Agent Settings

  • Last updated on

These settings apply to the Barracuda Content Shield (BCS) Suite, if you have it deployed on endpoint machines.

Agent Security and Utilization

  • Tamper Proof: When set to ON, this feature prevents the user from removing the BCS agent from the endpoint. This requires creating an Agent Password, which must be used when uninstalling the agent at the endpoint. You will not be able to uninstall the agent on the endpoint if you set this feature to ON and do not have the password.  However, by setting this option to OFF, you can bypass the Tamper Proof feature and uninstall the agent on the endpoint without the password. See Preventing Users from Uninstalling the Barracuda Content Shield Suite for details on how to use this feature.
  • Max CPU Usage: Configure the maximum CPU resource you want to allow the BCS agent to use on the endpoint.

Agent Update

Click Apply Agent Updates to select how you want to apply updates to the BCS Suite on endpoint machines. Note that Automatic updates only apply to Windows machines.

  • Manually
  • Automatically When Devices Reboot
  • Automatically at a Specific Time – When you select this option, additional fields are presented for specifying the time at which agent updates will be initiated. The selection applies to the device's local time zone.

Define All Local Domains

Best Practice: If you are using the BCS agent with a DNS proxy solution, do the following:

I n the LOCAL DOMAINS text box, add any local (internal) domains/hostnames that should be resolved by the DNS server configured on the endpoint computer, instead of the DNS server selected by BCS Plus.
