Configuring the Atmos Agent Device Posture

The Atmos Agent Device Posture conditions access based on findings from the Atmos Agent, leveraging OSQuery to collect the data on the endpoint. To create an Atmos Agent device posture, make sure you have the Atmos Agent Installed.

Conditions are available based on the selected platform(s). If a condition was selected for one platform, and there is a change in platform (another was added or replaced), the condition may be unavailable.

  • Click Add Condition to open a list of existing conditions. Note: the conditions will vary according to your selected platform(s).
  • Start typing to find a condition.
  • For each condition specify whether it is enabled or disabled.
  • Delete a condition by clicking the delete icon deleedelee icon

The following table lists the conditions:

Condition Name

Description

Platform

Client Certificate

The Atmos Agent checks whether a valid certificate is available in the device’s registry. To pass this posture validation check, the device must have a Root CA certificate.

The admin should upload Root/Intermediate CA Certificate that can be .PEM, .CRT or .CER file types.

Windows, MacOs, both

Crowdstrike

The Atmos Agent checks if Crowdstrike’s Falcon Sensor is installed on the device, and verifies that it is running and reporting.

The Atmos Agent verifies with Crowdstrike API that it is running and reporting to the right Crowdstrike tenant.

Note: This condition is only available if there is an integration between Crowdstrike and Axis Security. Click here to learn more.

Windows, MacOs, both

Domain-Joined

The Atmos Agent checks whether a Windows device is domain-joined to an Active Directory domain. To pass this posture validation check, the device's server domain must be joined to the Active Directory domain that was configured in the Device Posture.

Windows

Firewall

The Atmos Agent inspects the firewall status for all three firewall profiles: public, private, and domain. To pass the posture validation check, at least one must be active.

Windows, MacOs, both

File path

The Atmos Agent searches for a file path that can be found on the users' systems. To pass the posture validation check the device must have that path.

For example, you can enter: C:\Program Files\Git\bin\git.exe

Windows, MacOs, both

Full Disk Encryption

The Atmos Agent checks whether the device has full disk encryption enabled or disabled. To pass this posture validation check, full disk encryption must be enabled.

Note: BitLocker encryption is only supported.

Windows, MacOs, both

Registry Key Path

The Atmos Agent checks against the registry key Path or the Value. To pass this posture validation check, the device must have the specified registry key.

For the registry key path, ensure that the path begins with HKEY.

For example, you can enter: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters

After the path to Parameters, specify the registry entry name; for example, Domain located in the Name column and then the domain name itself, which is located in the Data column.

In this example the path would be KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Domain

then the registry key value would be theirdomainname.com

Windows Patches

The Atmos Agent checks the windows patches installed. To pass this device posture check the relevant patches must be installed.

Note: The admin must explicitly mention every patch that should be checked.

Windows

Processes

The Atmos Agent checks whether a process is running on the computer.
For example: explorer.exe

Windows, macOS, both

Password Protection

The Atmos Agent checks whether the mobile device has password protection.

iOS, Android

Screen Lock

The Atmos Agent checks whether the mobile device has any form of screen locks such as password, facial recognition, fingerprint and more.

iOS, Android

Adding a Policy Rule

A Policy is a collection of rules which provide granular access to your apps depending on a range of parameters. For example, access can be defined based on the destination application groups of the requester. In this use case, the admin can use the device posture created above as a rule that will block or allow access to the application.
