Isolate computer from network

The Isolate computer from network task isolates the selected computers from the network and all connections, except those needed for correct operation of ESET products, will be blocked. The allowed connections include the following:

computer obtains an IP address

communication of ekrn.exe, ESET Management Agent, ESET Enterprise Inspector Agent

login to a domain

warning

Warning

Network isolation is compatible only with ESET security products (Endpoint Antivirus/Security and server security products) version 7.2 and later.

Network isolation will likely interrupt the normal operation of the computers and you should use it in emergency cases only (e.g. if a severe security issue is identified on a managed computer). You can end the isolation with a client task.

To create the task, click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task or click the desired client device in Computers and select New Task.
