This article explains the difference between "Sonicwall-managed" and "Self-managed" versions used in Security Policies in the Capture Client management console.
Capture Client Security Policies
Capture Client has two types of security policies:
1. Capture Client Policies - These are top-level polices applied to the client. They define which version of Capture Client should be installed, and which agent policies will apply to each device.
2. Agent Policies - These are policies define the settings for each major feature or service within Capture Client. The agents policies supported by Capture Client are "Threat Protection" and "Trusted Certificates".
When the Capture Client Version or SentinelOne Agent Version is set to Sonicwall-managed, clients will be upgraded automatically when SonicWall releases a new client version and updates the SonicWall-managed version. When using a SonicWall-managed version in a policy, administrators allow SonicWall to manage upgrades for that client.
When the Capture Client or SentinelOne Agent Version is set to Self-managed, clients will be upgraded only when the administrator explicitly updates the policy to a new version. When using a Self-managed version in a policy, administrators control the version deployed to devices.
