During the evaluation on public cloud(VMs) security product, Below question came into my mind. I would like to request your kind consultancy to fix this challenge

Requirement: Install a security agent on public cloud virtual machines.

Challenge: Unfortunately Root user or ec2-user(AWS), auzreuser(Azure) can uninstall these agents

Question Is there a way that we can configure, in a way that any user in the system to prevent uninstalling/remove above agents only.

May I ask what are the possible approaches we have to achieve this problem ?

Thank you,

How is the security agent installed, via the OS, or by some sort of extension provided by the cloud platform?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
