SmartConsole, SmartUpdate, Security Gateway
Security Management Server, Security Gateway, Command Line Interface
WebUI, SmartConsole, Security Gateway
Standalone deployment – Security Gateway and the Security Management server are installed on the same
Distributed deployment – Security Gateway and the Security Management server are installed on different
Assume an environment with gateways on different sites. Each Security Gateway connects to the Internet on
one side, and to a LAN on the other.
You can create a Virtual Private Network (VPN) between the two Security Gateways, to secure all
communication between them.
The Security Management server is installed in the LAN, and is protected by a Security Gateway. The Security
Management server manages the Security Gateways and lets remote users connect securely to the corporate
network. SmartDashboard can be installed on the Security Management server or another computer.
There can be other OPSEC-partner modules (for example, an Anti-Virus Server) to complete the network
security with the Security Management server and its Security Gateways.
