Threat Detection Template

This template creates a configuration that checks if a threat is detected or the remote device has not been scanned recently. It can be found in the COMPLIANCE CHECK category when filtered for REMOTE platform.

If a threat is detected or the remote device has not been scanned recently, you can choose between two actions:

  • Denies access if a threat is detected or the device has not been scanned recently.
  • Displays a message in the session if a threat is detected or the device has not been scanned recently.

deviceTRUST requires some simple but essential configuration steps to be performed to enable the template for your remoting and DaaS environments. We will guide you step-by-step through simple deviceTRUST configuration steps to enable the template within your remoting or DaaS environment.

We will perform the following steps:

  1. Step 1: Prerequisites
  2. Step 2: Contexts
  3. Step 3: Actions

Step 1: Prerequisites

If the required deviceTRUST components (Agent, Console, Client Extension and License) are not yet installed, please visit the Getting Started for Remoting and DaaS guide and complete step 1 to 5 and then continue here with step 2 below.

Step 2: Contexts

The template has imported the following contexts:

Context Description Customizations
Threat Detection Defines if the remote device has been recently scanned and has no current threats. None
Note:
  • If a context is not needed, it can be deactivated or deleted. In addition, the corresponding task sequence within the relevant action must be deleted too.

Step 3: Actions

The template includes a notifying action that displays a message to the user about a context status and an enforcement action that actively controls access to the session. By default, only the notifying action is enabled and the enforcement action is disabled.

Action Description Default State Customizations
Threat Detection - Conditional Access - Enforcement Denies access if a threat is detected or the device has not been scanned recently. Deactivated None
Threat Detection - Conditional Access - Notification Displays a message in the session if a threat is detected or the device has not been scanned recently. Activated None
Note:
  • If both actions have been disabled, the contexts will still be created.
  • If both actions have been activated, the deny access task will take priority over the displaying of the notification message.
