Smart Protection Servers are for users who have access to their local corporate network. Local servers localize smart protection services to the corporate network to optimize efficiency.
There are two types of Smart Protection Servers:
Integrated Smart Protection Server: The OfficeScan Setup program includes an integrated Smart Protection Server that installs on the same endpoint where the OfficeScan server is installed. After the installation, manage settings for this server from the OfficeScan web console. The integrated server is intended for small-scale deployments of OfficeScan. For larger deployments, the standalone Smart Protection Server is required.
Standalone Smart Protection Server: A standalone Smart Protection Server installs on a VMware or Hyper-V server. The standalone server has a separate management console and is not managed from the OfficeScan web console.
