Secure Wake on LAN (WOL)

In the SafeGuard Management Center, you can define policy settings for Secure Wake on LAN (WOL) to prepare endpoints for software rollouts. If a relevant policy applies to endpoints, the necessary parameters (for example SafeGuard POA deactivation and a time interval for Wake on LAN) are transferred directly to the endpoints where parameters are analyzed.

The rollout team can design a scheduling script using the commands provided to guarantee maximum endpoint protection despite the deactivation of the SafeGuard POA.

Note: Deactivating the SafeGuard POA - even for a limited number of boot processes - reduces the security of your system!

You define the settings for Secure Wake on LAN (WOL) in a policy of the type Specific Machine Settings.
