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 Trend Micro Endpoint Sensor agents or pure IPv6 hosts.

Plug-in Manager delivers the following:

  • 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 Trend Micro OfficeScan ToolBox and Trend Micro Security (for Mac).

  • Dashboard tabs and widgets

    The OfficeScan Summary screen requires Plug-in Manager to display the tabs and widgets used to monitor the OfficeScan server and agent protection status.

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.
