Create a Policy for ESET Management Agent connection interval

In this example, we are going to create a new policy for the ESET Management Agent connection interval. This value should be adjusted based on the size of your infrastructure by using policies after you install ESET PROTECT and deploy ESET Management Agents and ESET endpoint products to client machines.

Create a New Static Group. Add a new policy by clicking Policies. Click Actions at the bottom and select New.
