Creating and Configuring New Client-side Host Checker Policies

You can create a variety of policies through the Host Checker client that check for antivirus software, firewalls, malware, spyware, and specific operating systems from a wide variety of industry leaders. You can also create checks for custom third-party DLLs, ports, processes, files, registry keys and the NetBIOS name, MAC addresses, or certificate of the client machine.

Note: We recommend you check for multiple MAC addresses in a single policy instead of creating a policy for each MAC address. If you create policies for each MAC address, unexpected results may occur if there are more than 100 policies due to browser cookie size limitations.

When creating the policies, you must define the policy name, and either enable predefined rules, or create custom rules that run the specified checks. Optionally, you can specify how Host Checker should evaluate multiple rules within a single policy.

To create a standard client-side policy:

  1. In the admin console, choose Authentication > Endpoint Security > Host Checker.
  2. Under Policies, clickNew.
  3. Enter a name in the Policy Name field and then click Continue. (Users see this name on the Host Checker remediation page if you enable custom instructions for this policy.)
  4. Create one or more rules to associate with the policy.
  5. Specify how Host Checker should evaluate multiple rules within the policy.
  6. (Recommended) Specify remediation options for users whose computers do not meet the requirements specified in the policy. (If you do not create remediation instructions and the policy fails, your users will not know why they cannot access their resources.)
  7. Implement the policy at the realm, role, or resource policy levels.
