Integrated Product Packs

Guaranteed State includes a set of out-of-the-box policies known as Integrated Product Packs.

  • MEMCM Client Health PolicyMany businesses rely on Microsoft Endpoint Manager Configuration Manager (MEMCM) to deploy software, patches and updates across their company networks. It is crucial that Configuration Manager is working effectively.
  • Nomad Client Health PolicyNomad is included as part of the 1E Client, and as part of that integration, we offer a Nomad client health compliance policy in Guaranteed State. This verifies common Nomad requirements such as ACP registration, disk availability, firewall exceptions, crash notifications and cache monitoring.
  • Windows Client Health PolicyOver time Windows devices can develop performance problems related to device or service availability. This policy verifies the available storage capacity on devices, notifies of application crashes, monitors WMI health and service function and also checks the behavior of core Windows services.
  • Tachyon Core UtilitiesThis Integrated Product Pack does not include any instructions, policies or rules. However, it does contain a number of triggers, preconditions, checks and fixes that can be used to help build your own policies, as described in Defining your own policy.
