2. Download the Agent.

3. Install locally or continue with RMM deployment. 


3. Upload it to the RMM or to a location that it can be installed from.

(See #1 )

4. Deploy using the RMM tool


Be sure to use the correct key for each tenant.
An example RMM MSIEXEC command is shown. (See #2 and #3)


If an RMM isn’t available, see alternative deployment approaches/tools at: 



Install Key Management

A list of tenant keys is also provided on the partner-customer page making it easier to copy the keys to the RMM. For convenience

“copy key” buttons are also provided, the first copying the install key

and the second copying the install command.



It is recommended to add Actifile to the AV/EDR whitelist to prevent performance issues due to blocking Actifile’s

file access.


Exclude the following processes: AFAgentService.exe, AFUpdaterService.exe and AFAgentServiceManager.exe

Exclude the folder + sub folders from scanning: C:\Program Files (x86)\Actifile Agent


If using Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) or SSL Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) the URLs for whitelisting (all

HTTPS port 443): https://app.actifile.com and https://actifileapp1.azurewebsites.net
