About Trend Micro OfficeScan Integration

OfficeScan protects enterprise networks from malware, network viruses, web-based threats, spyware, and mixed threat attacks. An integrated solution, OfficeScan consists of an agent that resides at the endpoint and a server program that manages all agents.

The agent guards the endpoint and reports its security status to the server. The server, through the web-based management console, makes it easy to set coordinated security policies and deploy updates to every agent.

Note:

For information about OfficeScan, see the supporting documentation at:

http://docs.trendmicro.com/en-us/enterprise/officescan.aspx

Use the OfficeScan Endpoint Encryption Deployment Tool plug-in to deploy Endpoint Encryption agents to OfficeScan managed endpoints. You can select endpoints based on specific criteria and see the status of the deployment. After the Endpoint Encryption Deployment Tool plug-in deploys the Endpoint Encryption agent software, the Endpoint Encryption agent synchronizes to PolicyServer using the settings specified in the plug-in. OfficeScan does not manage Endpoint Encryption policies. The OfficeScan agent and the Endpoint Encryption agent are independent on the same endpoint.

The following illustration shows how to deploy Endpoint Encryption on OfficeScan managed endpoints. In this example, Control Manager is the primary management console. However, administrators can use either Control Manager or PolicyServer MMC to manage PolicyServer in OfficeScan deployments.

About Plug-in Manager

OfficeScan includes a framework called Plug-in Manager that integrates new solutions into the existing OfficeScan environment. To help ease the management of these solutions, Plug-in Manager provides at-a-glance data for the solutions in the form of widgets.

Note:

None of the plug-in solutions currently support IPv6. The server can download these solutions but is not able to deploy the solutions to pure IPv6 Endpoint Encryption agents or pure IPv6 hosts.

Plug-in Manager delivers two types of solutions:

  • Native Product Features

    Some native OfficeScan features are licensed separately and activated through Plug-in Manager. In this release, two features fall under this category, namely, Trend Micro Virtual Desktop Support and OfficeScan Data Protection.

  • Plug-in programs

    Plug-in programs are not part of the OfficeScan program. The plug-in programs have separate licenses and management consoles. Access the management consoles from within the OfficeScan web console. Examples of plug-in programs are Intrusion Defense Firewall, Trend Micro Security (for Mac), and Trend Micro Mobile Security.

This document provides a general overview of plug-in program installation and management and discusses plug-in program data available in widgets. Refer to specific plug-in program documentation for details on configuring and managing the program.
