The Full Disk Encryption Agent is the ZENworks Agent module that is responsible for enforcing Disk Encryption policy settings on managed devices. Because it is a module, it can be installed, enabled, disabled, and uninstalled without affecting the other capabilities provided by the ZENworks Agent. The following operational states are possible for the Full Disk Encryption Agent:
Installed and enabled: The Full Disk Encryption Agent is installed and can enforce a Disk Encryption policy assigned to the device.
Installed and disabled: The Full Disk Encryption Agent is installed but its drivers are not loaded. Therefore it cannot enforce a Disk Encryption policy assigned to the device.
Uninstalled: The Full Disk Encryption Agent is not installed on the device.
By default, the Full Disk Encryption Agent is installed and enabled on managed devices if ZENworks Full Disk Encryption is activated in either license mode or evaluation mode. If you want to change the operational state of the agent, see the instructions in ZENworks Discovery, Deployment, and Retirement Reference.
