Component

Description

Apex Central server

The computer upon which the Apex Central application is installed. This server hosts the web-based Apex Centralproduct console

Management Communication Protocol (MCP) Agent

An application installed along with Deep Discovery Email Inspector that allows Apex Central to manage the product. The agent receives commands from the Apex Central server, and then applies them to Deep Discovery Email Inspector. It also collects logs from the product, and sends them to Apex Central. The Apex Central agent does not communicate with the Apex Central server directly. Instead, it interfaces with a component called the Communicator.

Entity

A representation of a managed product (such as Deep Discovery Email Inspector) on the Apex Central console’s product directory tree. The product directory tree includes all managed entities.
