  • This article explains how to install Xcitium Client Security (CCS) on managed endpoints.
  • CCS is the client that implements security on the endpoint. It includes antivirus, firewall, host intrusion prevention, and an automatic threat containment system.

Process in brief:

  • Login to Xcitium

  • Click 'Applications' > 'Endpoint Manager'

  • Click 'Devices' > 'Device List' > 'Device Management' 

  • Select the target endpoints.

    • You can select and install on multiple devices at once, but they must all use the same operating system. E.g. all Windows or all MAC OS.

  • Click the 'Install or Update Packages' button

  • Select the packages you want to install and click 'Install'

  • Endpoint Manager (EM) will push the installation package to the endpoints and install the application

  • The endpoint will restart if so configured in installation options

Process in detail:

Use the following links to see instructions for each operating system:

  • Suppress the reboot- Do not restart the machine after installation. CCS will only become fully functional after the device is restarted.
