The Atmos Agent is a lightweight agent that runs on the end-users machine. The Agent performs device posture analysis, encrypts traffic, and then automatically forwards traffic to the Atmos Cloud. Atmos Agent continuously adapts access rights based on changes in context, and supports applications that require thick client access. The Atmos Agent can even support VOIP (peer-to-peer) and server-initiated (icmp) flows. For web-based applications, Atmos Agent is not required.
