Hide or Restrict Access to the Traps Console
By default, a user can access the Traps Console to view information about the current status of the endpoint, changes to the security policy, and any security events. When a security event is triggered, the user also receives a notification about the event. The notification includes the application name, the publisher, and a description of the exploit prevention or restriction rule that triggered the notification.
You can create an agent settings rule to change the accessibility of the console and specify whether to hide notifications from users.
- Create a new agent settings rule.Select SettingsAgentSettings, and then Add a new rule.
- Define user visibility and access for the endpoints.Select User Availability & Access and then select one or more of the following options:
- Hide tray icon—Hide the tray icon which Traps otherwise adds to the notification area (system tray) on the endpoint.
- Disable access to the Traps console—Disable the ability to open the console.
- Hide Traps user notifications—Hide notifications that Traps otherwise displays when the agent encounters a prevention or notification event.
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 this step to add more conditions, as needed. You can also define new Conditions.
Define the Target
Objects to which to apply the rule.To define a smaller subset of target objects, select the Objects tab, and then enter one or more AD Users, AD Computers, AD Groups, AD Organizational Unit, Existing Endpoints, or Existing Groups in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units. The ESM Console also offers autocompletion as you type for existing endpoints and existing virtual groups.
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.
