Supported versions of Apache Tomcat and Java

Apache Tomcat

Apache Tomcat is a mandatory component required to run the ESMC Web Console.

ESMC supports Apache Tomcat 9.x (64-bit). We recommend that you use Apache Tomcat 9.0.33 and later.

ESET Security Management Center does not support alpha/beta/RC versions of Apache Tomcat.


Apache Tomcat requires Java/OpenJDK.



64-bit Java is required.

If you have multiple Java versions installed on your system, we recommend that you uninstall older Java versions (the oldest supported version is Java 8) and keep only the latest version of Java.



Starting January 2019, Oracle JAVA SE 8 public updates for business, commercial or production use require a commercial license. If you do not purchase a JAVA SE subscription, you can use this guide to transition to a no-cost alternative and install one of listed supported Java editions.
