A server can be protected by Security Center only after the Security Center agent is installed on the server. This topic describes how the Security Center agent works, information about the agent processes, and supported operating systems.
How the Security Center agent works
The Security Center agent automatically sends connection information about the agent to the Security Center server in real time.
If the Security Center server does not receive information from the agent in 12 hours, the Security Center server determines that the server on which the agent runs is offline. The Security Center server then changes the security status of the server to Unprotected in the console.
rootuser is used to run the processes of the Security Center agent on a Linux server and the
systemuser on a Windows server.
