Introduction to ESET PROTECT Cloud

ESET PROTECT Cloud enables you to manage ESET products on workstations and servers in a networked environment from one central location without the requirement to have a physical or virtual server like for ESET PROTECT. Using the (ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console), you can deploy ESET solutions, manage tasks, enforce security policies, monitor system status and quickly respond to problems or threats on remote computers.

ESET PROTECT Cloud is made up of the following components:

  • ESET PROTECT Cloud Instance—Handles communication with Agents, and collects and stores application data in the database.
  • ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console—Is the primary interface that enables you to manage client computers in your environment. It displays a status overview of clients on your network and enables you to deploy ESET solutions to unmanaged computers remotely. You can use ESET PROTECT Cloud from any place or device with an internet connection.
  • ESET Management Agent—Facilitates communication between the ESET PROTECT Cloud and client computers. The Agent must be installed on a client computer to establish communication between that computer and the ESET PROTECT Cloud. Because it is located on a client computer and can store multiple security scenarios, the ESET Management Agent significantly lowers reaction time to new detections. Using ESET PROTECT Cloud Web Console, you can deploy the ESET Management Agent to unmanaged computers. If necessary, you can also manually install the ESET Management Agent on client computers.
  • ESET Bridge—Is a service that can be used in combination with ESET PROTECT Cloud to:
    • Distribute updates to client computers and installation packages to the ESET Management Agent.
    • Forward communication from ESET Management Agents to ESET PROTECT Cloud.
  • Mobile Device Management—Is a component for Mobile Device Management with ESET PROTECT Cloud, permitting you to manage mobile devices (Android and iOS) and administer ESET Endpoint Security for Android.
  • Vulnerability & Patch Management—Feature available in ESET PROTECT Cloud that regularly scans a workstation to detect any installed software that could be vulnerable to security risks. Patch management helps remediate these risks through automated software updates, keeping the devices more secure.
