CA Data Protection endpoint agents are application plug-ins executing on the end user’s workstation ('endpoint computers'). Endpoint agents monitor user activity for example mails sent to or from Microsoft Outlook where the agent can collect information, and implement capture and control actions in accordance with policy.
