Mass management of settings on installed Agents

New features and improvements as of July 2019
In-session video calling
Technicians now have a Start Video Call option once a session is established. This option allows VoIP calls with a two-way exchange of voice and video streaming through video conferencing.
Use an alternate TCP port
Technicians can now use TCP port 3377 instead of port 443 as an alternate communication with the gateways. This allows technicians to bypass DPI filters that potentially flag DRE as suspicious.
Ability to blank remote screens
Technicians now have the option to blank the remote screen based on modifying the gamma values.
