Remote Branches with Proxies

In a medium-sized network (for example, 10,000 to 50,000 clients), an additional layer of ERA Proxy is added. ERA Agents connect to the ERA Proxy. ERA Proxy is included to provide better communication to the remote site (branch office). In this configuration it is still possible for  ERA Agents (located on a remote site) to connect directly to the main server.
