Cb Defense: How to Enable Controlled Uninstall (Password Protected Uninstall)

Cb Defense: How to Enable Controlled Uninstall (Password Protected Uninstall)

Environment

  • Cb defense Web Console: January '18 release and later
  • Cb Defense Sensor: 3.1.x
  • Mac OS: All Supported Versions
  • Windows OS: All Supported Versions

Objective

  • Enable Controlled Uninstall ( Password Protected Uninstall) for all Sensors within a policy

Resolution

  1. Log in to Cb Defense Web Console
  2. Navigate to "Policy" page from the Settings Icon and select desired policy
  3. Select "Require code to uninstall sensor" option as seen below:

   4. Save Policy

Additional Notes

  • The 3.1 Cb Defense sensor provides admins additional control and protection of their endpoints by letting them require a code to uninstall sensors. Admins can now enable a policy setting that protects the action of uninstalling an endpoint by requiring a unique, randomly-generated code.
  • After this policy setting is enabled, admins can uninstall a group of sensors by using a company deregistration code, or uninstall sensors on a per-device basis by using an individual device uninstall code.
  • At this time there is a known issue when enabling this feature for MacOS 3.1.x Sensor. Additional information and current workaround can be found here: Cb Defense: Controlled Uninstall Doesn't Work With 3.1 Mac Sensor
