Jump to solution
When you first deploy the DLP Endpoint agent and apply the DLP "Windows Client Configuration" policy to a workstations (Win 7 / Windows 10) is a reboot required for the agent and policy to take affect on the workstation and it begin to have the availability to trigger incidents?

Hello and thank you for posting here!

For initial deployments of DLP, a reboot is not required for the Windows Client Configuration policy to take effect. There are some settings within the Windows Client Configuration policy that do require a DLP Agent restart (which a reboot is the easiest way to accomplish that). Those settings are indicated in the policy with an asterisk (*).

If you're upgrading the DLP Agent from an older version, a reboot is often necessary since drivers are being updated. However, that is not directly related to settings that are in the Windows Client Configuration policy.
