You can assign one or more Internet connection methods to computers on the network, based on the resources available in the company’s IT infrastructure.
Once selected, the access method won’t change until it is no longer accessible, when Panda Adaptive Defense 360 will move to the next method in the list until it finds one that is valid. Once it gets to the end of the list, it will go back to the beginning until all connection methods have been tried at least once.
