Send a Data Collection Package to CylanceOPTICS Devices

Nine simple steps to collect data to investigate threats

You can send a package to CylanceOPTICS devices that will run a process to securely collect device data and store it in a location of your choice. For example, you can run a process to collect browser data. CylanceOPTICS offers several packages in the management console, or you can create your own custom package. For more information about creating a custom package, see KB66563.
