the agent atleast should be communicating to the Detection server once in a while in that way the incidents are reported.

If the agent machine is not commuicating with the server PGP or DLP server then its hard to prevent.

a couple of options here come to mind they all have been covered here before...


Placec endpoint server in DMZ but use different key for these laptops.

Possibly look @ endpoint server for these users in the cloud

Possibly move endpoint and enforce to cloud

setup vpn from users house to office


force a vpn connection every 5 days for the endpoint to talk with the Universal server

Consider Just PGP desktop delpoyment with out the universal server at least you know it is encrypted.

If you install DLP agent on his laptop, and, this DLP agent got your policy already, then, it will work even the laptop is not connected to your enterprise network.

If a forum post solves your problem, please flag it as a solution. If you like an article, blog post or download vote it up.

did you get the answer you needed. Yang has a valid point also, you also need to remeber that if you change the policy and the laptop doesnt connect back to the netowrk it will not get the policy  update.
