Agent.exe is also a component of Immunet antimalware software. This component should be allowed through your firewall as needed in order for this program to perform your system\'s protection and cloud scanning capabilities. Also, it is worth looking into another component of Immunet that updates malware definitions for the software (updater.exe). You can verify all this info. on the provided link.
