Password Protection:

  • The client access control section of a profile lets you set password protection for CCS and the communication client on an endpoint.
     
  • Once set, users will need to enter a password to access important areas of the interfaces.
     
  • This stops users from opening the clients locally and making changes to important tasks and settings.

Local Configuration:

  • Under normal conditions, Endpoint Manager checks managed devices every 5 minutes to make sure the local settings match the profile settings. It will reinstate the profile settings if it discovers any deviation, undoing any local changes.
  • The client access control section lets you disable the process described above. This means local configuration changes will not get overruled by the profile settings. This is useful if you want the freedom to configure devices locally.

You must enable password protection if you want to enable local configuration.

Process in brief:

  • Login to ITarian
     
  • Click 'Applications' > 'Endpoint Manager'
     
  • Click 'Configuration Templates' > 'Profiles'
     
  • Select a Windows profile
     
  • Click 'Add Profile Section' > 'Client Access Control'
     
  • Choose the client types you want to password protect
     
  • Choose whether to require a domain admin password or a custom password
     
  • Choose whether or not you want local settings to over-rule profile settings
     
  • Click 'Save'

Process in detail

  • Login to ITarian
     
  • Click 'Applications' > 'Endpoint Manager'
     
  • Click 'Configuration Templates' > 'Profiles'
     
  • Open the profile that you want to configure
  • Click 'Add Profile Section' > 'Client Access Control':

  • Apply password protection settings for - Specify which clients you want to password protect.
     
    • Comodo Client - Security - Password protects the settings interface, and the 'Tasks' interfaces for antivirus, firewall, HIPS, and containment.

      Users can still run some limited tasks. These include run an on-demand virus scan, open the virtual desktop, and run programs in the container.
       
    • Communication Client - Password protects important settings, including the ability to configure a proxy for the client to connect to Endpoint Manager.
       
  • Require Password - Select the type of password required to access CCS and/or CC:
     
    • Computer administrator - Admins can access the local interfaces by providing their domain admin password. If the admin is already logged into the machine then they can open the interface without a password.
       
    • Custom password - Specify a unique string to access the CCS / CC interfaces.

                   If you select ‘Custom password’ but not ‘Computer administrator’, then even admins will need to enter the custom password to access the clients.

                  The tables below summarize how the passwords work together for admins and regular users:

                                           Admin logged - in
 Admin password     enabled         Yes                    No           Yes      
 Custom  password   enabled   Yes  Yes  No
 Requirements  No password  needed Custom password required  No password needed

 

                     Admin not logged-in / Standard user logged-in
 Admin password   enabled                                 Yes     NO                   Yes              
 Custom password   enabled  Yes  Yes   No
 Requirements  Either        password    Custom password   required  Admin password required

 

  • Enable local user to override profile configuration - Endpoint Manager will not reverse local settings that are different to those in the endpoint's profile. You must enable password protection if you want to use this option.
     
  • Click 'Save' to apply your changes to the profile.
