Agent

The Browser Security Plus agent is a lightweight software application that is installed in computers which are managed using Browser Security Plus. It is installed automatically in the computers in a LAN. It helps to complete various tasks that are initiated in the Browser Security Plus server. For example, if you want to disable a Chrome extension from a computer in your network, you can make that the required settings for this task in the Browser Security Plus server. The agent replicates these settings and ensures that the task is completed effectively.

The agent also updates the Browser Security Plus server with the status of extensions that are already installed and those installed from the server. It checks the Browser Security Plus server periodically for instructions related to tasks and completes the same. The agent contacts the server every time the IP of the system changes.
