How setting a password affects users
Set a user interface password to deter users with malicious intent.
When you password-protect the user interface on client computers, the following users are affected:
- Non-administrators — Users without administrator rights. Non-administrators run all VirusScan Enterprise applications in read-only mode. They can view some configuration parameters, run saved scans, and run immediate scans and updates. They cannot change any configuration parameters, create, delete, or modify saved scan or update tasks.
- Administrators — Users with administrator rights. Administrators must type the password to access the protected tabs and controls in read/write mode. If a password is not provided for a protected item, they view it in read-only mode.
