Manage Agent Tampering Protection
Agent tampering protection allows you to protect the Traps agents running on your endpoints. For flexible, granular control over agent tampering protection, you can configure agent tampering protection for individual Traps components including Traps services, processes, registry keys, and files.
When enabled, Traps restricts access to the agent components so that they cannot be modified, stopped, or tampered with in any way.
- Create a new agent settings rule.Select SettingsAgentSettings and then Add a new rule.
- Select Agent Tampering Protection and
then enable one or more of the options:
- Enable Services protection—Protect Traps services including Traps, Traps Local Analysis Service, and Traps Reporting Service.
- Enable Processes protection—Protect Traps services such as Cyserver.exe, CyveraConsole.exe, CyveraService.exe, and tlaworker.exe.
- Enable Files protection—Protect Traps system files stored in %Program Files%\Palo Alto Networks\Traps and %ProgramData%\Cyvera (or C:\ Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Cyvera on Windows XP).
- Enable Registry Values protection—Protect all Traps registry values stored in HKLM\SYSTEM\Cyvera.
- (Optional) Add Conditions to
the rule. By default, a new rule does not contain any conditions.To specify a condition, select the Conditions tab, select the condition in the Conditions list, and then Add it to the Selected Conditions list. Repeat to add more conditions as needed. To add a condition to the Conditions list, see Define Activation Conditions for a Rule on Windows Endpoints.
- (Optional) Define the Target
Objects to which to apply the agent settings rule. By default,
a new rule applies to all objects in your organization.To define a subset of target objects, select the Objects tab, and then enter one or more Users, Computers, Groups, Organizational Unit, or Existing Endpoints in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units or identifies existing endpoints from previous communication messages.
- (Optional) Review the rule name and description.
The ESM Console automatically generates the rule name and description
based on the rule details but permits you to change these fields,
if needed.To override the autogenerated name, select the Name tab, clear the Activate automatic description option, and then enter a rule name and description of your choice.
- Save the agent settings rule.Do either of the following:
After saving or applying a rule, you can return to the Settings page at any time to Delete or Deactivate the rule.
- Save the rule without activating it. This option is only available for inactive, cloned, or new rules. When you are ready to activate the rule, select the rule from the SettingsAgentSettings page and then click Activate.
- Apply the rule to activate it immediately.
