The Trend Micro Security (for Mac) Server

The Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server is the central repository for all agent configurations, security risk logs, and updates.

The server performs two important functions:

  • Monitors and manages Trend Micro Security (for Mac) agents

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

Figure 1. How the Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server works

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