Select the default endpoint policy
Assign a default policy to users outside the network (roaming users) who are not synchronized to the cloud service as follows:
1.
Select a Policy from the drop-down list.
2.
Click Save.
If you do not select a default policy, any non-synchronized user is auto-generated in the cloud service with their NTLM ID as reported by the endpoint client. The newly-created user becomes visible in the system within approximately 10 minutes. In the meantime, they are browsing anonymously and are reported as such.
Once the user is visible, you can assign them a different policy on the Account > Settings > End Users page, or assign them to groups on the Account > Settings > Groups page. Reports will also include the correct user information.
Find and update deployment settings
Use the WSCONTEXT code when deploying the endpoint client to Windows machines via GPO. More information about using the code can be found in the deployment instructions (Windows operating system users).
Before you can download the installation file or enable deployment from the cloud, you must define an anti-tampering password to be used to stop the endpoint service or uninstall the endpoint software. The password is automatically linked to any deployments of the endpoint client.
 
Important 
To set the password:
1.
Click Set Anti-Tampering Password.
2.
3.
Click Submit.
The endpoint client has a number of key protections against tampering, which should prevent the majority of end users from uninstalling or deleting it, even if they have local administrator rights:
