security Client is installed in managed mode or unmanaged mode.

If your Security Client is running in managed mode, updated security policies are automatically distributed to the Security Client when it checks in with the ZENworks Endpoint Security Management system. Check-in occurs automatically whenever you start your computer or manually whenever you initiate a check in.

If your Security Client is running in unmanaged mode, your administrator must distribute updated security policies to your computer. Depending on the distribution methods available to your administrator, this might require you to receive the updated policy and manually copy it to the appropriate Security Client directory.

Instructions for manually initiating a policy update (managed mode) and manually copying a policy update to the Security Client directory (unmanaged mode) are provided in Section 5.0, Policy Updates.
