agent presence

A security toolset that is built into Intel AMT. This toolset enables management applications to configure Intel AMT devices to monitor for the presence of software agents, such as antivirus and firewall applications that run on the Intel AMT system platform. The management application configures the Intel AMT device with timers set to detect when the software agent initializes and periodically transmits presence signals. Using this toolset, IT technicians can identify computers with disabled or uninstalled software agents and take appropriate actions.
