Its analogous to the movie, The Matrix, a cult classic. As we are outside the environment, we are able to see the entire real world. Agent-based systems see only the virtual world in which they are trapped. Consider this scenario. An agent will see that an operating system is allocating 70% of the CPU to a critical application like Exchange. Level Platforms agentless technology sees not only the virtualized operating system but can also see that the Hypervisor running the OS is allocating only 20% of the real CPU to this critical application triggering a critical alert for the MSP.
