Passive Scan

Can you set up a client task assignment by just installing an agent on an airgapped system?

Re: Passive Scan

Hi @JackAndrei ,

Thankyou for reaching us on Community!

I see that title of your post says "passive scan". I believe you are trying to Perform OnDemand scan on client machine. 
If yes, you will need to install Endpoint security platform(aka common) and endpoint security threat prevention on the client machine.

Once that is done, considering that the client machine is communicating to EPO, you can now create a client task to scan a machine.

When you say "passive scan " i believe you are referring to periodic OnDemand scan that doesn't affect resource of the machine. This can be done in 2 ways :
1. Schedule an OnDemand Scan to run only when system is idle
2. Schedule an OnDemand Scan to run anyway, but with limited CPU consumption (you can set maximum CPU consumption that the scan can take anywhere from 25%-99% ).

I hope you find this helpful.
