An agent is a program or software component that can perform specific tasks and make decisions on its own, work in coordination with other systems and software, or work independently.

In DLP, agents operate at the kernel to maintain visibility to all actions on the endpoint and enforce data protection policies. These intelligent agents can make decisions and take actions based on the information available to them.

They leverage machine learning algorithms, expert systems, and other artificial intelligence technologies to inform all decisions.
