Enabling Malware Protection on Cloud Agent

To start collecting information on your endpoints, you need to install the Malware Protection on your asset. For that, first, you must enable the Malware Protection for the Cloud Agent profile.

1. Navigate to the Cloud Agent module > Agents and identify the agent that has EDR enabled on it.

2. You can edit the default Configuration profile to the agent. Once the configuration profile is downloaded on the asset, you can view this asset in the EDR module > Assets tab.
Since the Malware Protection is not yet activated for this agent, the AV status is shown as blank.

3. In the Cloud Agent > Configuration Profiles tab and open the profile to edit it. Go to the EDR tab and enable Malware Protection for this profile.
