Service Gateway Overview

Understand how a Service Gateway works in a hybrid network.

A Service Gateway installed in the local network acts as a relay between Trend Micro Vision One and other products, such as on-premises Trend Micro or third-party products. This allows use of Trend Micro cloud services while reducing Internet traffic and sharing threat intelligence.

A Service Gateway consists of a cloud-based inventory list on Trend Micro Vision One and a locally-based virtual appliance.

  • Service Gateway Inventory

    The Service Gateway Inventory on Trend Micro Vision One provides status information on the connected Service Gateway virtual appliances, including appliance details, service statuses, and connected endpoints. The Service Gateway Inventory also allows you to manage the connected Service Gateway virtual appliances.

    For more information, see Service Gateway Inventory.

  • Service Gateway virtual appliance

    The Service Gateway virtual appliance attached to the local network provides services like ActiveUpdate, Smart Protection Services, and Suspicious Object List synchronization to on-premises Trend Micro products. The Service Gateway also supports log forwarding and integration of third-party applications with Trend Micro Vision One. For more information about Service Gateway capabilities, see Configuring Service Gateway Settings.

    Smart Protection Services leverage file and web reputation technology to detect security risks. On-premises Trend Micro products can perform queries against the Service Gateway virtual appliance, which provides Smart Protection either through the local Smart Protection Server on the virtual appliance, or as a reverse proxy.
