This section describes the steps necessary to install Carbon Black App Control agents on computers. It also describes how to upgrade or uninstall agents, view the details agents provide to the Carbon Black App Control Console and manage operating system updates on agent-managed systems.

Computer configuration tasks include choosing the method for assigning each computer to a security policy, adding installation packages for agents and rules files to the server, downloading the Carbon Black App Control Agent from a server to an endpoint, and installing the agent on client computers. Security policies are described in Creating and Configuring Policies.
