Agents are deployed directly on a computer. Appliances are used in VMware vSphere environments to provide agentless protection. They are not available with Deep Security as a Service., the Deep Security Manager, or users. They also include errors that may occur during normal operation of the Deep Security system.

  • Record:Deep Security Manager will record this type of event and list them on the Events & Reports > Events > System Events page.
  • Forward: Deep Security Manager will forward this type of event to a remote computer, if you have configured System Event notifications on the Administration > System Settings > SIEM or Administration > System Settings > SNMP page.

For a list of all possible system events, see System event descriptions. Events are kept for a period of time, which can be set on the Administration > System Settings > Storage page.
