AutoLocation Switching

A security policy that allows an Agent to automatically adapt the rules and policies based on the location and network environment. For example, locations named Office, Telecommuter, and Home enforce different security policies depending on where the user logs in. If a client connects to the enterprise network using a Symantec Agent with AutoLocation Switching enabled, the Agent automatically determines which location and therefore which security policy must be enforced based on the client’s current network characteristics.
