Host Integrity check

The Host Integrity policy settings that you set up are implemented by the Symantec Agent running a Host Integrity check. During the Host Integrity check, the Agent follows the requirements set in the Host Integrity policy to examine the registry keys, running applications, or date and size of a file. If required software, patches and hot fixes have not been installed on the computer, the Agent can be set to connect to an update server to download and install the required software.
