The ERA Agent is protected by a built-in self-defense mechanism. This feature provides the following:
|•||Protection against modification of ERA Agent registry entries (HIPS)|
|•||Files that belong to ERA agent cannot be modified, replaced, deleted or altered (HIPS)|
|•||ERA Agent Process cannot be killed|
|•||The ERA Agent Service cannot be stopped, paused, disabled, uninstalled or otherwise compromised|
Some of the protection is being taken care of by the HIPS feature, which is part of your ESET security product (for example ESET Endpoint Security).
NOTE: To ensure full protection of the ERA Agent, HIPS must be enabled on a client computer.
Password protected setup
In addition to self-defense, you can password protect access to the ERA Agent (available for Windows only). When a password is used, the ERA Agent cannot be uninstalled or repaired unless the correct password is provided. To set an ERA Agent password you need to create a policy for ERA Agent.
