Manage secure machines on CloudLink Center From CloudLink Center, manage the secure machines to which CloudLink Agent has been deployed. To help you administer and manage these machines, organize them using machine groups. For all machines in a group, the machine group policies determine the role that administers the machines, the conditions under which machines may start up automatically, the encryption that must be in effect for the machine, and so on. For individual machines in a group, you can: Encrypt and decrypt volumes. Encrypt and erase devices. Decide whether or not to enable a particular volume or device to be exempt from the policy for the machine group. Accept, reject, or remove a machine.
