The Apex One (Mac) Server

The Apex One (Mac) server is the central repository for all Security Agent configurations, security risk logs, and updates.

The server performs two important functions:

  • Monitors and manages Security Agents

  • Downloads components needed by Security Agents. By default, the Apex One (Mac) server downloads components from the Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server and then distributes them to Security Agents.

Figure 1. How the Apex One (Mac) server works

Apex One (Mac) provides real-time, bidirectional communication between the server and Security Agents. Manage the Security Agents from a browser-based web console, which you can access from virtually anywhere on the network. The server communicates with the Security Agents through the ActiveMQâ„¢ protocol.
