This topic only applies to users who run:

  • Windows 2012 Datacenter
  • Windows 2012 R2 Standard
  • Windows 2012 Standard
  • Windows 2016 Full Desktop

For Windows 2012 users, when you install the Armor Agent, the corresponding Trend Micro agent may cause your system to reboot. Trend Micro is currently researching this issue.

Before you begin, Armor recommends that you pre-installation information, including firewall rules.

To learn more, see Requirements for Armor Anywhere.

Before you install the Armor Anywhere agent, you must remove any previously installed anti-virus software, such as Trend Micro, McAfee, etc. Afterwards, you must reboot your system. 

Step 4: Locate the Armor Anywhere agent


Step 5: Download and install the Armor Anywhere agent

Step 6: Test your connection

Step 7: Review the status of the Armor Anywhere agent 

Step 8: Configure your notification preferences

Step 9: (For Account Administrators) Create a role and add permissions

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), roles are similar to job titles that you can create and assign to your users. You can populate these roles with certain permissions. For example, you can create an Audit role, and then you can add specific permissions that will give the assigned user permission to access audit-related features.

By default, a new administrator account contains an Admin role with all the available permissions selected. 

When you create a new user account, you must assign that user a role. You can assign a default role or create a new role. 

There are three default permissions in AMP: 

  • Admin contains every permission in AMP.
  • Technical contains mostly write-only permissions. 
  • Billing contains mostly read-only permissions.

If you want to use a default role, then you can skip to Step 8: Create a user and assign a role

Step 10: (For Account Administrators) Create a user and assign a role

Repeat Step 10: Create a user and assign a role for every user you want to invite.
