Whitelisting can be applied to both agents and appliances. Appliance whitelists are implemented via monitoring policies; this whitelisting tells the appliances to ignore (not process) the received traffic. Agent whitelisting is implemented via assignment policies; this whitelisting prevents an agent from sending IP traffic over the network and is useful when trying to reduce the overall traffic load on the network.
